Installing artificial putting greens typically costs more than a regular artificial grass installation. This is due to an increased workload during leveling, grading, cutting, and seaming. Not to mention the expertise that goes into creating a custom and challenging green that matches each client's game play. Keep reading below to learn more about the contributing factors that will affect the overall price of backyard putting greens in Malibu

Putting Green Project Size

As with any artificial grass project, the rate per sq. ft. for putting green installation will be higher for small areas. You'll find that projects less than 200 sq. ft. will come at a much higher rate per sq. ft. than those that are 1,000+. This is because regardless of project size there are many fixed costs for backyard turf contractors. Whether they're installing a massive community putting green or a small backyard green the cost of hauling, delivery, dumpsters, road base, and other materials all remain the same. To remain profitable on small projects, they must raise the cost to help cover fixed costs.

Project Accessibility 

The price of putting green installation will also vary depending on how easy the project location is to access. There are many heavy materials and equipment required to execute a custom backyard putting green correctly. Elevation, long distance hauling, and fencing that obstructs accessibility will all raise the cost of putting green installation.  

Putting Green Materials Chosen

The quality of material chosen will also play a role in the cost of your outdoor putting green. You can choose from both poly and nylon material, each with their own benefit. There are also many different heights and textures to choose from that can affect game play. In most cases, nylon putting greens will cost more because the material offers extreme durability. Opting for premium sand infill or heavy duty edging will also result in the project price rising. 

Backyard Putting Green Customization Level

This won't come as a surprise, but customization level will have a major pull on the cost of synthetic putting greens. Advanced players often prefer to incorporate additional customizations within their synthetic green to keep the game fun and challenge themselves. Creating hills and undulations, adding obstacles, or installing sand bunkers will raise the price. To save a bit, you can instead buy removable obstacles online to use during gameplay.
