artificial grass putting

Installing artificial grass has its many benefits, especially when it comes to putting green for golf. Many people love to play sports like golf, as it is one way to relax and unwind from a hectic life. Sports like golf also provides various benefits such as helping you get active and minimising joint strain, appealing to people of all ages. 

What is a putting green artificial turf?

A putting green turf refers to a low artificial grass pile that allows golf balls to roll true. A putting green turf is made from durable and synthetic fibre materials such as nylon, polyethylene, or polypropylene. An artificial putting green turf is different from the standard natural turf because of its lower pile and thinner surface.
With more and more people across the country installing artificial grass in their lawns due to its benefits, there has also been a sharp increase when it comes to installing golf artificial putting greens. However, why are so many people opting to install artificial putting greens made of artificial grass? Here are some of the benefits of artificial putting greens that makes it a viable option for homeowners.

It helps you save water.

You would need gallons of water to maintain the look of a putting green with a natural lawn. It can be expensive, and using a considerable amount of water is not environmentally friendly. If you’re trying to save money and the environment, one solution to consider is opting for synthetic grass when designing your putting green. 
Artificial grass only needs the occasional light rinsing and maintenance to avoid accumulating dust in the long run. Fake grass will look great and feel great for years with minimal maintenance.

It also helps save you money.

Investing in your own artificial putting green can also help you save money in the long run. Even though there is an initial outlay when installing putting greens with the help of a professional, its cost will be clawed back over time. 

It increases the value of your property and enhances its aesthetic appeal.

Having the aesthetic appeal of a perfectly manicured putting green at home can increase the perceived value of your property, which is helpful if you also have plans of selling it. Putting green is a thing of beauty that you do not need to know how to play golf to appreciate. It is not a polarising home feature that can cause significant concerns for those interested in buying the property.
A putting green is perceived as a luxurious feature that can help increase the value of your home and shorten the period to sell it.

There is no need to worry about mud or waterlogging.

The best real grass golf putting greens can be unplayable during certain times of the year, especially at months when there is a lot of rainfall. However, when you opt to install an artificial golf putting green in your lawn or backyard, there is no need to worry about weather conditions. 
An artificial turf, if installed correctly, will be free-draining. It means rainfall will drain straight through it without sitting on the surface. There would be no more muddy feet and waterlogged greens that would affect your play.

It helps in maintaining and keeping your health in check.

Having easy access to a putting green anytime you want to play can also benefit your health. Practising strokes on a daily basis can help increase your blood flow, and it can also lower your blood pressure. A regular swinging practice also helps your body get a much-needed stretch.
Playing golf also has a positive impact on your cardiovascular health. All the walking you do while playing gold can help decrease the chances of getting various diseases such as stroke, heart failure, and coronary heart disease.

It also helps save you time.

In today’s world, where we are always busy, the amount of time we have during the week for leisure activities is minimal. Currently, you would need to drive around to reach your nearest golf course or driving range to squeeze in a bit of practice. However, this reduces the amount of time available for improving your skills.
If you opt to install a putting green in your yard where you can practise, it can help you maximise your available free time. It only takes you seconds to step out of your back door and onto your putting green so you can practise playing and improve your skills in the long run.

With artificial putting greens, you would only need minimal maintenance.

Artificial grass putting green needs very little maintenance compared to a traditional sod putting green. Especially if you enlist the help of a professional with years of experience in installation, you would only need to worry about little maintenance and enjoy your luxurious putting green at every chance you get.


Choosing to install artificial grass putting green in your yard or lawn can be a fantastic investment in your property. Golfers and non-golfers alike could enjoy its many benefits and have fun playing on their own garden artificial putting greens. There is also no need to waste time worrying about weather conditions when they want to practise their golf skills.
With its various benefits, one can easily see why more homeowners opt to install artificial grass putting green in their yard or lawn. Artificial grass can be used for multiple purposes when it comes to landscaping, residential areas, playgrounds, and sports facilities.

Expert tips for natural-looking artificial grass

Why you should double check your Artificial Turf measurements

When measuring up for artificial grass installation it’s crucial to know exactly how much artificial turf you are going to need for your project. Just imagine being short a few square metres on your project or you have massively over-ordered your artificial turf. Double check your measurements and also ensure you order slightly more artificial turf than you think in case there is miscalculation or errors.

How do you prepare the ground for synthetic grass?

Preparing the base so that it is rubble-free, smooth and flat is essential to the success of your DIY turf-laying project. Skip a step and you risk unwanted lumps and bumps. 

Remove any existing turf and soil including any stones, pebbles and debris. We suggest you dig to around 7.5cm deep.


  1. To prevent any regrowth from weeds and unwanted plants, place a plastic membrane over the entire cleared area. 
  2. Apply a thin layer of crushed stone over the top of the plastic membrane.
  3. Use planks of wood to create a new layer over the top of the crushed stone. 
  4. If you are laying your artificial grass over the top of concrete or paving stones, it’s essential to check that it is level. If not, you will need to use a spirit level and create extra height with additional concrete or other materials. You will also need to make sure that there is adequate drainage close by to handle excess rain and water.
  5. We recommend that you use a foam underlay on the top of the concrete to create a more comfortable feel underfoot. Easy Turf suggests using 5mm of foam underlay on top of concrete and pavers to give some softness.
  6. Use a compactor where necessary to ensure a level and robust finish to your foundations.
How to roll out and peg your synthetic grass

Once you have the foundations in place, it is time to peg out your turf, a crucial step before you permanently fix it into position. Follow these steps to ensure the best results.

Slowly unroll your synthetic turf over the carefully prepared foundations.
Use your nails and/or pegs and place at even intervals along the turf but about 30-40cm from the edge to hold it in place (the space between the nail and the edge of the grass will be held down by the adhesive tape used in step D).
If you are using artificial grass on concrete, paving stone or hard floor, use industrial-strength synthetic turf glue instead of nails. As before, leave a gap of approximately 30-40cm to the edge of the grass to allow for the use of tape.
Add the next strip of artificial grass and use the same principles, either nailing/pegging or glueing in place and leaving the space to allow for taping.
As you lay the consecutive strips, be careful to ensure that the pile of the grass is running in the same direction (if the fibres are pointing in alternate ways you will have an uneven stripe in your grass). If in doubt, use your hand to feel which way the threads are pointing.
Once you have covered all your area with synthetic turf you are ready for the next step. Use your industrial strength tape to connect adjoining grass strips. Apply tape along the entire length of one piece of grass and then ‘connect’ the section next to it by laying that on top of the remaining tape. Flatten and ensure that it is a tight fit without any gaps or unstuck areas.

What is the purpose of sand on artificial grass?
  • The sand helps the ‘roots’ of the synthetic grass to stay upright, regardless of use; this avoids the grass appearing to flatten on high traffic areas. 
  • As the sand helps the grass to remain upright it does create a variation on the angle that they point which resembles the blades of real grass. 
  • Sand helps to prevent a flattening of the blades in high traffic areas.
  • Using the correct type of sand (only use artificial turf white sand) allows for excellent drainage without washing away the sand or soaking up excess water. 
  • The sand remains within the turf and doesn’t rub off on clothing or on kids and pets who choose to roll on the grass.

Can I Lay Fake Grass On Dirt

It’s not advisable to lay fake grass on topsoil or any sort of soil. This will leave you with an uneven finish for your freshly installed artificial grass, and also have weeds slowly grow in over time.

How To Lay Artificial Grass On Sand

Artificial grass cannot be placed only on sand, as you need to use crushed rock to assist with the drainage and ensure that the synthetic grass stays level.

Why use silicon sand with your artificial grass?

Once you’ve laid your artificial grass you have two options in your next steps. You can either leave the grass as is or add sand to make it appear more natural.

Adding sand to the grass can help it appear more natural as it helps keep the grass upright. To add the proper amount of sand ee recommend that you allow for approximately 10-15kg per sqm for coverage. Using a rake or a broom, sprinkle the sand on top of the grass and walk it in to make sure that it falls deep down into the pile and settles at the base. Then, water the lawn to help the sand settle down within the grass.
