Benefits of Synthetic Grass in Rainy Season

April 12, 2019

As the spring showers begin, many homeowners start to wonder whether their artificial turf can stand up to a downpour without suffering any damage. Although California doesn’t experience any particularly harsh weather, Sacramento still experiences an average rainfall of over 18 inches per year. Although many California residents enjoy synthetic grass for its drought-resistant qualities, synthetic grass lawns can provide numerous benefits during the rainy season as well.

The blades of grass in artificial turf are made with a naturally waterproof polyethylene material. This allows the blades to dry quickly and remain undamaged after the rain has passed. Our turf also has a porous backing which allows for rainfall to flow through, rather than trapping the water on the surface as a natural grass lawn would. With synthetic turf, you experience no pooling on the surface of your grass, meaning no mud or flooding like rainy seasons of the past. The lack of mud with artificial turf means that there will be no muddy footprints or pawprints tracking their way through your house. Since synthetic turf is so durable as well, wet grass blades being tracked in are a worry of the past, too.

Our turf products have a drainage rate over 30 inches of rain per hour per square yard – more than enough to accommodate California weather! Our ultra-efficient drainage system means that water will flow freely out into storm drains instead of flooding your yard. Your artificial grass will be dry right away, so you and your family can play outside as soon as the sun emerges.

Heavy rain and snowmelt can also cause real grass lawns to get soggy, which allows mold, mildew, and other allergens to develop in your yard. Artificial grass has a dry surface and an efficient drainage system, which means that your lawn stays more sanitary and your family allergy free year round.

Say goodbye to muddy footprints, flooded yards, bald patches, and allergens. With artificial turf, your grass will look healthy and lush all year long, regardless of how wet or dry the season is. After a quick rake, your grass will look as good as new even after the worst monsoons – no reseeding or repairing ever! Whether you’re enduring a Sacramento rainy season or anticipating the drought of a California summer, artificial grass is your solution for a low-maintenance, perfectly manicured lawn 365 days a year.
