    When selling a synthetic golf green to a customer, sell in 5 ft. long increments. This will generate you an additional $122.50 to $588.00 profit per job. This can be used to cover insidential costs or go straight to your bottom line profit.

    Here is an example of how it works:
    A customer has a 12' x 32 area he wants to put in a green. You will sell the customer a 12' x 35' green. At $12 a sq. ft. installed price, that is an additional 37 sq. ft. or $444.00 profit you have made on the job.

    This doesn't include the money you can make on landscaping around the green. The photo below shows a $10,000 green around a $50,000 in landscape job that includes plants, trees, block work and rock work around the green.

    Ed Bailey of Ultimate Putting Greens in Atlanta, Georgia just installed a $35,000 putting green around a $100,000 landscape job around the green that another contractor installed. The landscape included plants, trees, walkway, a retaining that wraped around half the green and a water feature.

    This one strategy can be applied to most products you sell to generate more profits.

    How you ask? If you sell water features, sell the pond & liner in 5 ft increments, If you sell brick paver patios, sell in 5 ft increments, If you sell sod, sell in 5 ft. increments. If you sell retaining walls, sell in 5 ft increments. Do the Math. How much more revenue and profit can this strategy make your company per job, per month, and per year.

    Learn every week new tips, strategies, and tactics used by successful contractors how they turned an add-on service into a new division of thier business at our "Insider Secrets" forum: http://www.lawnsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=138

    Almost 1000 Contractors Have Signed Up

    We need only 27 more contractors to call in and register for the FREE Online Training Class
    and we have 1000 that have signed up for the Training​

    I talk to "Forward Thinking" contractors every day that want to separate themselves
    from competitors in thier market. This is one way to do it.

    What does the Landscape Industry say about our synthetic golf greens:
    • Landscape Management Magazine voted synthetic putting greens the #1 niche service idea of the year.
    • Lawn & Landscape Magazine states, "Synthetic putting greens can be a lucrative add-on service for landscape contractors"
    • Turf Magazine says, "selling synthetic golf greens is a way to sustain income and keep crews busy year round"
    Is an hour of your time worth a new
    profit center, revenue stream, customer base, & add-on service?

    What Do You Have To Loose? Except.................
    • A Profit Center - Up To 60%
    • A New Revenue Stream
    • A Simple & Easy Add-On Service
    • Utilizing Existing Equipment & Employees
    • Reach a New Customer Base
    • Up-Sell Current Products & Services
    • Year Round Installations

    I must be blind. I don't see any "insider's secrets forum" anywhere on their site. I'd love to have a forum where I could discuss jobs, bidding, etc. with other contractors who have done this. If it's on that site, you must be hiding it fairly well. Because I've looked over the home page several times now.

    I just can't see this catching on. I mean a homeowner spending 20k to putt on the same green all the time. Very boring IMO.
    If someone is that much of a fanatic I think they know their way to a real couse with a free putting green. All my opinion of course.

    It's caught on fairly well here. Every year we have this thing called the "Street of Dreams" where they build about 10 really high-end million dollar homes. It's a place for builders, landscapers, theater room companies, sports courts companies, interior decorators, etc. to show off their nice high-end products. In this area, most everyone who makes decent money goes every year. It's just the IN thing to do. And every year for the past 4 or 5 years they've had a golf putting green in the back yard on one of the model homes. In 2005, 4 or 5 of the homes came with REALLY NICE big putting greens. It was the rave. Everyone was playing on them, asking about them, etc.

    After the show every year, we start to get requests from our clients for a quote for a new putting green. This year I got more requests than ever before. I have two clients right now waiting for me to learn this stuff so I can install one for them. So I'd say it's catching on.

    It's not something every Joe-Homeowner can afford. That's for sure. But there are plenty of rich people who are drooling over this stuff. If you live in an area where there are affluent homes, this will sell.
