    A little project we worked on this past week. I actually really enjoyed doing this putting green and the homeowner though it turned out sweet. 550 square feet, wish it was in my backyard

    how hard is it to install something like that?
    What materials are invloved and tools?
    and what is the average price per sq ft.

    Thanks and it looks outstanding

    Installation wasnt bad. Layed a base with crushed limestone, added a few contours. Rolled out the carpet, seamed it together, brushed in some infill, cut the holes, seeded around it. Took 2 days with me and another guy. I charged $20 a sq. ft, found out later I was probably to high and that the average is around $12 -$13. I did make some pretty good money on this job. I Spent just under 3K in materials, and another $300 in labor, so I was 7K ahead at the end of a few days worth of work, cant beat that.

    So this is real grass right? Or "Carpet" What is the carpet you speak of?

    Got it. I'm all for semi-maintenece free putting greens, but Your name is ProMower, which would imply your all about real grass. Looks nice anyway. Synthetic and real grass grow right into each other? Any chance real grass could come up throw the "carpet"?
