If you love playing golf on the weekends or after work, having your very own professional putting green in your backyard is the perfect way to take your game to the next level. So many golfers will tell you the importance of working on your short game, and with your very own putting green in your backyard you can do that for free whenever you want. Additionally, a putting green in your own backyard is a great way to entertain guests during a family BBQ and is a great way to express your own interests and hobbies through landscaping. Here are a few things to consider when you are thinking about getting a backyard custom putting green.
Design Aesthetic For Your Putting Green
The first thing you might want to consider when envisioning your personal putting green is how you will want it to reflect your own personal design aesthetic. Anyone can install a single hole, but with a great team of landscapers, you can make something wholly unique. Some interesting concepts are combining your putting green with other landscaping features, giving it a unique and interesting shape, or even adding features like bunkers to the side of your putting green. While you hopefully will never end up putting into the bunkers, a sand trap is a perfect place to store golf balls after a round of putting.
Size & Shape of Your Custom Putting Green
Logistically you should consider the size and shape of your putting green. Knowing how much space you have to work with is key to the design process. We recommend not using up your entire yard so that you can save space for other landscaping elements in the future. Many homes that have putting greens will also get a firepit or an outdoor patio for entertaining guests. However, even with a small side lawn or front lawn, it is possible to design a unique and beautiful putting green.
Getting Rid Of Your Natural Lawn For Artificial Turf
Another great reason to get a putting green is to finally have a maintenance-free yard. A normal yard requires hours upon hours of maintenance. And a lot of that maintenance can have a negative impact on the environment from pesticides to gas-powered mowers. But with a putting green, you can wave goodbye to unnecessary expenses, hours of outdoor chores, and the negative environmental impacts of upkeeping your yard.
