When it comes to installing a backyard putting green, not all artificial turfs are created equal. Understanding the features that differentiate high-quality putting green turf can help you make the best choice for your home golf practice area. Here’s what you need to know:

Material Quality

The primary factor in determining the quality of putting green turf is the material. High-quality putting greens are made from durable, UV-resistant polyethylene or polypropylene fibers. These materials ensure the turf remains resilient and vibrant even after prolonged exposure to sunlight and heavy use.

Pile Height and Density

A high-quality putting green turf has an optimal pile height and density.

• Pile Height: The length of the grass blades should be around 0.5 to 1 inch for putting greens.

• Density: The number of stitches per square inch is equally important. A dense turf provides a smoother, more consistent roll, closely mimicking natural greens.

Infill Material

Infill is another critical component. Quality putting green turf uses infill materials like silica sand or crumb rubber to support the turf blades, ensuring they remain upright. This infill also helps with drainage and adds weight, preventing the turf from shifting over time.

Backing and Drainage System

The backing of the turf is crucial for durability and performance.

• Multi-Layered Backing System: Look for a system that includes a solid urethane layer. This ensures the turf is strong and can withstand regular use.

• Efficient Drainage System: High-quality putting green turf has perforations that allow water to pass through quickly, keeping the surface dry and ready for play.

Installation Expertise

Even the best turf will underperform if not installed correctly. At St. Louis Artificial Grass Experts, we ensure:

• Precise Ground Preparation: Properly preparing the ground before installation.

• Proper Turf Placement: Ensuring the turf is placed correctly.

• Secure Fastening: Making sure the turf is securely fastened to avoid shifting.

• Adequate Infill Application: Applying the right amount of infill to support the turf blades.

Professional installation guarantees that your putting green is free of wrinkles and shifts, providing a seamless playing experience.

Customization Options

High-quality putting green turf is customizable to fit your specific needs. Whether you want different hole placements, varied green speeds, or unique undulations, we can tailor the turf to create a putting green that matches your preferences and improves your game.

Longevity and Warranty

Top-tier putting green turf comes with a warranty that reflects its longevity. Look for products with warranties of at least 10-15 years, indicating the manufacturer’s confidence in the turf’s durability and performance.
