The Best Time to Install Synthetic Grass

Sacramento residents are choosing artificial grass over natural grass lawns because they know that it will remain beautiful and easy to maintain all year long. There’s never a bad time to take advantage of your pristine synthetic turf backyard. But is there ever a bad time to install it? Artificial grass can be installed whenever you need it to be, but there are certain times of the year that are more optimal for installation than others. Here are some factors that you should take into account when considering the best time to install artificial grass.

Prepare for Summer Early

Homeowners, without a doubt, use their backyards most during the summer. The warm weather encourages playing, parties, barbecues, and all kinds of outdoor fun. Because of this, many people start to consider switching to a more visually appealing and low maintenance landscaping option such as artificial grass in the summertime. However, if you’ve decided to switch to synthetic grass, it’s always best to schedule your artificial grass installation before the summer. Spring and summer are by far the busiest months for installers because so many homeowners consider installation around that time. Scheduling your installation for the fall or winter seasons will guarantee that there’s more flexible availability and increases the chance that your first choice for installer is available.

Beat the Wet Weather

Fall and winter are wonderful times for artificial grass installations, but you do need to be mindful of the weather. Heavy rain can interfere with the installation process, thereby putting the project on hold and extending the time that your yard is under renovation. If possible, try to avoid the rainy season and book your installation for the fall or earlier in the winter. Scheduling your appointment for a drier time of year will ensure that you have an efficient and fully productive installation, saving you time and money. 

Whenever’s Best for You

Ultimately, you should schedule your artificial turf installation for whatever time is most convenient for you and your family. Take into consideration any holidays, graduations, birthdays, summer activities, and any other times of year that require more use of your outdoor space than usual. Choose a time of year that is generally clear of outdoor activities for you, that way you don’t have to worry about renovation projects while you’re in the middle of enjoying summer fun or planning backyard parties. Whether it’s spring, summer, winter, or fall, the best time to install your synthetic grass is whatever time suits your schedule best.

Artificial Turf’s Ultra-Efficient Drainage

Properties all over the Sacramento area are switching to artificial grass landscaping due to its numerous aesthetic and financial benefits. One such benefit of installing artificial grass in your home or business is the inclusion of a highly efficient drainage system such as AirDrain. AirDrain is a geocell drainage grid created by Airfield Services that provides unparalleled efficiency in turf drainage rates. If you’re considering synthetic grass installation for your property, speak to a professional about product drain rates and which synthetic turf option is right for you.

How Does Artificial Turf Drainage Work?

AirDrain is an advanced geocell drainage grid that creates a one-inch air void underneath your artificial grass lawn. It elevates the synthetic grass in order to allow air to circulate and water to drain through rapidly. AirDrain is made from 100 percent recycled copolymer, which means that it will withstand extreme temperatures without sacrificing performance. By creating a pocket of space between the artificial grass and the concrete, the drainage system is able to flush away pet waste and other bacteria with unrivaled efficiency. This keeps your lawn clean and sanitary for you and your family to enjoy.

Drain Rates Perfect for Pet Turf

Artificial turf’s 100 percent vertical drainage makes it the ideal landscaping solution for kennels, dog parks, vet clinics, or homes with pets. Liquid and solid pet waste can be washed away quickly thanks to the 92 percent air void underneath the synthetic turf, so you can keep the area as clean and odor-free as possible. A flushing system can also be installed for even greater drainage capabilities. This system is low cost and easy to install, utilizing any water source and inexpensive PVC piping. Keep any animal common areas free from unpleasant odors and harmful bacteria with artificial turf’s remarkable drainage courtesy of Artificial Turf by Fenix.

Synthetic Grass Drainage for Playgrounds

Synthetic turf’s efficient drainage is advantageous for kids’ areas such as playgrounds as well. For play area turf, the drainage system is placed on top of the polygreen foam pad that protects kids from impact falls. The artificial grass and infill are then placed on top of the drainage system to complete the installation. All playground areas need proper water drainage in order to keep the area dry and free from bacteria. Playground drainage also results in a more stable surface area and consistent HIC testing results, making it a generally safer play surface for children. 

Whether you want artificial grass for your residential lawn or your commercial establishment, its efficient drainage system can handle any demand. With a drainage capability of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, Sacramento residents never have to worry about flooded lawns or slip and fall risks.
