Is TrueTurf expensive?
A budget is an integral part of any project. TrueTurf offers exceptional
value. Let us work with you to complete your TrueTurf green within the constraints
of your budget.
How long does installation take?
The installation of a green normally takes about one week of actual
For the Original Putting Green, first we lay out the green, excavate, set concrete forms, establish the contour and cup
locations, and then place the concrete. While the concrete cures we complete any related
work, i.e. landscaping. We then install the putting surface, and you're ready for years of
true putting enjoyment.
What about my yard during
We take whatever measures are required to protect your property during construction. We
advise you of various options to that end. Some options may increase the cost of getting
materials to the site, but still be the better choice with regard to protecting your yard.
Over the years we have worked on many beautiful properties. We appreciate the care and
expense invested to design, build, and maintain them. We take the time to determine the
best way to get the green built with minimal disruption.
Why use concrete?
Concrete allows us to build a better putting green. One of our chief concerns is
durability, and steel reinforced concrete meets that goal. On a TrueTurf
Original Putting Green,
the cups stay perfect, the undulation is fixed, and the turf never moves. The result is
years of true putting enjoyment.
Why use steel in the concrete?
Using steel reinforced concrete is important. Our normal concrete specification is four
inches of 3,500-psi concrete installed over a sub-base of crushed stone or sand. We use
half-inch (#4) steel rebar 24" on center each way as reinforcement. When the two
products are properly integrated they create a much stronger and more durable support
structure than either alone.
Why use crushed stone at all?
One purpose of the sub-base material is to provide custom undulation of the putting green.
In colder climates, where groundwater can find its way under concrete and freeze, we use
several inches of crushed stone. This allows water to freeze within the gravel without
heaving the concrete. Thus, the concrete can survive repeated freeze-thaw cycles without
What about drainage?
Site evaluation and attention to detail with regard to drainage are important steps in
building a putting green. We investigate and address existing landscape drainage issues
before construction starts. Later, we even make sure the cups drain properly.
Can I chip to my green?
A TrueTurf Original Putting Green is the best synthetic putting surface
available, however, it will also accept short chip shots.
Where sufficient space is
available for a short golf game practice green, we recommend the TrueTurf Short
Game Green, designed to accept higher energy chip, pitch and approach shots.
