Backyard Putting Greens: Practice right outside your door!

backyard putting green downWhen you think about inviting friends and family over for a get together, visit, cookout or family fun day, you may think of family activities to participate in indoors, like board games, charades, or a pool table. Outside, you might think about volleyball, badminton or playing catch, but there’s not many activities as fun as having your own backyard putting green.

When you hire a professional landscaping company to create and install your backyard putting green there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. Here are some do’s and don’ts that your landscaper should know:

  1. Do have your landscaper place it near the house - when you feel like getting outside and putting around on your personal green, you’re more likely to use it if it’s closer to your house. That’s probably also where your grill, patio or any other social areas you use outside will be, so include it in the area outdoors where you spend the most time.
  2. Don’t place it too close to where you park the cars and keep it away from the windows of the house.
    For obvious reasons, golf balls and glass don’t mix well. While you may plan on putting and making it a rule for your green to be used for putting only, chip shots are inevitable even if they’re not intentional, and you’re not going to have much fun if you’re worried about breaking windows on the house or surrounding cars.
  3. Do make it a fun challenge and make it your own
    A one-hole putting green can lose it’s appeal and get boring fast. You’ll want to be original in your design so you and your friends and family can use it for years. Add some curves and undulation, a sand pit and some mounds to keep it fun and challenging. You can even personalize it further with your own monogrammed flags, a name for your “course” and personalized signs.
  4. Don’t use live grass or living turf
    With a backyard putting green, it's best to create it with artificial turf. Your sand pits, mounds and any interesting shapes you choose to include are difficult to water and effectively mow if you are using live turf grass. Artificial turf is also created with the best synthetic material that makes a perfect surface for putting and is nearly completely maintenance free. It survives any element (cold or hot temperatures, rain, sleet, ice or snow) and when cared for properly, they’re always ready for play!
  5. Choose the right landscape design team
    Choosing the right company to assist you in your goals for a perfect backyard putting green is the most important step in the process. The right company will help you figure out the perfect location in your yard, add creative elements and advise you regarding the right materials for the job.

Not only are we personally pleased with the services provided by “Mansfield Landscaping”, but we also wholeheartedly endorse and recommend their services to anyone in need of landscaping.

Robert and Carole

I highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping!

People who use him love him and those who don't have never used him!

Angie Fox

My wife and I presented our landscape ideas to several landscapers in The Villages but no one quite made an impression until we contacted Mansfield Landscaping. We viewed several of their job sites and were fascinated by what we saw and in talking to the homeowners, knew we were headed in the right direction. Ron and his crew took our thoughts and within two days turned them into reality. Their talent and experience is reflected in the work they do and the end result was beyond our expectations. Once again, thanks Mansfield Landscaping for a job well done.

Ed & Janet Ott

We just had the front of our home landscaped by Mansfield Landscaping and could not be happier. We love the new look ! From start to finish, the professionalism and workmanship exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone looking to have some work done.

John and Joanne Weigel

I just had my yard landscaped by Mansfield Landscaping. Wow what a landscape it is! Met with Steve for about two hours. Road around his nursery and tagged the trees we wanted. Steve made recommendations and came up with a fabulous design for our yard. His landscape team came out the next day and began work promptly. The men were very professional and knowledgeable (and courteous too). They cleaned up before they left and returned promptly on day 2. They made sure we were happy with the location of all plants and trees before they placed them in the ground. When they finished up our yard was completely transformed. No money up front...payment is not expected until job is complete and you are satisfied with the outcome. I highly recommend Steve and his team. Give Steve a call (352) 324-2640 if you are going to landscape your yard. Stop by our house and see for yourself!

Mansfield Landscaping LLC sets the benchmark for professional landscaping and exemplary service. Having received horticultural awards for my self-designed/created gardens and hardscape in Pennsylvania, I met my match with Steve Mansfield. I conveyed my ideas, wants, and needs for my Floridian garden/landscaping project. It encompassed a very large challenging space (front and rear of home). Steve took the task at hand adding enhancements and making it more than what I thought it could be. The attention we and this project received from Steve, Ron, the foremen, crew and Lynn (customer service rep) was outstanding. Their expertise, service, and dedication to this project was beyond what was expected. Steve's work ethics and professional attention are commendable. Once you meet Steve, you'll have no reason to look elsewhere. His word is 'gold'. We invite you to our home to see our beautiful lanai setting (garden and patios) and front landscape.

Steve did a fantastic job. I enjoyed the relationship with Steve. I spent two or three hours at his nursery talking to him.

My home is for sale and Steve has certainly improved it's curb appeal both front and back. He's very innovative. His suggestions have worked wonders!
