When looking to integrate recreational space into a backyard, there are many choices. For some homeowners with young children, they may want a generic area that can suit multiple sports, like a level rectangular section of artificial turf that can be used to practice football, soccer, badminton, lawn tennis, or baseball. Temporary goals and nets can be introduced for a multi-purpose outdoor space. Artificial grass has the advantage of being low-maintenance and well-drained, maximizing the time spent having fun and minimizing the time spent mowing, weeding, trimming, fertilizing, seeding, and irrigating. For some homeowners, all hobbies and sports are not created equal, and their clear favorite is golf. Whereas a tennis court or badminton court are predictable in size and shape with regulations around the height of the net and the areas inside the court, there are no rules when designing backyard putting greens for the landscaped portion of the home's exterior. Part of the challenge and the great opportunity in every project is to take the existing space, incorporate as much or as little as the homeowner would like to retain, and then create an entirely new dedicated space for the favorite hobby. Artificial grass can follow the natural slopes of a yard, or a gradient can be added. Hazards can be few and far between, or strategically placed to present a challenge for even an experienced golfer. In a game where practice and persistence lead to increased confidence and muscle memory, every opportunity to hone golfing skills is a chance to not only have fun but also to see continual improvement and refinement in technique. Back Nine Greens has completed thousands of projects, transforming one unique space at a time into luxury backyards for golfers and homeowners looking for a more general makeover of their space. The high-quality synthetic turf they use looks appealing and pristine year-round, and can potentially add to the resale value of the home. Artificial grass is a popular choice, particularly in areas that are prone to drought, where there is an increased vigilance around how much water is being used. In addition to not having to irrigate the artificial grass, there is also no need to apply chemicals that could run off into the environment. These could include fertilizers or pesticides which are commonly applied to traditional grass lawns.
