With the fair weather we experience in Northern California, there is no end to the great outdoors activities we can do all year round. Many homeowners love to use their backyard space to create a comfortable haven for outside hobbies and sports, but find the cost of maintaining a natural lawn to be too high in times of drought. Here are some of the ways you can use sports courts and artificial lawns to create visually appealing backyard designs that the whole family can enjoy.
Soccer, Baseball or Football Field
While you probably don’t have enough space to build a full-size football field, a miniature version is perfect for practicing football or running soccer drills. For even more fun, a baseball diamond of any size can be installed to allow for family baseball or kickball games. A multi-purpose athletic field provides a safe surface for full-contact sports, and the superior traction and plush feel of artificial turf allows athletes to run, kick and play without fear of injury. As a bonus, you can play all day without gaining a single grass stain, and tracking in mud becomes a thing of the past, since artificial lawns absorb water and dry at a relatively fast pace.
Create the best space to shoot hoops in the entire neighborhood. Whether you want a full or half court, basketball players will enjoy the consistent performance, durability and injury-reduction capabilities of our modular courts.
While normally played on grass or sand, volleyball is a good choice of sport to try playing on an artificial grass surface too. Our synthetic lawns provide a cushiony, smooth surface for jumping, running and landing after you perform the perfect save.
While racquetball is a growing sport in many parts of the country, it can often be difficult to find a good place to practice. Having your own personal court is sure to give you an edge over the competition and make you the envy of all the other players. Sports courts from Southwest Greens of East Bay hold up to all the hard hits and intense speeds that occur in a typical round, giving you a court that lasts.
Putting Practice Green
If you have ever wanted to improve your short game without driving all the way to the country club or golf course, a backyard putting green may be the best thing for you. Unlike turf products of the past, our artificial golf greens look and feel like natural grass, which allows you to get the most consistent play possible while at the same time adding to the beauty of your yard. If you have a larger space, we can even install a custom putting green that includes hills, sand pits, obstacles and more. Endorsed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, as well as top PGA golfers including Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose, eco-friendly artificial putting green products from Southwest Greens of East Bay set the industry standard for performance, aesthetics and durability. In addition, we have partnered with Nicklaus Designs to make premium putting greens that effortlessly handle the most intense indoor or outdoor golfing needs.
Artificial grass can be used for many different kinds of applications, and modular sports courts are a warm welcome from the rough concrete surfaces that many families utilize for sports such as basketball or racquetball. Our specialized surface materials offer a superior level of safety and require minimal maintenance, giving you more freedom to enjoy your yard. Our courts are available in 16 standard colors as well as custom colors, and we can even add your favorite team’s logo to personalize the playing area. As an added bonus, our artificial lawns are pet-friendly and environmentally safe for the whole family.
