Installing an artificial grass putting green can be a great addition to any home, providing hours of entertainment and a convenient place to practice your golf skills. However, it’s important to take the necessary steps to ensure that your putting green is installed correctly and will last for years to come. Here are four important steps to take for a perfect artificial grass putting green installation:
1. Add Synthetic Grass Infill
Infill is essential to any artificial turf installation, as it provides stability and cushioning that help maintain the turf’s shape and integrity. Not only does it weigh down the base of the turf for added stability, but synthetic turf infill also supports each turf blade and keeps it upright.
Without adequate infill, your unsupported turf blades will quickly become matted, affecting the ball roll as you play. You’ll also experience wrinkling and other abnormalities that negatively impact the texture of the turf and its performance.
2. Protect Your Artificial Turf Seams
The most vulnerable area of your synthetic turf is the area where two pieces of turf meet, also called the seam. The seams of your putting green can be affected by freeze-thaw cracking, weather, foot traffic, and other factors, causing the seams to lift and wrinkles to form.
The best way to prevent seam movement is to start with a high-quality artificial turf installation. With a proper installation strategy, you can avoid seam movement and damage no matter the weather, extending the lifespan of your investment.
3. Perform Regular Upkeep
Synthetic turf is one of the best landscaping options on the market because it’s remarkably low-maintenance compared to other landscape solutions. Watering, weeding and mowing are worries of the past, so you can spend more hours enjoying your green space. However, occasional artificial turf maintenance is necessary to protect the condition of your putting green and help it last as long as possible.
Routine artificial grass putting green upkeep includes removing large debris, rinsing your turf down occasionally to aid drainage and remove dust, and cross-brushing turf after dormant periods to revive the turf blades. Just be sure to use a brush with synthetic fibers and never metal prongs, as they can cause tears in the polyethylene turf blades.
