Keep reading to know the importance of infill for artificial putting green installation.
What Infill Does
Essentially, infill sits at the base of artificial grass, holding up the fibres of your artificial grass. At a golf course, the grass on the putting green is short, dense, and upright. Using infill in your indoor putting green and backyard putting green mirrors that effect. These densely packed synthetic fibres allow your ball to roll smoothly and uninterrupted. With infill, you’re able to have the perfect putting experience in the comfort of your own home. In addition, infill keeps your artificial putting green turf weighed down and stable.
Keeps Bacteria Out of Your Lawn
If you’re interested in an outdoor putting green, you may be concerned about the presence of bacteria and contaminants, like mold that are common in natural grass. However, with artificial grass in Toronto from Echoing Green, there’s no organic material around, eliminating the chance of contaminants lingering. Infill goes one step further in keeping bacteria out of your lawn. Infill from Echoing Green creates an extra barrier against contaminants and deters contaminants, like mold and mildew, from infiltrating.
Reduce Wear and Tear
Infill protects the fibres of your synthetic turf as well as the backing. With infill, your outdoor or indoor putting green will stay strong and protected from wear and tear. It basically acts as a buffer between your putter and the turf. It makes your turf less vulnerable to damage from sharp objects, weather, or even animals. With infill, your turf will be long-lasting. It prevents bubbling, lifting, and wrinkling. Aside from keeping it strong, it also keeps grass looking vibrant. It adds extra protection against intense UV rays, keeping your turf cool on sunny days and the perfect shade of green.
Rounded edges on your putting green facilitate water movement, allowing for proper drainage. Infill also improves the drainage of your outdoor putting green. Excellent drainage means you won’t be plagued with puddles or pools of water on your outdoor putting green. Without adequate drainage, your putting practice will be impacted. Your ball won’t roll as far as it should, nor as fast. To learn more about the benefits of high-quality artificial grass installation from our design to workmanship, contact the Echoing Green tea.
