Putting green and sand traps

I have this project coming up and it will be a first for me. Can anyone tell me how an artificial putting green is installed? as well as the sand traps.

I would put it in for you we have installed over 25 greens in the last 2 years. Their is a lot to it so I don't think you could be talked through it. But I would do it for $28 a sq. ft. plus any incurred expense. min sq. 600. That is about the going rate in your area up here we get about $20 sq. ft. Good luck make sure you put in the right drainage or your green won't make it.

You have to take into effect that you are going to change the slope run off and surface of the ground so when you build your green have it drain off naturally then accomodate that with drainage.

Base, Base, Base the most important thing to installing your green!!!!!!!!!!
Just like a paver base, make sure you put it in deep enough, i think our last 1 we put the base in about 10" looks great to this day, expect for the green shrinkage, now we are replacing it and making it larger going over 1000 square feet this time. Base, Base,Base Stone lots of it.
