    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.

    This 5 ft increments covers your unexpected costs that arise from any job.

    Our biggest complaint we receive from customers is they order a green, get it installed, and decide it's too small. They call back to us to order more material. We manufacture the product and we go through what we call "Dye Lots" with fiber. This means there is a color difference from dye lot to dye lot. If a customer bought two greens from two dye lots and tried to join them together there would be a color difference and visually it doesn't look good. We always encourage contractors to order more material for this reason alone.

    I here from contractors every week that that didn't account for extra expenses on a job, that at the end of the day, reduces thier profit margin.

    This benfits the customer to ensure they have enough material and the contractor to cover costs.
