Home putting greens are a way to bring a touch of sport and play to your back garden. Whether you’re a passionate golfer wanting a dedicated place to practice from home, or you’re simply seeking a bit of added fun for your garden, an artificial putting green can be the answer.
But is a putting green right for you and your home? As a place for putting practice, family bonding and mental wellbeing, in this article we’ll take you through the key benefits of a home putting green – and how to go about creating one for yourself.
How to Create a Home Putting Green
The key to creating your own home putting green is to ensure that the design is tailored to you. This means deciding on the layout and the number of holes – whether that’s multiple holes or just a single one. You can also customise the rises and falls of the green, to echo the real-life challenges of an actual golf course – giving you as much or as little of a challenge as you desire.
The bespoke design and installation of your home putting green should be carried out by a professional company. Easigrass are the UK’s leading supplier of authentic artificial grass, and supply premier grass that mimics the look and feel of a professional putting green. Our team will guide you through your options, and will lay the grass to your exact specifications to create a customised putting green that can be enjoyed almost immediately after laying.
7 Benefits of a Home Putting Green
Before you dive in and get started creating your artificial putting green, here are some key benefits you will enjoy.
Leisure & sociability
Get family and friends bonding over a relaxed game of golf – right in the back garden. Anyone can enjoy a home putting green, from the seasoned golfers all the way to the little ones.
Designed to suit you
Whether you’re seeking a complex, multi-hole green or a simple hole-in-one design, put your very own stamp on your home putting green by having it tailored to your practice and leisure needs.
A putting green on your very own doorstep allows you to practice your swing from the comfort of home. This is especially convenient for those with mobility issues, people who are located far from their local golf club, or simply those who fancy getting in ten minutes of daily putting practice in their back garden on your own schedule – without having to make any trips.
