Why should I choose a synthetic turf lawn or landscape?
Technology and turf construction developments have come along way since the inception of artificial turf back in the 60’s. Back then the fibers were hard, course and abrasive. The results were less than satisfactory. Another complaint back then was that it looked unnatural. Contrary to the turf of the old day’s, today’s synthetic turf products are more functional, innovative, safe and most of all natural looking. The manufacturing process and materials that go into the product as well as new and improved methods of installation have resulted in turf products that look and feel like the real thing.

Does Outdoor Synthetic Surfaces offer any warranties?
Yes. We offer the most comprehensive warranty in the industry: 8-year workmanship warranty against defects, and a 8-year no-fade warranty against sunlight damage. Although we offer 8 years of warranties, Outdoor Synthetic Surfaces stands behind its products 100%. When you see and feel our synthetic turf products you will understand first hand the quality and workmanship that is put into every square foot of turf we manufacture.
What if I have a question while installing a green on the weekend?
Just call! We have someone on call 7 days a week to assist you. If you must leave a message, someone will return your call within 1 hour.
What type of sub-base is required for the installation?
The sub-base preparation is the same as for a brick-paver patio. We recommend crushed stone that is unwashed and is 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch minus. This means the stone is not bigger than 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch. You can find this at your local rock quarry.
Can the effects of Mother Nature harm the green?
No. Our turf is UV- treated when manufacturing the fibers allowing them to withstand all inclement weather conditions.
Do I need special equipment to install a green?
No. Most of the tools needed for an installation are common household items like a shovel, rake, push broom, etc. However, you may need to rent a mechanical plate compactor. These are available at any local tool/equipment rental facility for a nominal cost.
How long does it typically take to install a green?
Small greens, such as a 12′ x 30′ can be installed in one day. Larger greens such as a 24′ x 30′ can be installed in two days. It depends on the weather and how quickly the sub-base is prepared.
How much does a Synthetic Putting Green cost?
When all materials are bought and self installed, a 12′ x 30′ foot green costs about $5.00 per square foot or $1,837.50. Turnkey Installations run about $12 per square foot of green and up. This is comparable in cost to a premium set of golf clubs or half the price of a hot tub.
What is the difference between our Synthetic turf and putt-putt golf turf?
Our turf is specifically manufactured to simulate a golf course green. We achieve this by filling the turf with top dressing such as Black Beauty coal slag. First, the coal slag will control the speed of the green. More slag means faster ball roll, less means slower, and the fibers will not mat down over time. Second, it helps to cushion and hold the ball when chipping to the green. When properly filled, Our Synthetic turf will provide an average Stimpmeter speed of 9 or 10. With this filling process, you can achieve the same true ball roll and holding characteristics as your favorite course green.
Why install a Synthetic Green instead of Real Natural Grass Green?
Installing a real grass green is costly, but its maintenance and upkeep is much more expensive and time consuming. Maintaining a real green requires the purchase of a precision mower, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers etc. You have to learn how to apply the correct amount of chemicals to maintain a healthy green, and it is still not 100% sure that your green will survive. You must also have good climate conditions to keep your green looking healthy. We have heard many golfers say they spend more time maintaining their real grass greens than practicing on them. Installing a real green can become overwhelming for someone who just wants to practice his/her short game. Outdoor Synthetic Surfaces can provide you with a synthetic putting green that will receive your shots as well as any real grass golf course green. Your putting green can be installed to roll at any desired speed.
Can I add contours and undulations to my green?
Yes. You can create the contours and undulations with the sub-base material. The crushed stone is easy to manipulate and will give you the ability to create any contour you need. The green adheres directly to the surface of the sub-base and therefore adheres to the contours and undulations you build in the sub-base.
Will this product hold an approach shot from 100 yards or more?
Absolutely! That is why we offer two products. We have both half-inch turf and 1-inch turf. The true ball roll and putting characteristics are the same for both. The main reason we have the 1-inch turf is to hold shots from a distance of 15 yards or more. If you are in an area that will allow shots of 15 yards or more, you will want the 1-inch turf. For those who just have the ability to chip 15 yards or less, they will want the half-inch turf. Aside from depth, the difference between the half-inch and 1-inch is the amount of coal slag needed. The 1-inch requires twice as much coal slag for holding ability. The more coal slag in the green the better it will hold your approach shots.
