For many golf lovers, the convenience of being able to practice your short game in the comfort of your backyard is something that you really can’t beat. That’s why back yard putting greens from Perfect Green USA has become so popular. As with a putting green that you’d find and the finest country clubs in America, it’s important to have a high-quality turf that can stand up to the elements all year round. It’s also important to care for your artificial grass putting greens. So we’ve made a simple, easy to follow, guide for caring, and maintaining your backyard putting greens.
Easy to Care For, Rain or Shine
We often get asked about how artificial grass putting greens hold up in the rain (and whether or not you should allow them to get wet). The short answer is that your turf putting green will be just fine in the rain. Putting greens are made with an incredibly durable plastic material that allows it to hold up against all of the elements— hot and cold. So don’t worry about your putting green getting rained on, this won’t affect the way that you care for your artificial grass putting greens.
Get the Right Tools for the Job
Before you start cleaning your synthetic grass putting greens, it’s important to have the right tools for the job! In order to do the best job, you will need a rake, a brush (a rubber brush or a broom works), a leaf blower, and a yard hose!
Clear Your Putting Green of Any Debris
The first step is to clear off any and all debris from your putting green. This is where the rake or leaf blower comes in handy. Make sure that you clear of every last leaf, piece of trash, or rock.
Word to the wise, if you use a metal toothed rake, be careful not to snag the grass. This can cause unsightly tears in the grass.
You may need to pick up pieces that get caught on the synthetic turf grass blades with your hand as they can be a little tricky to remove.
Hose That Bad Boy Off
Once you have cleared off any trash, rocks, or leaves from your putting green, all you need to do it give your turf a good rinse. There’s no need to use any cleaning agents or soaps.
Give Your Grass a Good Fluff
You may notice that after excessive use, your artificial grass can look a little flat. That’s nothing to fret though. Now that your putting green has been hosed off, you can take the rubber brush and give your putting green a good fluff. Voila! As good as new!
