Want to know more about home Putting green service?
We’ve put together the answers of some of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about our putting green services, installation and maintenance.
1. What Is Putting Green Grass?
Putting green grass is a short, close-knit artificial grass that simulates the texture and feel of a real golf green. Our artificial at-home putting greens offer you the most realistic playing conditions possible, absorbing the energy of the ball and allowing natural ball roll to mimic natural play.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about over or under watering, applying chemicals to combat infestations or infections, or the ‘grass’ growing any higher than the day it was installed!
2. How Much Will It Cost Me To Install An Artificial Putting Green?
Costs for an at-home putting green are going to vary depending on the shape and size of your space, and the complexity of your design, but as a rule a figure of approximately £85.00 per m2 should be considered.
3. What Is The Best Material For An At-Home Artificial Putting Green?
Our years of knowledge and experience in both the worlds of golf and artificial lawns tell us that polypropylene artificial grass is the best, for both shots in the green and for consistent putting speed.
4. What Makes For The Best Artificial Putting Green?
We think one that offers you as many playing scenarios as possible! Uphill, downhill, fringe shots...even bunker shots can all be possible in your garden with a design from Lookreal Lawns.
5. How Do You Install An Artificial Putting Green?
Once you’ve approved the design that we’ve made with your exact specifications in mind, we’ll start by removing any existing vegetation from the area and laying a strong ground membrane to prevent any weed growth and to improve stability.
A stone layer is applied to complete the base and shape the green, and then a layer of grano dust is screened over to give you a smooth flowing surface. The artificial grass is then fitted, holes cut, and rolled ready to play!
This method will provide a long-lasting green that simulates real game play, as opposed to cheaper versions that just involve laying artificial grass onto a flat area of your garden.
6. How Long Will My Artificial Putting Green Last?
With a good cleaning and maintenance schedule, your artificial putting green can last well over the 10-12 year life span advised by manufacturers - your game has to improve in that time, surely!
7. How Do I Maintain My Artificial Putting Green?
We’re glad you asked! Look Real Lawns offer a twice a year visit to deep clean and roll the surface of your green to ensure that your game continues to improve!
You can do your bit to keep your artificial putting green in tip-top condition by regularly checking the edges for weeds, and removing debris such as leaves and animal droppings with a blower or brush.
