How can you build home putting greens using artificial turf?

So, you need to improve your golf game, but don’t have the time to head to the course for practice. Solution: Build home putting greens in your backyard! Building your own putting green will certainly save you time, but think about the money you will be saving as well.

Start by creating your plan. Locate the perfect area in your yard, away from children’s play areas and away from the pets. Take the necessary time to research how to build it and get your plans drawn out on paper.

Locate and order the materials you will need. While the expert turf guys at Modern Turf don’t advise using ‘live’ greens for your practice green, they strongly recommend using artificial turf. Besides, if time is an issue for you, you don’t want to have to spend that time maintaining your greens, when you could be using it to shave strokes off your short game.

Clear the area of all debris before you begin to build your putting green. Remove any rocks, roots and weeds. Make sure the area allows for proper drainage to prevent water build up and you’re set to begin building.
