When you install an artificial putting green in Phoenix, you want to make sure you have as much privacy as possible. After all, focus is the name of the game when it comes to golf.
These five tips will help you create a quieter and more secluded space for your practice green:
1. Plant a “Live” Hedge or Wall
Let’s start with the easiest: trees. They’re easy to plant and will grow tall enough in time to provide you with some relief from nosy neighbors or next door families.
Just make sure there aren’t power lines where you want them planted or any obstructions such as walls or sidewalks that would impede their growth.
If you like flowers, installing an ornamental hedge around your backyard putting green is a great way to add privacy while also beautifying your space.
Some plants take hold quickly, while others you will probably need to replace every two years – ask your local nursery for advice before planting.
We recommend these trees and tall plants for desert landscapes!
2. Add a Roof to Your Green
If you have enough roof space in your home, you can add a little structure over your artificial putting green in Phoenix – much like you would an outdoor patio.
That way, you’ll be able to enjoy the shade of the roof while you practice your game. If you don’t have room on your roof, you could also consider building an A-frame design with gables and windows that overlook your green. Just make sure it’s not too big so you won’t block out any light from above for your putting surface.
3. Install a Fence Around the Perimeter of Your Green
If you’re looking for a more permanent way to add privacy to your backyard putting green in Phoenix, consider a fence.
You can choose a fence that matches your home’s style or go with something more unique like bamboo fencing. Just make sure you have enough space between the fence and the green so you can putt without hitting anything.
4. Add a Privacy Screen
If you have an existing patio or deck, you can easily add a privacy screen to create some separation between your green and the rest of your backyard.
A privacy screen is just a simple trellis you can put up to provide an extra level of protection. You can use vines like roses or jasmine to soften the look of the trellis, which also goes beautifully with lush artificial grass in Phoenix.
5. Use a Netting System
Netting is a great way to add privacy to your backyard putting green using no plants or structures. A netting system can be made of nylon or another lightweight material you can attach to your fence, wall or roof above your green.
You can also use a net system to block off your green from the rest of your yard. Just install the netting at least four feet high so you can practice in peace without your yard guests constantly looking in on you.
No matter which way you choose to add privacy to your artificial grass installation in Phoenix, you’ll love how comfortable it makes you feel when you’re practicing.
