Whether you want to use your backyard as an entertaining oasis or a kid friendly place for your kids, there are a ton of things you can do to create the perfect atmosphere! Here are just four out-of-the-box ideas that could turn your backyard into the best backyard in the neighborhood!
If you can play it, you can find a sports court you can play it on. There are cushiony courts for volleyball, and smooth, non-abrasive courts for a roller hockey rink. Of course, you also can play tennis or basketball on these beautiful courts.
When space is at a premium and you have to choose between a pool or a sport court, consider that a sport court requires less cleaning and you only need a fence to keep balls in, not the neighbors out.
A backyard putting green with natural breaks and slopes that look and feel like your favorite course can help you perfect your put without leaving home. Southwest Greens offers a Nicklaus-Designs-created green with custom features such as precise dimension, slope, elevation, contour and area data. Biggest advantage: Nobody has to see you miss that 2-foot gimme.
Bar, Fire And Saltwater = Fabulous Pool
If you’re still using chlorine, switch over to a salt water system, where a generator uses electrolysis to release chlorine gas from salt in the water. But don’t think the water tastes like ocean water; it tastes more like a teardrop.
Add Kalamazoo’s Artisan Fire Pizza Oven to your outdoor kitchen and you’ll be baking Neapolitan-style pizza year-round on the searing 800 degree baking deck and ceiling stone. It can weather the bitter cold of Chicago winters and give you Chicago-style pizza, too. Each oven is custom made of stainless steel, brass and bronze and is built to stay outdoors on an outdoor counter-top.
