Putting Green Poolside

The weather is warming up now and that means we all get to spend more time outdoors. Hiking, bike riding, and beach days are fun outdoor activities the entire family can enjoy. Going out can be fun but sometimes hanging out at home can be just as fun. Especially with a fun outdoor space that everyone can enjoy. We’ve been chatting at Smart Turf headquarters and the team came up with some fun ideas to share.  Here are a few that made the top of the list.

Outdoor gathering space

A barbecue is essential when we talk about a backyard family gathering space. Countless hours can be spent with the family gathered around the table sharing a meal. Or imagine the kids roasting marshmallows over a fire pit for some yummy s’mores. Whatever you choose to include in your ultimate outdoor backyard, a place to gather and simply hang out should not be missed.

Outdoor movie area

Watching a movie together is a great family activity. Having an outdoor movie space is unique and can provide hours of entertainment. How about movies under the stars? All you’ll need to do is add popcorn and candy. You’ll definitely be the most popular neighbor on the block.

Incorporate Art

An unlikely idea to incorporate an art zone can inspire creativity. Consider different forms of art like sidewalk chalk or an easel for watercolors. The great outdoors can bring out the Picasso in anyone, children and adults alike! Kids love art and since you’re outdoors, you won’t have to worry about the mess with paint. Our kid friendly turf, Playzone Plus, would be great for an art zone because of its low maintenance. It’s also the only artificial grass with built-in Microban® antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and odors by 99%!

Outdoor games  

Jump rope, cornhole, ping pong, the possibilities are endless when we think about outdoor games. Taking advantage of the entire yard is ideal so there’s more space to enjoy. Backyard putting greens have been quite popular and would be so much fun for the entire family. A simple one or two-hole putting green turf would provide endless hours of entertainment.
