Whether you’re looking for professional practice or casual family fun, artificial grass putting greens are the future of eco-friendly sports landscaping. Many Bay Area families are making the switch to water-wise synthetic grass, and with turf putting greens, you can incorporate an activity the whole family will love.
If you’re starting your journey toward a personal putting paradise, you may have some questions about the basics to help you decide whether an artificial grass putting green is right for you. Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions, so you can take the next step in perfecting your short game.
Q: How Much Does It Cost?
Naturally, the cost of your artificial grass putting will depend on a range of variables such as the type of turf used, the size and shape, the installation difficulty, and any upgrades or customizations you incorporate.
Luckily, since artificial grass putting greens can be fully customized, you can design one to fit your budget, no matter what it is. It’s also important to consider the costs of both installation and maintenance when making your decision. While the upfront cost of a synthetic turf putting green may be higher than natural grass, you won’t have to worry about the costs of mowing, fertilizing, and other regular maintenance. In fact, synthetic grass owners see a return on investment in just 3-5 years.
Q: How Long Does It Last?
When properly installed and maintained, an artificial grass putting green can last around 15 years and as many as 25 years. SGW synthetic turf is extremely durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions; you don’t have to worry about it being affected by drought, rain or snow.
Additionally, since it doesn’t require mowing or other maintenance, you can use your putting green 365 days a year and it will always be in perfect playing condition. On the off chance something does compromise the lifespan of your turf, SGW offers an 8-year manufacturer warranty on all putting green turf products.
Q: Why Is It Better Than Natural Grass?
There are many advantages to using artificial grass instead of natural grass for your putting green. Firstly, artificial turf requires far less maintenance than natural grass, so you don’t have to worry about mowing, watering, and other annoyances that cut into your playing time.
Additionally, artificial turf is more durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions, making it a great choice if you live in an area with harsh winters or stifling summers. No matter what time of year or how long since you last watered, an artificial grass putting green will always be perfect for play.
Q: Can It Be Customized to My Playing Style?
Each artificial grass putting green is custom designed, so you can tailor it exactly to your preferences. Your installer can work with you to create a custom putting green that is optimized for your backyard size, shape, and topography as well as your playing style and practice needs.
You can decide what shape and size the course is, where the holes are located, whether to incorporate sand traps or bunkers, and much more. Whether you want a simple putting green to enjoy with the family or a more challenging course for serious practice, synthetic turf can bring your vision to life.
