How to create a back garden sporting paradise for children

In an age when so much of our kids' time is spent in front of one screen or another, it is great to create a space for them where they can indulge in their favourite sporting activities. The parents of these three lucky kids decided to do just that and called in Artificial Lawn Company's expertise to create both a pitch and putt golfing green, and a netball practice area.

The result is an outside space that not only looks great all year round but can also be used by their children and their friends no matter what the weather. And no muddy footprints!

The L-shaped garden lent itself to being divided into two zones - one for the golf and the other for the netball.

The golf zone was landscaped with several undulating contours to make the putting more challenging and interesting. It was finished with the company's 17mm Golf Prograss-Green, which creates the perfect stimp speed for putting, and is extremely low maintenance. Golf holes were strategically located, set in a sharp sand and cement mix. The green itself was then edged with Artificial Lawn Company's 45mm Supreme Lawn to add a more luxurious feel to the installation as a while, redolent of some of the best golf courses.

The dedicated netball area was laid with the company's 18mm multipurpose sports grass. This tough and durable lawn provides a non-slip surface for even the wettest of weathers, but also has a reasonable bounce for when the netball area is doubled up for use as a football area as well.

And for the parents? They could relax in what evolved into a beautiful outside space, safe in the knowledge that their children had ample entertainment outside in the fresh air, with minimal maintenance requirements.
