Can turf get flooded?

Unfortunately, flooding can also affect turf or synthetic turf. Turf floods cause much more damage than synthetic turf floods. Fortunately, most of the time synthetic grass isn't even prone to flooding. If a flood affects your field, it's best to contact your synthetic turf supplier right away and request an evaluation.

They should be willing to visit your site to assess the damage and determine the best course of action to remedy the post-flood recession. It is also recommended to take photographs throughout the flood stages, as well as their respective damage, for full documentation of the incident. Under normal circumstances, it's highly unlikely that your artificial grass will be flooded. The excellent synthetic grass products we sell here at Heavenly Greens, combined with our expert installation, ensure consistent, reliable drainage that far exceeds what you get with live grass.

However, in an extremely heavy downpour, the ground may not be able to absorb water as quickly as it falls. Rainwater temporarily accumulates waiting its turn to enter the ground. When it comes to drainage and artificial turf, it's important to know that turf drainage is measured in inches per hour. With most artificial grass, the standard drain is 28 inches per hour.

You can determine the drainage of a lawn by looking at the back of the lawn to inspect the size and number of drain holes.  You can also inspect if gutter drains is working properly, preventing stagnant water and debris at your property, which can more damage. If you are need to get on the roof, but is unsure if you can get the jog done safely, you can get the help of a service like Gutter Cleaning Columbia.

If you're looking for a specific lawn for pets, you can see that there are larger diameter holes to accommodate larger pets. So, unless your furry friend goes to the bathroom at more than 28 inches per hour, you'll be fine.
