3 easy steps to building a backyard putting green
The first step is easy but the most important. You need to find an area that is large enough but also flat enough. We recommend no more than a 3% slope on any part of the are where the green will be. This ensures a great surface for putting but also makes it easier to build and so the foundation will stay for years to come.
After you find and measure the perfect area of your backyard for your putting green, its time to find the right backyard putting green kit for you. Simply visit https://golf-anytime.com/products/golf-putting-greens/diy-backyard-putting-greens to find the perfect size and shape putting green for your budget.
If your backyard area isn’t flat enough you may need to use compacted stone and sand to level out a certain area. You will want to make sure this area is well compacted so your green doesn’t move after its built. After this is completed lay out your geo textile fabric (included).
After you have found the perfect area and leveled it out with gravel and sand (if needed), its time to piece together the base (included). Make sure you take a good luck at your layout as the turf will need to be laid out on top of the base. The holes need to be in the correct spots as well as the outer edge.
After all pieces are snapped together it is time to rollout your turf and line up the holes. Once the holes are lined up perfectly you can begin laying out the fringe turf around the inside edge. Fridge turf is also included. Once your fringe turf is laid out its time to staple it in place to be sure it lasts for years to come.
Once the fringe is laid out and stapled in place, its time to install the cups and flags and start working on your putting! Now that you have your own Backyard putting green you can practice GolfAnytime!
