How to Perfect Your Putting Green Turf Surface
Once you’ve finally made the decision that a backyard putting green is right for your home and your family, it’s time to start thinking about how it will be built: design, installation, and materials. For the best performance and longevity of your new backyard putting green, artificial grass in Toronto is the ideal material. At Echoing Green, you can find a selection of high-quality grasses engineered to excel. Installed indoors or outdoor, our putting green turf is equipped for the changing seasons and continual use. But to get the best play out of your artificial turf putting green, you’ll need more than the best artificial grass in Toronto; you’ll also need careful and quality installation.
Backyard Putting Green Surface
To get the desired play and ball roll from a backyard putting green, the putting green turf must be specially designed for putting and ball roll. If there are air bubbles, water bubbles, lifts, tears, or divots in your putting green, you won’t be able to accurately practise your putting. For effective artificial grass installation with putting green turf that you can trust, contact Echoing Green. Our team specializes in synthetic grass putting green turf, design, and installation in Canada.
Infill, which is used in all turf applications, is multi-purpose, but its primary purpose is to add ballast to artificial grass in Toronto. In synthetic backyard putting greens, infill is distributed evenly and strategically throughout the putting green, weighing down the base of the turf to provide long-term stability. Properly including infill in your artificial grass putting green will also hold up the synthetic grass fibres keeping them in an upright position which protects the play and ball roll of the green.
The seams between two pieces of artificial grass are the most vulnerable area of a backyard putting green. They can be affected by thermal movement, weather, and other factors. When artificial grass moves, the seams can lift, and wrinkles form. However, this can be avoided entirely with the proper installation strategy. At Echoing Green, our tried and true approach to artificial grass installation includes careful mending the seams with seam glue and fastening the putting green turf, so it is secure despite high winds, heavy storms, or whatever other weather conditions are thrown its way,
Maintenance & Upkeep
While artificial grass in Toronto is famously maintenance-free, a little upkeep can extend the lifespan of your turf. There is still no tedious watering, weeding, or mowing required of you to care for your backyard putting green. Instead, try brushing turf to help revive fibres after long dormant periods. Be sure not to use metal rakes and wired brushes as they can cause tears to the synthetic fibres and backing of the turf affecting its ball roll and play. It’s also helpful to pick up any stray items that may have landed on your backyard putting green to stop them from interfering with your turf.
