Yes, Southwest Greens' backyard putting greens are made to withstand many weather conditions, meaning they are ideal for many climates. Our putting green turf is UV resistant and designed to withstand extended exposure to sunlight, rain, and other environmental elements. You do not have to cover it with a tarp during the Edmonton winter months (snow). Even if covered, a professional maintenance would be recommended after the last of the snow melts, typically early spring.

Maintaining your backyard putting green is effortless and requires minimal effort. Regular brushing to prevent matting to the fringe, occasional rinsing with water to get rid of debris, and keeping the surface free from leaves and other organic debris are generally all that's needed to keep your putting green in ideal condition.
