Capitol Auto Group
Aqua Greens constructed a custom Island Green for Capitol Auto Group in Salem, Oregon.
The custom-built 30′ x 35′ floating Island Green features 2 sand bunkers. It is used at a pond behind Capital Auto Group’s showroom in Salem, Oregon to promote their auto sales.
The Island Green was built in Aqua Green’s New Hampshire shop, in 3 pieces for transport. The sections were loaded on a flatbed truck and driven to Salem, Oregon. Once unloaded and delivered to the pond, the 3 sections of the island green were fitted up to one another and bolted together from the underside. Over 200 bolts were used to hold everything securely into position.
Once the turf was installed, workers slowly topdressed it with thin layers of sand that get broomed into the fabric. The layers of sand are repeatedly applied and broomed into the turf until the fabric of the turf is totally packed. “Infilling” the turf for this island green took 40 man hours. Artificial turf that is properly infilled resembles the performance of landing a golf ball on a green at a well maintained golf course. The completed Island Green has proved to be a valuable tool for increasing Capitol Auto Group’s business.
