We were recently contracted to help with a problem that has occurred in many parts of the south over the past few years. With the recent flooding and heavy rains many lawns are nothing but mud. Before the flooding was years of drought that killed many grass lawns and now this is followed by flooding. If dogs are let loose out back to run and play and do their business then return inside, that can make for quite a mess.
One homeowner contacted us with a daily mopping habit because her 4 dogs would track in nothing but mud every time they were let out. Both husband and wife are golfers so we come up with a solution that satisfied many of their de
sires. A low maintenance artificial turf lawn that the dogs could play without the mud, a putting green that can hold chip shots and add a great deal of fun to the backyard and finally a beautiful landscape that requires a few minutes of blowing it off to return the backyard to pristine condition.
Artificial turf putting green by IntelliTurf uses sand filled technology that will place 8 pounds of sand per square foot down inside 1 1/4 inch high turf fibers that delivers a surface where dog and children can play all day and when dad gets home at night, his putting surface is championship P.G.A. Tour quality.
IntelliTurf has over 50 types of artificial turf including over 20 choices for your synthetic turf lawn and many are specifically designed for a certain audience or activity. Putting green is the industry term for and artificial turf golf surface but in reality we install a synthetic turf golf green that will hold a golf shot from up to 180 yards away. So not only can you eliminate 3 putts from your game with putting practice, you can put a wedge in your hands in almost any backyard and practice your chipping. If space allows, the hitting of golf shots is the next adventure for the homeowner.
On top of sports applications, dog turf, which is also known as pet turf, helps to eliminate the problems this homeowner had of mopping the floor every time the dogs were let out back. A beautiful new lawn that will add the great game of golf to evenings out back and the elimination of mud in the house. These are the types of projects that will keep IntelliTurf and the artificial turf market growing for years to come.
