Putting greens are a great way to practice golf in the middle of the off-season, especially if you live in an area that doesn't get much snow or rainfall. They can be installed in either a roll form or a modular form that's ready to play when it arrives at your house.
Step 1: Choose the right location for your Putting Green In Your Backyard
The first step is always identifying a good location to install the putting green. If there is a flat spot in your backyard or near your house, that is the best possible location to place your course. The area should be away from trees, fences, rooftops and poles that might interfere with your golf game. It also makes sense to leave enough space around either side of the green for you and other players or neighbours to walk entirely around it without getting too close to any obstacles on the other side of it.
Step 3: Selecting where your holes will go
The first step is digging a hole to create the round-shaped putting green cups. The depth of this hole should be the length of your longest putt plus 3-5 inches (7-13cm). Next up, it’s time to line out yardage markers on both sides of this new putting green, so you know how far from cups each handicap goes off when they hit their ball into them. You want these yardage markers if for no other reason than those times when putts are short but not immediately apparent which cup they went in because there was a pile-up where all or most balls were rolling back after everyone had put already.
Step 4: Installing artificial grass Putting Green
The synthetic turf we offer comes in rolls that are typically 24" wide by 15' long but can also be cut into narrower strips or 2' wide for doormat size patches. The most important part about installing the artificial putting green is making sure it looks as realistic as possible. Before installing your artificial putting green, make sure there's good uniformity with fade gradients from light to dark when looking at the individual tufts and blades. Other things to consider when installing an artificial starting ground include seam position; how many seams should you have? Voids between blades may shrink over time & should be filled with infill products for a more realistic appearance; how much infill should I use? Dyed faux sheep's
