Install of the Month: Natural Tech

Artificial Grass Transforms Backyard Into Putting Paradise

Artificial grass offers more than just money-saving practicality; it also offers homeowners versatile design possibilities that will transform any home into an oasis. One homeowner in Granite Bay turned to artificial grass because they were searching for a background landscaping solution that offered a relaxing ambiance. The homeowner, an avid golfer, wanted to relax in his yard at night and putt around on a professional-grade putting green. That’s why this client recently sought out Natural Tech for this outstanding backyard putting green installation.

Natural Tech recently installed 3,500 square feet of Sure Putt and Diamond Pro Fescue in a home in Granite Bay, CA. Sure Putt features a dual coloring of field green and forest green, and it has a pile height of 0.75 inches. With a 45-ounce face weight, it is ideal for residential or professional putting green installations. Diamond Pro Fescue, used for the fringe, has dual field green and olive green blade tones with brown thatch, and it has a pile height of 1.875 inches. With a 75-ounce face weight, it is ideal for moderate to heavy foot traffic.

Natural Tech accepted this project because they knew that it would pose an exciting challenge for them. The variation in elevation presented a particular challenge when it came to matching seams, but Natural Tech was able to achieve a flawless installation nonetheless. They used Sure Putt turf, in part, because it’s easy to work with and manipulate during installation. The experts at Natural Tech were able to pin the turf, stretch it into place, glue the panels together, and pull the pins to create a seamless appearance despite the hilly terrain.
