1. Select a location with relatively flat terrain. Use the pressure-treated timbers to create a border for the putting green. Use string-line (or twine and stakes) and level to place the timbers.
4. Compact first layer using the plate compacter. Apply another two-inch layer and compact. Add more stone dust as desired to create contours.
