Our putting greens do not require the significant and daily maintenance of natural grass putting greens. however, we do recommend occasional maintenance to retain optimal performance standards.
It may take several weeks for your green to mature to its optimum performance level. The green should be rolled each day until desired speed is achieved. In order to maintain softness, the green should be brushed and rolled. Brushing is particularly important because it softens the fibers and levels the infill to encourage a true roll. After brushing, the green must be rolled again in order to set the speed.
Additional rolling will increase the speed of the green.
Over a period of time, the colored top-dressing will begin to settle down into the infill causing the green to lose its deep, rich appearance. This is normal and cannot be avoided, but can be remedied simply by brushing and adding more top-dressing using the same procedures described earlier.
Basic precautions and care will insure that your green will maintain its appearance and optimum performance for many years. These tips are not expensive and do not take a lot of time, but can do a lot to protect your investment for future use.
