If you love to play golf, you should consider installing a backyard putting green. You can then golf any time you want, and this also gives you a place to practice your golf swing. Below are some things to consider when you install a backyard putting green to be sure you are pleased with it.
Choose the Size
The most important thing to do is to choose the size of your putting green. This will also determine the costs you will pay to have it installed. If you want to save money, then you need to choose a smaller size. Consider how much of your backyard you want to sacrifice for your backyard putting green.
To help you determine this, purchase some lawn paint and use string to map out the putting green. You can purchase lawn paint at home improvement stores or online. It will come off after it rains. This will allow you to visualize how large it is going to be.
Choose the Layout
Once you determine how large you want your backyard putting green you must decide on the layout. Consider how much area you want to use for putting your golf balls and where you want to install the cups. Consider placing taller turf around the putting green to separate it from your backyard.
The slope will also have to be taken into consideration so you will have the right break areas on the surface. The company can show you premade layouts or you can create a custom layout for your yard.
Maintaining the Backyard Putting Green
To ensure your artificial backyard putting green lasts a long time you need to ensure you take care of it properly. The most important thing is to not drive cars or any type of heavy vehicles on the turf as it will cause damage. Purchase a leaf blower to remove debris from the turf regularly. If you have pets that urinate on the turf, you need to clean it off immediately or it will cause a stain.
If you need to wash the turf do not use a pressure washer but instead rinse it with a garden hose. If you need to groom the turf, use a soft or plastic brush, and do not set a grill or anything else that produces smoke near the putting green.
