Before you get started, however, we’d like to share some hard-won insights we’ve learned through many years of installing artificial grass putting greens.

The more you know about the process, the better you can plan for it. Keep these tips in mind while you prepare for your putting green installation: 

Measure, Measure, Measure

There’s no such thing as “over measuring” when it comes to artificial grass installation in San Antonio, TX. This is especially true for putting greens. When we’re designing putting greens for clients, we measure twice (three times, and so on) and plan once. That way, there aren’t any surprises on installation day. 

We recommend measuring your:

  • Installation Site
  • Golf Holes
  • Ramps and Mounds
  • Layout and Contours
  • And More

The more precise your measurements, the easier it will be to create a beautiful putting green that plays great

Don’t Skimp On the Materials with Artificial Grass Putting Greens

You don’t need to buy the most expensive materials for your backyard putting green. You do have to ensure that every element of your green is high quality. 

Why? Because backyard putting greens can last up to 10 to 20 years with minimal maintenance. Investing in high-quality materials up front will give you maximum value out of your installation in the long run. 

In contrast, low-quality materials will fail faster, require more maintenance and repair to keep playing great, and may not meet safety standards. 

Get All of Your Tools Ready Before You Begin

The last thing you want is to be half-way done with your installation and realize that you don’t have the right tools. 

We recommend putting together a comprehensive toolkit before you begin. That way, when it’s time to get your hands dirty, you’ll have everything you need. 

Your toolkit should include: 

  • A Utility Knife or Box Cutter
  • A Shovel, Rake, and Tamper
  • A Hammer
  • A Wheelbarrow 
  • Measuring Tape 
  • Tack Strips 
  • Rubber Mallet 
  • Levels
  • And More 

If you’re ever unsure of what tools to include, just let us know. We’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.
