Make Your Own Putting Green

Making your own backyard putting green isn't as hard as you may think it is. It's always a very enjoyable past time. Believe it or not, it is possible to make your very own private putting green in your yard.

A regular PGA tour putting green can cost upwards of $50,000 to make, but luckily for you, it won't cost you anywhere near that price, but even for a good looking, well surfaced (bent grass) backyard golfing green, done properly, it can set you back up to $1000 or more.

Maintaining a putting green isn't all that easy as well, but it is fun. You cannot use a standard mower to mow a putting green. You need the right type. You need to cut your grass at least twice a week, if not three times a week.

You also have to irrigate, fertilize, fungicide, herbicide, pesticide and aerate often.

Just because you need a special mower, doesn't mean you can't have your own putting green. In fact, you can get the mowers you need for under $300 in total. You will need to buy a reel type mower that can cut and roll your green at a height of 3/16 of an inch.

Go into any mower shop and ask them what type of push mower will do that job for you.
