This week’s featured application comes from Pioneer Synthetic Turf, also known as Pioneer Golf, Inc, which is owned by Keith Thykeson (PGA) and Chris Zeilinger, and specializes in synthetic turf applications.
Pioneer Synthetic Turf installed a putting green prior to Memorial Day for a military veteran. The area was natural grass, and the client just recently started playing golf. After a few lessons, he asked his professional about possibly having a putting green installed at his home, and since his pro knew Keith through his relationship as a PGA professional, he gave him the referral. The area they installed was also a trouble spot for the client’s landscape, so he was able to kill two birds with one stone and get a great looking lawn that requires very little maintenance.
NP50 putting surface with SoftLawn® Bluegrass Blend perimeter fringe was used. Size of project was approximately 400′ SF. SoftLawn® Bluegrass Blend is an excellent landscape product, with a thatch layer for added body, reducing the amount of infill needed. The four color blend of this product provides an authentic look and feel that truly resembles a natural lawn. Bluegrass Blend can be used for landscapes, putting green fringes, playgrounds and pet areas.
