And why Southwest Greens Vancouver (Second Generation Landscapes) is the perfect choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to heavy foot traffic and wear from golf clubs constantly swinging. Artificial turf is a better choice since it has the ability to withstand these activities far more successfully and still look great at the end of the day.

Traditional Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass is finicky. It’s hard to preserve and only looks good with the right conditions. Natural turf will cultivate in a variety of ways in Vancouver from season to season. Certain areas may be thicker, while some other locations are scarce.

Routine Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you’d experience on a golf course, this could require you to mow daily. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Factor in the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you’re looking at a hefty bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds require removal, which most times, is done with unsafe chemicals. This is not a single treatment situation. Herbicides are needed frequently to keep weeds away.


Ants, grubs, weevils — it goes on and on. In traditional grass, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these pests at any given time. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which are not only harmful to the nature, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic turf needs water to appear healthy and green. Merely a couple days of dry weather conditions can have turf appear sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, natural grass tee lines must be watered all the time to look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic turf will grow in various ways in Vancouver from one season to the next. Certain places can be more dense, while other areas are patchy. If you’ve ever played on a natural turf tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be patches of turf missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

Through artificial grass, tee lines will look great all the time. They’ll never require fertilizing, mowing, or watering, hence, tee lines can stay open consistently. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Implementing and replacing synthetic tee lines gives organic turf the much-needed recovery time.

Enhanced Playability

Artificial turf plays well because it has an leveled, predictable surface. You’ll never have to be concerned about the clubface gripping the turf and affecting your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the grass will not become swampy and slippery during heavy rains. Synthetic turf will not get ripped apart and generate divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make easier and less expensive ways to change portions rather than replacing the whole panel or tee line. Using more cost-effective components for the stance area decreases the overall cost of the project.
