Preparing the site: Prepare base according to geographic location; north of the freeze line will require a deeper base (up to 4”) than south of the freeze line (2-4 in”).

BASE:
Scrape clean and kill all existing grass and remove any topsoil that could germinate seeds; If you have sod, remove 2-4 inches of existing sod and/or soil. If necessary remove any old shrubs and bring level of yard up so the water will drain away from the foundation. If desired, add French drains below the top base if you want to re-direct any water that drains through your turf. If you already have a sprinkler system, either cap it or leave intact. Leaving it intact will make it easy and convenient to wash your lawn for whatever purpose—be it to cool it down or rinse … Read more »

Understanding the different options you have in choosing a putting surface

Posted & filed under Installation Instructions.

Although it might be a little confusing, here is the skinny on choosing your putting green surface. There are 2 basic options available: sand filled and non-sand filled greens. Both surfaces can be installed on a compacted aggregate base. The heavy sand infill greens will hold a ball from a longer distance; the non-infill products will not hold a ball from more than 30 feet.
