Decide on the Placement of your Green
out placements in level areas of your property.
- Take a string, garden
hose, or extension cord and lay it in the general area and shape you
desire. The width of our turf is 12 feet so you will need to think
in widths of 12 feet when designing your green (12, 24, or 36 feet
wide) unless you plan on cutting and seaming the rolls (if this is
your intentions please see steps 9-12 first). The turf can later be
cut to any length although it is sold in 5 foot increments. By marking
the area like this you will be able to actually see the size and shape.
- Refer to your diagrams
in your brochure to help determine a size and shape.
- Once you see the size
and shape make sure to practice your golf game a little. You may decide
you need a larger green.
- Use spray paint to mark
the entire outside perimeter of the shape. This marked edge will be
used as a reference point where your sub base material will be placed.
Be sure your green is accessible
from other areas of the yard by chipping and pitching to the marked
