If you’re looking for something even more fashionable, we’re an exclusive partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our equipment and tools will have a significant impact on the time and expenditures involved in installing a putting green. Costs can be higher if we can’t easily access your location with larger machinery, because this requires more physical labor. The necessity for extensive grading and other maintenance to prepare the land would also have an influence on the price.

Site Preparation

Site preparation prices aren’t included in the square foot pricing of your grass. This is because certain locations will require existing turf to be removed, while others will not. If you live in a location where grass grows, we’ll need to remove existing grass or soil. If you live in a desert location, the effort required to prep the area for installation will be reduced dramatically.
