So you’ve joined the growing crowd of golfers who just installed a green in your backyard. Good for you. Now comes the not-so-fun part: green maintenance.
If you’ve opted for the all-natural look and performance that real grass provides, your putting green will need a lot of care. You’ll need to cut that green every other day, as well as cut back on frequent watering, fertilizing, and logging. This requires specialized equipment, such as a lawn mower to cut the grass as short as necessary for a green, an irrigation system, a fertilizer spreader, and a deep-tooth aerator.
