Putting Green Installation using nails to determine where to cut.

 

 

 

Note: We recommend a minimum of 6" on each side of the seam - allowing ample amount of gluing surface.

By laying out your design on paper you will get a rough idea of the materials you will need. This example shows that there will be a 2ft. fringe on three sides and a 3ft. fringe on the bottom side.

 

Use a piece of yellow or white chalk to draw out your design on the putting green material. We suggest that you make this decision with all parties involved prior to cutting the material. (Professional installers might need their clients present during this process.)

Insert 16d penny box nails 6" to 8" apart. Push them through the material exposing the point on the backside (see photo below). Rollback the putting green surface exposing the nail holes. You can take a red sharpie and transfer the design that is on the surface to the back of the material or just cut along the nail holes using them as a guide. Remember to use  a sharp utility knife to cut out your pattern. Change out your blades frequently.

Layout your rough cut fringe pieces around the entire putting green. Adjust accordingly to allow room for trimming.

If you have small area like a corner that barely reaches we recommend that you cut a larger piece (12"X12") and place it in that area. (see red square)

Using nails to hold the pieces in place on  the entire perimeter (12" on center). NOTE: You will be pulling them back out and resetting them while you sand and brush the area.

Carefully pull back the putting green surface allowing your fringe material to fall below the putting green surface. Get the entire putting green surface on top of all fringe pieces.

Use the putting green edge as a guide and stick 16d penny box nails 6" to 8" apart through the fringe material.

Fold back the putting green surface in the area that you are working on. Then flip the fringe material over exposing the nails holes. Using nail holes as a guide cut all fringe material.

Last step is to glue all seams with an exterior turf adhesive. (see below)

NOTE: You can nail these areas down temporarily while the glue cures. After a clue has cured - remove the nails.

This photo is to simply to show you the process of taking a nail and poking holes at the edge of the putting green through the fringe turf. After you complete this process you will slide the piece of fringe back out from under the putting green. Roll it over and cut along the nails holes - transferring the curved line perfectly.
Build a concrete foundation up halfway (2.5" to 3") around the bottom of the cup. Making sure not to get any concrete under the cup. 
Note: Put drain rock under cups or you can French drain as well. Do not get concrete under cups. Place your ready mix around the lower 1/2 of the cup as a concrete footer.

Turf Adhesive is an eco-friendly, single part, moisture curing, polyurethane adhesive. It is designed specifically for bonding various substrates to the backing of synthetic turf.

Substrates include: Road Base, Decomposed Granite, Concrete, Asphalt, Wood and Foam Padding.

Directions:
1. Application area should be clean and free of oil and debris.
2. Apply Adhesive to seam tape or surface via trowel, spray rig, glue box, or by pouring over the surface area.
3. Allow 5-7 minutes wait time for adhesive to absorb surface and atmospheric moisture.
4. Lay down turf.
5. Wait 10-15 minutes (longer wait time required under moist or humid conditions.)
6. Press seams ensuring contact between both surfaces (weighted roller may be used for field applications.)
7. After 25-35 minutes of cure time, press or roll seams again, ensuring contact between both surfaces.
8. Begin brooming and infilling after 2-3 hours. The Turf Adhesive will be fully cured after 24 hours.
