Putting is a delicate art, and improperly maintained putting greens can ruin what could otherwise have been an excellent golf game. Putting greens made of natural grass need to be kept up with very frequently, with any repairs being made right away, regular cutting, and constant watering. Even the slightest imperfection on a natural grass putting green can ruin a putt for golfers, making it extremely important that this area is kept in perfect condition at all times. However, natural grass is natural, and nature is rarely perfect, making this task of ideal upkeep very difficult for golf course owners and players alike . Artificial grass provides a natural looking alternative that needs a fraction of the upkeep of natural grass, and this type of grass allows players a perfect uniform surface from which to make their best putts.
Getting that perfect putt takes practice, as any golfer can agree, and when that putt is ruined by poorly maintained or unhealthy grass it can be particularly frustrating. Natural grass is naturally imperfect, and this can lead to situations of otherwise great putts being put at risk by factors beyond human control. It is difficult to maintain a natural grass area to an extent where it is uniform from one place to another, even with the highest upkeep standards, and this lack of flawlessness can make putting difficult. Artificial grass has the benefit of being man-made, which means it can be made as uniform as a person wishes it to be, and this leads to higher quality putting greens that give a golfer the same chance at a great putt no matter where his or her ball should land.
Artificial grass needs only a fraction of the maintenance of natural grass, and the cutting, trimming, watering, and fertilizing required to maintain a natural grass putting green is made obsolete when artificial grasses are installed. Artificial grass does not die when it goes un-watered, it does not grow on its own, and it does not require fertilizers to stay healthy, but it does provide a natural look and feel with added durability.
Artificial grass is made to be significantly more durable than natural grass, and this means that it can withstand heavier wear and tear without the need for repairs to be made. With natural grass, a divot or damaged area, particularly on a putting green, can make for an unpleasant situation, and these damages can be made in natural earth rather easily. Artificial grasses are made of highly sturdy man-made synthetic materials that are built to live through the day to day use the grass is expected to experience, allowing golfers and course owners more time to enjoy the course and less time worrying about damaged areas.
When it comes to drying, artificial grass also has its benefits. After a rainstorm , it can take hours or even days for natural grass to dry out on its own, leaving golfers with soggy putting areas. Artificial grasses are installed with high tech drainage systems that allow them to recover quickly from bouts of rain, allowing the surface are to dry exponentially faster. With high quality natural grass, it is not rare for an area to be completely dry in as a little as an hour after a storm.
