If you play golf, you realize how many hours must be spent simply practicing your driving and your putting. These are the two most important aspects of the game, one launching the ball from the starting point to as close to the hole as possible, and the other taking as few strokes as possible to get the ball from the green into the hole. Both of these skills are able to be practiced at home to a certain extent, but are best practiced in a real world environment. This means that the real practice that actually helps your game the most is going to be on a real course with grass instead of carpeting, where you can actually feel the way the ball rolls, and begin to notice the visual differences in pitch that will cause the ball to roll one way or another. This is the type of practice that you are going to need to spend hours doing, and unfortunately there is almost no way to simulate a real course in your home, or is there?
A backyard putting green is a space in your yard where we specifically shape the ground and install close cropped artificial turf so as to simulate the look and feel of a real world putting green. Because it is not indoors and installed over cement, it does not have the feel of a mini-golf course, and instead has the nuances that a real putting green has. Our professional installers have lots of experience creating putting greens, so we can do them in many different shapes and sizes that will keep your play interesting for many years to come. Because the install is professional and uses professional equipment to get the compacting, shaping and slopes correct, you are not going to get the problems with the ball rolling incorrectly that you will find with most DIY putting greens. The takeaway is that we know how to install the artificial turf the correct way that is going to prevent splitting at the seams, loosening or bagging in the traffic areas, and imperfect shaping that causes bumps that will interfere with play. Your new backyard putting green will be the closest thing to the real thing that you are every going to find.
Because you live in Las Vegas, if you a re removing real grass to install your putting green you can also qualify for many of the programs and rebates that are put through the water authority during drought times. These programs encourage the install of water smart landscaping, and because you are using artificial turf your new backyard putting green will qualify for the rebates that are offered. It is important to discuss this with our sales people prior to install, so as to get the paperwork correctly submitted that will get you your discounts. This is one of the best ways to improve your property and improve your game at the smame time, and now you can save money while doing it.
