Choosing Nylon Putting Greens or Polypropylene Golf Greens

Polypropylene Golf Greens – Nylon Putting Greens

Doug Preston of DP Turf MA gives us his overview on why Polypropylene putting greens are a better choice over nylon.

“I have used both surfaces for outdoor installations and have truly found that the polypropelene is more adaptable to installing.  Practice wise, it offers a more enjoyable surface to chip, pitch and hit shots into. When using the nylon surface and hitting chip or pitch shots the golf ball will bounce and roll out, the polypropelene will stop on a dime. It reacts just like a real green.”

What about the speed are they the same?

“The putting speed of a polypropelene can have a much faster stimp reading compared to a nylon. A nylon surface will be between 9.5- 10 on the stimp meter and a polypropelene will be able to reach 11-12. That is one of the main reasons why some PGA tour players are using our polypropelene surface. The polypropelene surface resembles the speed of the green out on their tour stops.  Overall, through all of my golf experiences, I know the polypropelene putting green looks and reacts more like a real golf green when compared to nylon.”

Spring Tips for Lawn Fertilizing & Watering

DP Turf Tips for Watering and Fertilizing your Lawn

To everybody that has that “great lawn envy”, water and fertilizer are two very important parts of a strong, healthy lawn.  The forsythia plant is starting to bloom its bright, beautiful, yellow flower.  That means it is time to apply your dpturfma_lawnandsprinkler_springcrabgrass preventer/fertilizer application.  This is the first of 5 applications that we use for our fertilizer customers.

The end of April is also a good time to start up your lawn sprinkler system and see what type of damage might have happened over the Winter.  As the system ages, rotors can stop turning and sprays can get clogged.  Water conservation and water bans have become an important consideration for all dfp-turf-irrigation-sprinklers-MA-NHtowns.  This is one reason you should have your system checked.  The other reason is for that strong, healthy lawn.  Proper watering is vital for your lawn to grow and to stay green.
