What Qualities to Seek Out In Your Putting Green Turf?
As homeowners in the city seek to enhance their homes with additional functionality and personalization, a backyard putting green made of artificial grass in Toronto is a creative and fun way to take the average yard up a notch. A golf green installed with high-quality materials and workmanship can transform your home into an inviting, entertaining, and unique space. However, for a backyard golf green to really be worthwhile, it shouldn't be made using just any turf. To perform well and last long, putting green turf should be high quality and manufactured to meet the following standards.
A putting green will typically experience a lot of foot traffic as people walk to and from the hole. Whether you're engaging in friendly competition or practicing solo, a golf green will also experience repetitive hits from the putter. Synthetic turf designed for durability will resist the wear and tear that would cause bald spots and divets in the green.
To enhance the toughness of your green, quality infill, like Envirofill, can be used during artificial grass installation to keep grass strands standing upright even after enduring constant foot traffic. Even during heavy winds and rains, an effective infill will hold down artificial grass in Toronto.
Any synthetic turf should be manufactured to support proper drainage. If water were to collect on top of your backyard putting green for extended periods of time, it would likely invite unwanted pests and foster bacteria. Artificial grass in Toronto unequipped to drain rainwater will have a significantly shorter lifespan than turf specifically designed to facilitate the flow of water. At Echoing Green, our professional grass is built to support drainage and prolong the life of the putting green.
One weed sprouting in the middle of an otherwise pristine backyard putting green can ruin the entire aesthetic. After all, one of the benefits of artificial grass is its minimal maintenance needs. To ensure that your putting green remains weed-free, your synthetic turf company should install a fabric weed barrier that would effectively stop weeds from taking root even if neighbouring natural lawns experience a weed infestation.
Infill is an essential part of your artificial grass installation. The best infill should add weight to your turf, be designed with anti-microbial technology, and hold the shape of the grass. Envirofill helps to prevent mold or mildew growth and odours. It also delays the deterioration of your putting green turf.
Ultraviolet light (UV Rays) can be damaging to fabrics out in the sun. The colour and quality of a putting green can be extended when designed to protect grass from overheating and its colour from fading or bleeding. Artificial grass from Echoing Green is manufactured to prevent damage from the sun's harmful UV rays, so your putting green will stay vibrant longer.
A putting green isn't an actual putting green without a cup and flag for the holes. When your backyard golf green is built by the professionals at Echoing Green, we'll install a fully functional green with the flags and cups for the hole so you can have all the full experience of a golf course from your backyard.
At Echoing Green, we provide premium quality artificial grass in Toronto, so your backyard putting green performance that's up to par.
