    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.

    i'd rather sell them in 10' or even 100' increments... :)

    I was reading your about your product, seems nicely packaged. I'd love to put one in sometime to see what its all about. One of my customers has a green someone else installed a number of years ago, its in really sad shape. They used mason sand for a base and homedepot special green outdoor carpet for the putting surface! I was surprised to see real cups and flags though.
