What is putting green carpet, and how is it different than an artificial turf putting green?
Putting green carpet has been installed in a variety of places including offices, homes, recreational centers and more. Most of us are familiar with the putting green carpet that we see at mini-golf facilities. They can be crafted into different slopes as well as manipulated for a variety of fun uses. At Artificial Turf Express, we’re frequently asked questions about installing artificial grass putting greens. We have experience with two specific types of putting green turf, our low-infill product and our pro putting green product.
There are many things to know about artificial grass blade shapes. The shapes will definitely influence your turf’s durability, sheen, and softness. People generally want their turf to be durable, although some products are more appropriate for high traffic areas. For example, many peoples are turned off by turf that looks too shiny. The sheen of a turf product is generally influenced by its blade width. Some people are looking for turf specifically for landscaping purposes, such as our Natural Fescue product. But in order to understand blade types, we should look at certain products, such as our W Fescue Pro.

Bocce Ball on Synthetic Turf: Why people are choosing it
As a sport, Bocce Ball’s origins trace back to Italy. It goes all the way back to ancient Rome, and remains common within the global Italian community. Bocce ball is usually done on a standard lawn. Lately, people have began to play bocce ball on synthetic turf because it offers several advantages. Simply put, playing bocce ball on turf is far easier than natural grass.
One of the reasons for the popularity of bocce ball on synthetic turf is its low maintenance time. Bocce ball usually requires a well-manicured lawn, and because of this, turf is the best choice. Maintaining a natural lawn is expensive, resource draining, and time-consuming. Another reason that artificial turf is preferred to natural lawn for bocce is its surface consistency. Regular grass lawns can be problematic because the surface is rarely flat, which prevents the ball from rolling smoothly.
Jessica Calefati recently reported that homeowners associations can no longer fine residents who fail to water their lawns during droughts under legislation sponsored by a San Jose lawmaker.
Reports earlier this year that a San Lorenzo association threatened in writing to retaliate against a man with a burned lawn inspired Assembly Bill 2100. But reports of those threats — the focus of at least one television news story — might have been inaccurate.
Synthetic turf, playground, landscape, and other recreational surfaces are installed at hotels, office buildings, shopping malls, traffic islands, apartments and condominiums, patios, sun decks, terraces, swimming pools, golf courses, golf tees and putting greens, etc. A good appearance and long term durability are required by these installations. Additionally, synthetic turf is also increasingly being used instead of natural grass, for both water conservation purposes and because of concerns about pesticides and some fertilizers used for natural grass.
