In Fort Worth, Texas we have a love-hate relationship with rainy weather. On the one hand, sometimes we beg for the rain!
However, after years of drought, we are painfully aware of the problems that can be caused when there isn’t enough water. Smart and concerned property owners have stepped up, many replacing their water-greedy natural grass lawns with artificial turf.
Curious about what happens when it rains so much we start to see flooding? As much as we’re happy to see rain from the sky, rain can often create problems.
Runoff that carries harmful chemicals into the water systems, shifts in soil, or holes getting created. Will the rain create problems for your new fake grass, like a normal yard?
We’re happy to report the answer is NO WAY! Artificial grass remains true to itself, and your expectations, regardless of rain or droughts. And that’s more than you can say for natural grass. Why does synthetic turf hold up so well in rainy weather?
1. Doesn’t fall apart
We don’t usually think of natural grass as “falling apart,” but in fact, the blades can break off under high foot traffic, especially if the grass is under duress such as in rainy weather. Broken grass blades are like the clippings you get from mowing – clingy and messy, inevitably getting tracked around your patio and into the house. Artificial grass may become a bit flattened under really high traffic, but the blades remain intact. Take a stiff bristle broom and brush the surface and all is well.
2. Made to hold up
Synthetic grass and turf do not degrade, change colors, or fall apart in the traditional sense, either. Certainly not the high-quality artificial grass. The superior quality products we sell at Superior Synthetic Grass & Turf in Fort Worth. Our grass is backed by some of the industry’s top warranties when it comes to length and coverage. Quality products hold up longer and present you with fewer problems along the way.
One reason that quality fake grass is able to do hold up so well, is that there are different types of artificial turf designed for different types of applications. Sports fields, luxury lawns, rooftops, playgrounds, putting greens, and even bocce ball courts all have different requirements that must be accounted for. At Superior Synthetic Grass & Turf, we offer a wide range of artificial turf products that will be perfect for your installation.
3. Installed to prevent problems
Quality synthetic grass is more than a luxurious groundcover, it is a multi-layer system that ensures maximum drainage and even stability for the grass that is seen and felt on the surface. That’s why professional artificial grass installation is particularly important. Thee greatest products will not hold up if you cut corners on the installation. In fact, a lack of proper installation could go farther than impacting the product’s lifespan, it could even void your warranty.
4. Helps you hold up better, too
Why does artificial grass hold up better than real grass? The reason it holds up better is that if you take a shortcut to cross your lawn and the turf is wet, you won’t have to worry about slipping, falling down, and possibly getting injured. You will not need to worry about muddy depressions and possible erosion. Artificial turf doesn’t get slippery like natural grass. This means you can send the kids or pets out to play on the lawn, even if the grass is wet or the weather is questionable. They won’t care about getting wet, and you can be confident they’re playing on a safer surface.
