Benefits of a Backyard Putting Green

Did you know that installing a backyard putting green using artificial turf can benefit you, your family, and your property value? Read on to learn about some of the benefits a putting green can offer.

Improve Your Skill

The greatest benefit of installing a putting green in your yard is to work on improving your golf game. This is especially useful if you want to improve your short game and putting. Putting is an important 40 percent of the game! If you have a busy lifestyle, it can be nearly impossible to find time to work on your short game. With a putting green in your backyard, this isn’t an issue. When you have 15-20 minutes to take a break, you can easily go out in your backyard for a putting session. These backyard sessions will only improve your short game.

With your own green, you have endless amounts of time to go out in the back to work on your swing. No need to drive all the way to the golf course, find parking, and then spend money to play.  The convenience of avoiding these hassles is a true benefit. Having a golf green in your backyard allows you to practice whenever you want!

Improve Health

Being outside on your own putting green is also a great way to take a mental break and reduce stress. Being outdoors in nature, and exercising has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. This is due to a release of endorphins and reduction in cortisol which are chemicals that help to boost happiness and relieve stress. Golfing has been shown to have positive effects on the brain as well. A National Institutes of Health study found that golf contributes to improved focus and attention in individuals who experienced “subjective memory complaints.” It also sharpens your focus and improves your coordination.

Golf Greens Can Increase the Value of Your Home

One great aspect of installing this turf addition to your property is that it can instantly help enhance the value of your home. You can use it as a feature to increase the asking price of your home when it comes time to sell.

A putting green is a unique landscaping feature that will make your house stand out.  This added benefit to your backyard makes a better first impression on a potential buyer and will afford you more money when selling.

Many people are looking for a perfect entertainment option in their backyards.  Having a putting green can add to the entertainment area. Having additional entertainment space also adds to your home’s value. Not only can you use it as putting space, but caps can be put over the hole(s) so that tables and chairs can be placed in this space to add an extra entertainment area. You can put a cover over that area as well and make it useful in providing shade or cover for your entertainment needs.

Cost Savings

Have a putting green can save you money!  With a regular sod lawn, you may need to spend money on lawn maintenance equipment, watering, gas, and other lawn products. Imagine no weeding, fertilizing, or cutting grass. A quality putting green will last for many years and save you money.

Chemical Free = Eco Friendly

Real grass can be a potential health issue when using chemicals to get rid of insects or to keep your lawn treated from weed infestations. Whether you are using fertilizers, or any other chemicals, this can be harmful to your family or pets. With a backyard synthetic putting green, you will not have to worry about any chemicals.

Low Maintenance = More Free Time

With the putting green being made of high-quality athletic turf, there will be little to no maintenance required. This way you can enjoy your time outside and just focus on your golf game. When installing a putting green, you will have a lower water bill as well as not having to worry about mowing. All of this will allow you to have more free time from lawn maintenance.

A natural putting green loses its pristine appearance quickly if you play on it often. It would take intensive care and be very costly to keep a personal green with the same consistent luster. Synthetic turf lasts much longer and costs less in the long run because you will have it for many, many years.

Durability

Putting greens are durable all times of the year. They can be installed in many different climates, even in harsh areas. Your turf will withstand the test of time and be hardy for years to come even with rain and snow. Artificial turf putting greens dry quickly, so you won’t have to worry about water puddling and ruining your practice time. And, it will withstand indentations and divots over time unlike natural turf.
