Ground Preperation
It is highly recommended that the ground preparation is done properly or your project will not last long enough for your investment to be fruitful. The ground preparation is vital to the longevity of synthetic surfaces. Every job is different and requires different hurdles to overcome in order to increase your chances of success. There are several different factors that we take into consideration before we install your putting green or lawn.

A few examples are:


1. removal of the existing soil
2. compaction of your subgrade
3. revision of your drainage
4. revision of your sprinkler system to keep the city water off of your synthetic surfaces
5. the addition of root barriers
6. the addition of landscaping borders
7. The addition of retainer or sitting walls
8. Gopher Mesh

Subsurface
Underneath every project lies a base. Never underestimate the importance of a strong base. The base will determine the way your project will look for its entire life. The last thing that you want is for it to change its form and loose the quality surface that was intalled initially. Thus lies the extreme importance for ground preparation, which is to protect the base of your project. The base is made up of materials that compact to 100%. We spend as much time as necessary to perfect the subsurface before we lie the turf on the top. Creating undulation for putting greens and lawn is a true art form. We will never rush any phase of a project, especially this one. We take serious pride in our installations of our base.

Subsurface Materials
Installing the turf is like laying down carpet. It is very important that all of your seams are cut correctly and then bonded with special materials. If this is not done correctly you will see seams all over your project which will take away from the realism of the surface. Each type of turf requires an infill. The putting surfaces require sand and the lawns require a combination of rubber and sand. Most of the turf that comes from the manufacturer needs to be manipulated in order for it to blossom into its most beautiful state. The putting green in particular requires hours of attention in order to get the sand to fall correctly. If this is not done correctly your ball will not roll smooth. There are so many things that you can do wrong if you are not taking the time to make sure that everything is done with perfection in mind. We have to be careful not to give to many secrets away. We would be happy to explain all of this in further detail. Please call our office to set up an appointment.
