When installing a long-lasting high-quality bowling green there is a number of steps that can be taken in order to ensure the best outcome. It is key that the surface is smooth and level which is why excavation is often one of the first steps in the installation process. After the site has been excavated and the lower levels of soil have been levelled. After this, drainage solutions will be installed and further levelling will take place before the surface material of either natural or synthetic grass is added.

Choosing a well-suited space for installation is key to the success of the project. A bowling green should be installed on a flat, rectangular area typically between 31 and 40 metres. Another important consideration is whether there is a pre-existing building that can be used as a clubhouse. As many people choose bowling as a social sport this is key to the success of the project. If there is a building which can serve as a clubhouse already on-site this can save significant costs in starting a bowling club.
A significant decision when installing a bowling green is choosing between natural and synthetic grass. There can be some benefits to choosing synthetic grass in terms of reducing the short-term costs of maintenance. However, many bowls clubs favour natural grass for a more authentic bowls experience.
Once a bowling green has been installed, regular maintenance is important to ensure that the green remains in good condition. The maintenance requirements for a bowling green will differ depending on whether natural or synthetic grass is used with regular mowing required for natural grass bowling greens. Typically, a specialist mower will be used to achieve the surface required for high-quality bowling greens.
In many instances, where there is an existing green, some cost-effective refurbishment steps can be taken to return the green to its original condition. Whether you require the surface of a bowling green replaced or just plan to upgrade additional components such as bowls score boards it is important to work with a specialist provider of sports construction products and services.
