When a person is considering having artificial grass installed, one of the most common concerns is that it will allow water to pool and cause issues. The good news is that this is far from the truth.

Most homeowners with any sized yard assume that occasionally dealing with mud cannot be avoided. This is not the case if they invest in artificial grass. The unique drainage system means that water does not muddle up – which means mud is never formed in the first place. Your kids can go out and play without tracking in mud from the yard, and you can even send your pets out without worry.
If you have anyone living at your home that deals with allergens then they will be glad to hear that the drainage process of artificial grass can actually reduce the number of allergens they must deal with. If you have a person who deals with bugs, they will be glad to hear that it helps reduce bugs too. How? Because there is no standing water.
When grass attracts standing water, natural grass can invite all sorts of problems such as allergens, bugs, mold, mildew, misquotes, and worse. Artificial grass’s quick-draining means that these are not issues with it.
Remember that natural grass takes a huge amount of water to live – but then when it gets too much, that water is lost as runoff. Since you do not have to water artificial grass, this is never an issue. When it rains, the drainage system does not simply let the water runoff – it goes down into your yard’s soil and aquifer, which is essential for eco-sustainability.
When your natural grass gets wet, or even a little bit damp with dew, it can be extremely slippery. Messiness aside, this can make it unpleasant and downright dangerous to play on – let alone walk on. This is not an issue with artificial grass. It is surprising to many to learn that it is not slippery even when it is wet.
