Backyard Putting Greens: Practice right outside your door!

Backyard Putting Greens: Practice right outside your door!

When 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.

Mansfield Landscaping just completed a new look for the front of our house and we love it! Steve had great ideas, was easy to work with. HIs crew were dedicated, hard working, respectful and cleaned up after themselves. Highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.

Just had 250 ft. Of capped border wall around large garden area, added stone, plants and shrubs. Very happy with the work and results. No complaints what so ever. We have had many comments on what a beautiful job Mansfield did. Thanks so much, Norm and Sandy

All companies promise a lot, very few actually deliver. Mansfield did what they said they were going to do, did it when they said it was going to be done, and were courteous and helpful throughout project. Project included sodding, rocking beds, paver walk paths, rock retaining walls and irrigation system adjustments/repairs. Definitely would recommend.

We are very pleased with the results. We had everything redone from new landscaping, irrigation and sod. Steve was very knowledgeable. He provided tons of information on types of trees, plants, etc. that are good for a low maintenance yard. The crew were friendly, courteous and professional. They went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. They brought plenty of plants for us to choose from. Overall, the company has exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

Our landscaping was 15 years old. Mansfield removed all of our old bushes and hedges (that were taking over our house). They brought many plants and bushes for us to choose from. They placed them in the beds so we could see what it would like before they started to dig. They checked all the irrigation system and changed whatever need to be fixed. They put in all new stone. And the cement borders they placed around the beds were a great finishing touch on a beautiful, professional job that was done in a very timely manner. And you pay nothing until the job is completely finished.

Steve and crew did an excellent job. They came when scheduled and were gone in two days. The clean up was performed like they were never here. At-A-Boys.

Mansfield Landscaping was easy to deal with in the estimate process and in the actual landscaping process. They delivered what they promised in the timeframe they promised, no "additional" costs or time. We will be using them for any future landscaping needs.
