Plan Your Own Backyard Golf GreensIf you're an avid golfer, you probably enjoy practicing any chance you can get. However, now that we're getting into winter, snow on the ground can make it difficult or impossible to go to the driving range or play your favourite course. The joys of Alberta! Adding a synthetic grass putting green to your Edmonton or Calgary area yard can make it easier to squeeze in practice whenever you like. Here's what you need to know to plan a backyard golf green with artificial turf. Call us today to schedule a consultation!

Step 1 - Create a Basic Layout

First, you'll need to decide which components you would like your golf area to have. Will it solely be a putting green, or would you like chipping or fairway-like areas as well? Do you want the putting green to be flat or undulating? Making these decisions early on will help guide the rest of your choices going forward, so don't skip this important step. You can even draw up a rough sketch of how you would like everything laid out. If you would prefer, our design team can create the layout for you, but it helps to have a general sense of what you have in mind so you can inform our team.

Step 2 - Choose Your Synthetic Grass

Next, you'll select specific turf products for each area of your golf practice space. There are many different types of synthetic grass, with varying heights and textures. What you'll need for a putting green will differ markedly from an area meant for chipping or driving. Our turf experts can help guide you in making your selections, explaining the pros and cons of each type of turf so you can make informed decisions.

Step 3 - Get the Right Base and Infill

What lies underneath your synthetic grass is nearly as important as the turf itself in creating the right texture. You'll want your golf greens to mimic natural grass as closely as possible to best replicate the experience of golfing on a course. Depending on the turf products you have chosen, you'll require specific base and infill materials to achieve the desired effects. Rest assured, our team has a lot of experience in this area and can provide expert advice.

Step 4 - Complete the Space with Accessories

From cups and flags to ball-catching nets and artificial sand traps, we've got the accessories you need to create a fully functional area for practicing golf. The right accessories can take your practice area from simple to spectacular, so take your time in evaluating your options. You can count on our team for personalized suggestions to help create the putting green and other golf areas of your dreams.
