It was hard and easy. She wanted the pool,I didnt.
She wanted to go what I call extreme with the build of the yard.
I just said,If you want The pool and this extravagant yard,I Want it to incorporate a putting green.She said Ok.

Which part of the build do you want to know about?

Didnt let the contractor sub it out.We went direct with the green.Sw Greens waasnt an option. I didnt want a sand filled surface.I tried to get Augusta grass and greens to do it,Except they didnt want to travel 2 hrs for the job and didnt come up with a good design. We choose synlawn's non sand filled product.

Putting is fine.Chipping is fine.Pitching isnt that hot.Doesnt react as well as I hope it would,but I knew the only way to get it to do that was to do the sand filled green.I am asking , if we add a touch of sand,if it would help out,but I dont want too much cause the speed might get to quick.Need to get a stimpmeter and test the speed of it.
When I will practice pitching ,I'll just use my chipping net and work on distance control and accuracy.

It looks like sand underneath?  When you say "sand filled" do you mean adding sand on top of the surface ?  

Also - is it flat or do you have any contours?

Looks great, by the way!

With Sand filled greens , the fibers are about 2 inches tall.The only way to get it to stand up is to add sand.The non sand fill fibers are approx 1/2 tall. My green isnt completely flat,It does have some contours.You can see some of the contours in the pics.

I guess playing in the desert you don't need much practice hitting out of sand!
