So you finally went and did it. You bought a house in Las Vegas and have moved here in order to take advantage of the easy lifestyle, the year-round sunshine and access to world-class golf courses. For an avid golfer like yourself, it is like paradise. You have access within driving distance of your home of some of the best golfing in the country, and you plan on making the most of it and getting out on the links as often as possible. So doesn’t it make sense to improve your game before you get out there? Doesn’t it make sense to make sure that you can practice as often as possible? Why not afford yourself the ultimate luxury and install a backyard putting green out of synthetic turf?
While driving to a great golf course is certainly one of the best things about living in Las Vegas, having a practice putting green right in your own back yard is even better. Imagine taking that area of your yard that is hardly getting any use at all right now and being able to work on your short game every weekend for as much time as you want. You can have that, and it might be a lot less expensive than you think. Las Vegas is currently in a drought situation, and as a result of that water shortage the county is encouraging people to conserve water by removing their existing sod and replacing it with artificial turf. That artificial turf does not have to be a certain length or look, it only has to fit into the classification of “water smart,” which means that it uses no water. Artificial turf that is short and designed for the purpose of practicing your golf game qualifies as “water smart” and therefor also qualifies for the rebates that the county is offering to homeowners who remove their sod and replace it. The current rebate is 2 dollars for every square foot of grass that is removed, so it is actually beneficial for you to install that putting green from a money saving standpoint!
Creating functional spaces in Las Vegas homes adds value, and you will improve the resale value of your home by putting in a putting green. Even if the next owners are not golfers, they will see the value of the perfectly manicured artificial grass as dog areas or play areas for children. You can even put a table and chairs on it and just use it as a gathering space. In a nutshell, a backyard putting green is going to save you money, add value to your home, and also give you the opportunity to practice your golf game any time the sun is shining. When you made that decision to move to Las Vegas, you were picturing a specific kind of life. Now is the time to take advantage of the savings and rebates that you can get and actually create that life that you were thinking of at your own home.
