Whether you’re designing a backyard putting green or an short course on 5-10 acres, you need to understand the benefits of synthetic turf. To fully understand the advantages you will gain, let’s first take a quick look at what synthetic grass is.
What is synthetic turf?
Artificial grass covers the ground and it is a direct replicate of real, natural grass. It also provides the same function as real grass. You can play golf on a synthetic putting green all year round as well as in all weather conditions. Most importantly, it is designed with extended use in mind.
Why is synthetic turf so popular?
Synthetic turf and artificial lawns have become increasingly popular over the past several years because they are a smart solution for low maintenance landscapes. In addition, for those golf areas that have become extremely worn down from overuse, synthetic turf is a very popular choice. Grass cannot withstand daily play; however, synthetic turf can. Even several years after being used on a daily basis, synthetic turf maintains its resilience.
Synthetic Turf Increases Playing Time
Since synthetic turf can be played on, on a daily basis, it has the added benefit of increasing playing time. There’s absolutely no need to worry about damage to the turf. Season after season, synthetic turf has the ability to remain consistent and uniform. After installation, there’s no need to stay off synthetic turf. In fact, it can be played on almost immediately after it has been installed.
Benefits of Synthetic Turf
When you choose to have synthetic turf installed, you reap the benefit of having to carry out only minimal maintenance. The required maintenance tends to be far less costly than maintaining a golf green made of real grass too. Because synthetic turf maintains its resilience year after year, you can rest assured that it will be aesthetically appealing year round. Another benefit gained is that it has such a natural appearance. Many people won’t even be able to tell that your artificial putting green is made of artificial turf.
No matter the place you’re wanting to install synthetic turf, a synthetic putting green will be well worth the investment. If you’re looking for more information on synthetic grass or short golf course design, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
