The big squelch

Your lawn looks like earth from afar with bodies of water, continents and islands. If you are one of the ‘lucky’ ones where the water eventually does drain when it actually decides to stop raining you are left with a quagmire with quicksand capabilities or a slippery mess resulting in bruised egos (and behinds), dirty clothes and a silty washing machine.

Artificial grass can be the answer to drainage issues allowing a dry surface whenever required. You wouldn’t paint a house without preparing the surface beforehand, artificial grass is the same as its only as good as its installation. Any issues can easily be overcome to ensure your investment still meets your high expectations.

Ongoing drainage issues can be detrimental to artificial grass not only shortening its life span but undermining it causing an uneven surface and losing its uniform look.

Not all artificial grass suppliers and installers are the same. It is important that all existing, natural grass and debris are removed before building the subbase as it is this that does the draining! Cheaper is often not better and skimping on the installation of such an important investment could end up costing you longer in the long run, feeling short changed, burnt and potentially missing out on the benefits of such a versatile product.

If you have drainage issues and you are worried that your land is not suitable for artificial grass, think again. Quality artificial grass is ideal for areas with high rain fall and persistent drainage issues.

Laying the artificial grass should be considered the end product of successful preparation not just rushing to install and be done with it.
