Are you looking for a backyard putting green?

Wondering how much of an investment you’ll need?

Here are some of the elements that influence the expense of synthetic grass.

* Factors such as project size, style, project access, and location create price swings and may cause the price to vary from the norm*

Type of Green

The cost of a backyard putting green fluctuates depending on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is necessary to construct it. Our designers and dealers have extensive training and experience to create the best design for you.

Site Accessibility

The accessibility of the site to our tools and materials will have a significant effect on the duration and costs of installing a putting green. Costs can increase if we cannot reach your area easily with larger equipment, as this requires more hands-on labor. The need for significant grading and other landscaping to prepare the land will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Install rates vary as a result of site preparation. This is due to the fact that some sites will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you reside in a region where grass grows, we’ll need to remove preexisting greens or soil. If you reside in a desert area, preparing the place for the installation will be much easier.
