3 Important Details for a Perfect Artificial Turf Putting Green Installation

August 30, 2023

Whether you’re looking for professional practice or casual family fun, artificial grass putting greens are the future of eco-friendly sports landscaping. Turf putting greens offer the same gameplay as a real grass course but with low maintenance requirements and consistent results with every game.

To create the perfect synthetic turf putting green, however, it’s important to have the right tactics and tools when beginning your artificial turf installation. Before you begin the project, keep in mind these three important details for a perfect artificial grass putting green everyone can enjoy for years to come.

1. A High-Quality Putting Green Surface

If you want a perfect synthetic grass putting green, one of the most important steps to take is to invest in high-quality artificial turf to ensure a quality playing surface. A high-quality surface provides your desired ball roll and stimp speeds, enabling you to achieve realistic play that will help you out on the course.

At Synthetic Grass Warehouse, our putting green turf products are made with a texturized nylon material that offers enhanced durability and consistency when playing while perfectly replicating the look and feel of a natural grass putting green. We also offer an 8-year manufacturer warranty that guarantees your turf against premature wear and tear and manufacturing defects.

To guarantee a perfect playing surface, you’ll need a turf installation that’s just as top-tier as the turf product. Make sure that there are no air bubbles, water bubbles, lifts, tears, or divots in your putting green to ensure you’re able to accurately practice your short game at home.

2. Ballast

Infill is essential to any artificial turf installation, as it provides ballast and cushioning that help maintain the turf grass’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 putting green and its performance.

3. Well-Installed Turf Seams

The most vulnerable area of your artificial grass 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 high-quality artificial turf installation tools. Seaming tools such as seam glue can help secure your turf rolls so they stay perfectly in place even during high winds, heavy storms, daily foot traffic, or any other heavy use. With industry-leading tools from SGW, you can avoid seam movement and damage no matter the weather, extending the lifespan of your investment.
