Below we’ve listed the fastest draining turfs on the market. We break down the importance of drainage, and which fast draining products are best suited to different lifestyles.
Why is drainage important?
#1 It Protects Your Property
Having a yard with good drainage protects your home from mud and muck!
Our turf is made with fast draining backings, which we recommend installing over class II road base. That way it won’t become oversaturated and flood during the wet season.
Natural grass is planted in dirt, which turns to mud in the wet season — transforming your yard into Shrek’s swamp. Artificial turf blades are held together by water permeable backings. So instead of having to worry about a soupy mix of mud and grime coating your kids shoes and mucking up your all white home, you can kick back and enjoy the Turf Life.
#2 It Reduces Runoff
By switching to drought-friendly landscaping, you can reduce the amount of water that flows off your property. And the water you do use gets funneled into the soil. This is not only helpful to the environment, it also protects you from potential fines. Here’s how it works.
Turf lawns use substantially less water than natural grass, and it isn’t planted in loose top soil. With turf, you may want to run your hose here and there to wash it off, but you won’t have to constantly run your sprinklers.
Because of artificial turf’s quick draining properties, that little bit of water quickly drains through water permeable backings and is then filtered through class ii road base into the soil below. It doesn’t pool at the surface and then spill over onto the street and sidewalk.
What Artificial Turf Drains Fastest?
The Synthetic Turf Council’s standard for water permeability is a rate of ten inches of water per hour.
Our Hydro series blows this standard out of the water! This product line uses OptimumFlow backings for the best possible drainage. OptimumFlow backings quickly whisks away rain and liquid pet waste to create a more comfortable living environment. They drain liquids up to 10 times faster than a standard backing!
