Drainage issues are some of the most frequent reasons homeowners decide to install artificial grass in Jacksonville, FL. Real grass needs lots of water, but improper drainage on your property can make the problem worse. We're not talking about mere puddles and muddy spots. That's pretty commonplace in the Florida rainy season. What we're talking about is inefficient drainage completely ruining your lawn and causing fungus growth.
Artificial turf never has drainage problems. Because, it doesn't have any roots, it won't catch diseases or die. Therefore, drainage issues have no impact on it. Pretty cool huh? Let's take a look at some of the common drainage issues that homeowners with real grass can encounter.
Lawn bubbles appear when water collects at the bottom of the lawn because it can't drain. This causes patches of dead grass that have pockets of water underneath them. Some homeowners will go out and pop the bubble manually, but they always reappear because the underlying drainage issue isn't addressed.
A proper drainage system will prevent lawn bubbles from forming by causing water to drain away from your lawn.
