Transform Your Backyard with These 4 Artificial Grass Recreational Areas - sunburst 1

Artificial grass has become increasingly popular for homeowners looking to enhance their outdoor living spaces. Not only does it provide a lush, low-maintenance lawn, but it also opens up a world of possibilities for creating fun and functional recreational areas.

Bocce Ball Court

Bocce ball is a classic outdoor game that’s perfect for gatherings with family and friends. An artificial grass bocce ball court offers a consistent and level playing surface, ensuring fair play and an enjoyable experience for all participants.

The low-maintenance nature of artificial turf means you won’t have to worry about divots, bare patches, or uneven terrain affecting your game.

Designing your bocce ball courts requires the official dimensions of 91 feet by 13 feet for tournament play or adjust the size to fit your available space. Use a different color or blade height of artificial grass to define the court boundaries and create a visually appealing contrast.

Consider adding a perimeter of pavers or wood to contain the court and provide a finished look.

Volleyball Court

Bring the beach to your backyard with an artificial grass volleyball court. The shock-absorbing properties of artificial turf create a safer and more comfortable playing surface compared to concrete or sand.

The consistent texture of the grass allows for predictable ball bounce and better footing for players, reducing the risk of slips and injuries

When installing your volleyball court, opt for a shorter pile height and denser turf to ensure optimal ball bounce and traction. Use sand infill to provide stability and prevent the turf fibers from matting down over time. Mark the court lines using a contrasting color of turf or with painted lines.

Don’t forget to install a regulation-height net and sturdy posts to complete your court setup.

Putting Green

Golf enthusiasts can perfect their short game right in their own backyard with an artificial grass putting green. The smooth, consistent surface of artificial turf mimics the look and feel of a professional green.  Allowing you to practice your putting stroke and improve your accuracy.

Customize your green with undulations, breaks, and multiple holes to create a challenging and engaging practice area.

First, consider the size and shape that best fits your available space and putting preferences, as well as the

artificial turf services that you are going to utilize. Use a putting-specific turf with shorter blade heights and a denser construction for a true-to-life rolling experience.

Incorporate fringe and rough areas around the green using longer pile heights to simulate on-course conditions. Install regulation cups and flags to complete the authentic putting green experience.

Outdoor Exercise Space

Transform a portion of your backyard into a functional and versatile outdoor exercise space with artificial grass. The cushioning properties of artificial turf provide a comfortable and forgiving surface for a variety of workouts, including yoga, Pilates, and bodyweight exercises.

The durability of synthetic grass withstands the wear and tear of frequent use, maintaining its appearance and performance over time.

For this application, choose a turf with a medium pile height and a dense construction for optimal support and stability. Consider installing a shock pad underlayment for added cushioning and impact absorption.

Use different colors or textures of turf to define workout zones or to create visual interest. Incorporate accessories like resistance bands, kettlebells, or a suspension trainer to expand your exercise options.
