How to Choose the Right Putting Green for You

putting-greensOne of the newest ideas involving artificial turf is the growing trend of backyard putting greens. Considering not many people have the time to spare three or four hours playing the full 18 holes, it makes sense to want to install a personal putting green. As people get older and realize that they don’t need to devote the entirety of the backyard to their children, they are making some unique choices when it comes to their backyards. In lieu of swimming pools, playsets and mini soccer fields, they are instead looking to Palm Springs Greens to install custom putting greens that fit their needs and personal style. Before doing so, we recommend asking yourself these questions to ensure that you get the look and feel you want.

How Much Room Do You Have?

One of the most important questions you have to ask yourself is how much room you actually have to work with. This is an important question and will significantly impact the style and size of putting green you can design. We can install a putting green nearly anywhere, but we want to make sure you have the greens you want instead of just settling for whatever fits. Using your free consultation, we will be able to decide just the right size of putting green your yard can accommodate and still succeed in providing you with the putting green of your dreams.

What Is The Skill Level of The Players Who Will Use it?

The skill level of the players who will be utilizing the putting green should be taken into account. Answering this question will help us determine the type of grass we use to build your putting green. If there will be novices taking advantage of the green, it is imperative that you install a thick, durable grass to withstand any accidental digs or chip shots. However, if the players are more experienced you can go with a lighter, more realistic grass to give you the perfect roll every time.

How Much Time Will You Have For Maintenance?

Though the maintenance of artificial putting green grass is minimal compared to the high maintenance requirements of real grass, every now and then you will have to tend to it in order to maintain its rigidity and shine. This will impact the size of your installation. If you don’t have much time to get out, it might be beneficial to install a smaller putting green rather than a large one that will require more time than you have.
These are three questions that our installation technicians will ask you when coming out for your consultation. Once you answer these questions, Palm Springs Greens will know for sure the perfect putting green to suit you, your family and your lifestyle.
