What You Need to Know Before Installing Putting Green Grass on Your Lawn

Adding a new putting green is a great way to make your yard more dynamic. If you don’t feel like you’re getting the most out of your lawn, consider all the ways this installation could improve your residential space.
Many golfers choose to convert their lawns with a putting green because of the endless practice hours it provides and the value this feature adds to their backyard. When you don’t have time to get to the range, you can still practice your short shot.

If you’re on the fence about this decision, here are a couple of important pointers to keep in mind:

The Growing Trend.
More than ever, residential yards are being converted to include putting greens. One of the most important things that potential buyers consider is whether they should be investing in real or artificial grass. Real putting green grass is both more aesthetically appealing and provides the play quality most realistic to professional golf courses. However, it requires a lot of care and maintenance. Many golfers ultimately go with an artificial putting green for home use, so they can spend more time practicing and less time mowing.

Synthetic putting greens may require less upkeep in the long run, but they can be more expensive to install. Your expenses will be front-loaded. Real putting green grass can be cared for with the rest of your lawn and tends to look more natural alongside other yard grass, but the upkeep needed is likely to make this a more expensive option, long-term.
