backyard-putting-greenTired of having to leave the comfort of your own home to practice your golf swing? Want to increase the value of your home while adding a unique feature that nobody else has? Then you need to build yourself a putting green in your backyard! First off, we recommend that you use synthetic turf for this project.

Once the entire space is dug out, you are going to want to line the bottom of it with gravel and stone dust to allow for proper drainage so that the putting green doesn’t become over saturated from any rain or snow. The final thing that needs to be dug out is the space where your holes will go. Using a small shovel, dig out the space for the holes and insert the cups using a fast drying concrete to glue them in
