Whether you’re a golfer wanting to put in a putting green for practice, or an eco-minded homeowner seeking to cut down on lawn water usage, Get a Putting Green has the artificial surface for you.

The La Jolla Shores-based company will gladly visit your residence to answer questions surrounding artificial grass for yards.

“Artificial turf is very realistic these days: It’s come a long way,” said company owner Edward Sides. “It’s aesthetically pleasing and a great, long-term investment that lasts up to 10 years or longer for anyone that wants to improve their house. People often look at it and take a double-take, not even realizing it is synthetic.”

Synthetic turf has obvious appeal for golfers, but is equally valuable in creating more attractive, livable, useable, low-maintenance outdoor space at a reasonable cost.

The charge for synthetic turfing is typically $10 to $12 a square foot, depending on the type of material used.

“We’re more than happy to go out and give an estimate after we’ve looked at what they have,” said Sides.

Sides, who has always been interested in landscaping, said he got into the artificial turf business after realizing, “We all have to do our part to contribute to more eco-thinking. New at playing golf I figured, ‘What better way to get involved?’ ”

Besides realistic appearance and durability, Sides said artificial turf offers benefits other than not having to water it.

“It saves on maintenance and gives them a place to have fun and use their backyard,” he said. “You also don’t have to have people come over and mow it using gasoline and making noise. It’s the future.”
