Putting Green Installation

Pro Putting Green In Caversham, Berkshire

We installed a great looking putting green to transform this small area into something the ticked all the customers requirements.

we started off with the existing lawn area which was covered with grass but did not grow well due to the trees close by.  We made quick work of removing all of the old ground to prepare for the base installation.

Once all the lawn was removed we got to work by installing the scalping base and also some timber framing and concrete plinth work.  This helped give a strong edge for the lawn to be fixed to. Once the scalping base was laid and leveled we discussed with the client where the golf holes were being put.  Once we agreed on the area these were installed and concreted into place to make sure they didn’t more.  Once secured we compacted the scalpings to a strong level area.

After the above steps have been completed, the next thing to do is install a very thing layer of sharp sand to take out any imperfections on the base.  The layer is a few millimeters thick to make sure nothing dips later on.  once leveled we compact and then blend the area to the correct falls and levels.

Once level we then install a Geotextile membrane layer and secure down before adding the putting green artificial grass into place.  This is rolled out and positioned correctly before any cuts are done.
Once the lawn has been pulled into the correct position cutting began along the edges until the lawn fits in snug.
During the install we had some lawn left over from a previous job so after talks with the customer we installed a small area of rough along the fence to give the lawn a more authentic look and feel which we felt was the best thing to be done.
We got to work cutting the rough into place adding a small curve to not make it all square.  After the cutting was done we roll out the jointing tape and start to glue all the joints down making sure there is none showing.
After this step it was down to spreading kiln dry sand over the green and brushing up lightly with out machine to work the sand into the pile of both grasses.

We feel this was a superb and fun install done by Get The Lawn which made a huge transformation on this customers garden space. The team as always pulled together to complete a great install.
