Tilly loves being creative and helping homeowners bring entertainment they love to their own yards. Ever dream of a putting green in the back for practice? A bocce ball court for evening entertainment? A basketball court for a passionate player? Well, these Tilly clients did! Check out some fun outdoor entertainment ideas our client’s are dreaming up with their designers.

Putting Greens in Your Yard

                    South Carolina Tilly Client

Tilly Tip: Remember you can make your putting green the size you prefer. We were able to fit this client’s putting green in their side yard, a space that was unused previously!

Basketball Court in Your Yard

Tilly Tip: You don’t need a huge property to include a partial basketball court. Drawing paint lines on a classic driveway hoop can make it feel just as special.

 

Kid’s Play Structures in Your Yard

Tilly Tip: Working with a designer is a great way to maximize your space. This client was excited to learn they could fit a play area for their kids in their side yard and keep their smaller backyard for entertaining.

Sunken Trampoline

Tilly Tip: We love a sunken trampoline. They are (a little!) less dangerous and because they blend in with the ground, less of an eye sore in your yard. The good news is – they are just as much fun!

 

Thinking About Putting in a Sports Court

Tilly Tip: The above are two of Tilly’s planting plans that showcase a putting green and bocce court. It’s always good to have a solid plan before embarking on a project like this. Think about how you use your space, who will be using the sports court or entertainment area, and where it should go in relation to the house, outdoor dining area, etc.!

We have found the Tilly process to be most successful on properties less than an acre.

A major part of remote design is understanding a property’s existing conditions and limitations. To do this we generally use the primary structure (usually the house) as the main point of reference. The greater distances are from from the house the less successful we are at understanding your property. No matter what the size of your property, the more information you can provide us, the better. Don’t be shy with the pictures! And please send along any and all architectural or property plan documents you can.
