Putting Greens and a Putting Green Lawn
your own putting green lawn in your back garden is a simple
DIY project. Maintaining the putting green lawn is more
complicated, ambitious, but possible with our Bermuda Tiffway
, Princess or Med Fine Ultra grass. All these fine grasses
respond well to cutting short. Alternatively
but more expensively is our Med Fine Dwarf.
If your ground preparation has left you with a level lawn, then the task is relatively simple. If your ground is a little uneven then some simple and easy procedures will sort this out. For those that want a putting green in your back garden we have a step-by-step 'Build your own putting green' project. Please inquire for details.
Making a putting green is not about cutting the grass lower. A putting green will need a different type of grass, different soil, different cutting different watering and different feeding.
All putting greens have several things in common.
o Well drained soil
o Level rolled turf
o Fed regularly
o Watered regularly
o Cut regularly
If you are prepared for the effort and want to make part or all of your lawn into a putting green, then our Tiffway, Princess or Med Fine Ultra will fit the bill.
In fact many professional putting greens use this grass type, and this is how to achieve the result.
We provide a step by step bespoke "Putting Green Creation and Maintenance Guide" detailing all the procedures.Making a putting lawn in 7 easy steps...
Choice of Putting Green Grass

Our Med Fine Dwarf is a popular choice for golf grass at home. It is fast growing and responds well to being mowed short. It is however coarser than other types of grasses that are used for putting greens, but in golfing terms a little topspin will overcome this drawback.
We now have Med Fine Ultra, Med Fine Dwarf, Tifway, Princess and Bent, all of which are perfect for a putting green. Low growing and compact.
To speed up the lawn making process, if you are not dedicated, forget seed. Use plugs and plant at 3" intervals. This will give you something to use in about a month or two.
