Golf Putting Garden

Putting is one of the most important skills in golf because it has a dramatic impact on your score.  To be a successful putter takes a consistent stroke, good posture, balance, touch, and confidence. 

There are no strict putting rules; every player has their own unique style.  To be great, you need to find one that works for you, enabling you to deliver a smooth and steadfast stroke every time.  Your own artificial grass putting green like the one we installed at this property in Harlow, Essex (pictured) will help you considerably.

Tiger Woods is considered one of the sport’s best putters.  Since the age of 4, he has worked painstakingly hard to develop the skill.  He remembers one of the most important things his father taught him was to swing back and through at the same speed, describing this as the key to a smooth stroke.  Last year Woods took advice from putting legend Steve Striker who gave him some pointers that would improve his technique.  Striker’s advice was to slightly weaken his left-hand grip.  This worked wonders, resulting in Tiger’s victory at the WGC Cadillac Championship, Doral.   

 “Putting is like wisdom. Partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience.” – Arnold Palmer

If you want to be a great putter – practice, practice, practice.  First, analyse where you’re going wrong – if distance control is the problem then use markers to practice hitting the ball at the correct speed.  It helps to experiment with different techniques and try-out other player’s styles.  See what works for you…the options are endless – ultimately, it’s a matter of personal preference. 

Your own artificial grass golf garden will help you get there in no time.

Artificial grass has many uses.  It is preferable to real turf in many applications due to its durability, and to avoid mud.  Here are some details of an interesting install we carried out at a large property in Mountnessing, near Brentwood.

Artificial lawn ipool grasss ideal for swimming pool and spa surrounds.  Firstly, you avoid the mud which gets into the water, as well as the house.  It doesn’t require any maintenance, yet always looks immaculate.  Plus, it’s not as slippery as other surfaces so much safer for the kids.  Here, you can see we used black grass which looks striking in this contemporary outdoor area.  It blends with the black tiles on the face of the building and the black aluminium patio door profiles, creating a cool space to relax.

The extensive grouartificial grass golfnds at the property gave the owners space to splurge on a little extra luxury.  We turfed a par 3 golf hole and tee-off, using a non-sand filled grass, gluing it down with contact adhesive.  The owners can practice at leisure, come rain or shine.  Using fake grass means none of the associated wear and tear problems of natural turf.  Plus it will always look neat without weeding, trimming or edging.  The serious golfer can improve their handicap at home, or just enjoy a fun game with the family.

If you are tired of pool surround maintenance, we can offer you an affordable solution.  If you’re a golfer who wishes there was a way you could get more practice in, why not contact us for a quote?
