This is How We Ensure Proper Drainage for Your Artificial Grass Installation in San Antonio TX

An artificial putting green can be a fantastic addition to any yard, but only if it’s properly installed. Drainage is one of the most important aspects of an artificial grass installation in San Antonio TX, including putting greens.

Without proper drainage, putting greens are prone to puddling, which is bad for both the turf and the player. For instance, puddles (no matter how small) can disrupt ball roll and become hazards.

Additionally, standing water can lead to mold, mildew and provide a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests. In the worst cases, the lack of proper drainage can even cause serious flooding after a particularly bad storm. 

In order to avoid these problems, the Amazing Turf and Lawn team makes sure to take the following steps when creating your synthetic putting green:

  • Examine The Site

First, our team takes a look at the terrain in order to determine any potential problems. If the area is prone to puddling or flooding, then the entire site will be graded so that it’s free of puddles and drains properly. 

  • Install A Drainage Layer in Artificial Grass

During artificial grass installation in San Antonio, TX, we will install a drainage layer that will help water flow out of the site and into the surrounding soil. This is typically made from granulated stones or another aggregate material. 

It’s important to note that this layer should never be installed on top of soil, as it will work against the drainage layer, instead of with it.

  • Cover The Drainage Layer in Artificial Grass

Now that the drainage layer is in place. It needs to be covered with a fabric material that will help water drain through it into the soil. This type of fabric is typically made from permeable geotextile material and is an important part of any artificial turf installation in San Antonio, TX.

  • Install The Putting Green Turf

Finally, our team installs artificial turf in San Antonio TX for your putting green. The installation process is also designed to support the drainage capabilities of your green. 

For example, we make sure that all seams are properly sealed to prevent water from seeping through. Our team also takes care not to overlap the seams of the turf, as this can lead to puddling or cause mold and mildew to form between pieces.
