Have you recently installed an artificial putting green or are you considering installing one in your Brisbane backyard? Either way, here’s an article about how to take care of your artificial putting green.
Artificial putting greens, also known as ‘grass carpets’, are great for the practice of your putting and chipping. Despite what many people think, they’re not just limited to use on a golf course and can be used in the comfort of your own backyard.
With proper care, artificial greens can last for up to 25 years, meaning you’ll have to spend much less money on a practice green than if you were to buy a natural putting green.
But how exactly do you take care of your artificial putting green? Here are some simple rules:
1) Make sure the surface is flat and smooth
This might seem like common sense, but make sure the surface you’re putting on is flat, level and free of bumps.
2) Try not to move things onto it
Make sure you don’t use your green to store all of your golfing equipment or other materials. Not only can it damage the surface if something heavy is put on top, but it will also change the shape and consistency of your putting green over time.
3) Brush it regularly
Make sure you try and brush your backyard putting green regularly, at least once a week, for best results. Doing this will help the fibres stand up, making them look more like grass blades, making putting on the surface much more accessible and realistic.
4) Rinse off any dirt before you putt
Getting dirt on the synthetic putting green will make it difficult to putt on and can also damage your putting surface. If you see any dirt or mud appear on the surface, rinse it off with water and clean up any stains as soon as possible.
