Landscaping for Your Hobbies

July 24th, 2020

Thinking of redesigning your landscape? Forget – for just a minute – everything you know about landscaping. If you could have absolutely anything that you wanted, what would it be? Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of creating very customized landscapes for our northern Colorado clients. Whether you’re a train afficionado or love hosting bocce tournaments, why not build it into your landscape? Here’s just a few ideas on how to landscape for your hobbies and wildest dreams – although this is just the beginning!

Bocce Ball Court

The backyard bocce ball court is a must for those who love entertaining! Imagine the neighborhood tournaments you could host. Let our Alpine Gardens crew members take care of the leveling and designing, you take care of the playing! (But if you want to invite us back later for a game or two, we won’t be mad).

Artificial Turf Golf Green

Who says you can’t have a putting green in your backyard? This is the perfect addition to your custom landscape – it entertains both kids and adults! We can build your landscape around a small green with a few holes for putting practice, or something larger with sand bunkers, a chipping area, a water feature, or even some obstacles for a mini golf course.

Train Tracks

We love the challenge of incorporating our clients’ personalities into their landscape – after all, your home and yard should be a reflection of you! One of our favorite projects was designing this landscape with a train track running through it. The tracks were complete with a little bridge, waterfalls, and tunnels. Talk about a conversation piece!

Reading Nook

Are you someone who loves your privacy? Why not design a corner of your yard to be just for you – think tall foliage, a hammock, maybe a small pergola, or electrical lighting for evening reading! The possibilities are endless. If you want a small space to just ‘get away’, let our landscape designers help you brainstorm.

In-Ground Trampoline

If you know the kids would just love a trampoline, why not install it in-ground? There are many benefits to in-ground trampolines as opposed to above ground ones: they are closer to the ground and can therefore be safer, many feel they are more aesthetically pleasing in the yard, and the strong Front Range winds won’t blow them away!

Giant Chess or Checkers

We’re all about the yard games. If you have a grandmaster in the house, it might be worth investing in an outdoor chess set! A checkerboard pattern can be created using different colored stones or pavers, and large game pieces can be purchased online. If you’re thinking about installing some outdoor games, let our team at Alpine Gardens help you!

 

Was that enough to get your creative juices running? Alpine Gardens has been handcrafting custom landscapes since 1978 all across the Front Range.
