Here’s a quick glance at how our artificial grass and putting green installation process works:

A foundation of crushed aggregate, which, unlike concrete, can be dampened and molded to form protection against breaks and undulations.

Next, we install a minimum of a 1/4 inch cushion pad that helps ball roll and shot absorption, then comes our 1 1/8 inch advanced polypropylene turf material that is used to simulate the vivid green color, softness, and playability of real grass.

The turf is then stuffed with a mixture of fine-coated silica sand to give it the impression of natural grass.
