You will notice small ridges caused from the plate compactor, on your
finalized compacted base. These ridges must be removed. The putting
green turf will fit like glove to your base so you want the base to
be as smooth as possible.
- Use the bottom of a shovel or hand tamp to flatten the ridges.
- Use the drop spreader to distribute the commercial grade medium
sand over the entire base. A 50 pound bag of sand will cover a 12 x
- Use your medium bristle push broom to lightly sweep the sand and
any loose gravel off your base. This will fill in any cracks and crevasses
and give you a super smooth base.
If using the standard 12 ft. wide measurement for your green
then you may omit steps 9-12.
