Bocce Ball Court with Built-In Putting Green in Sunnyvale, CA

A Sunnyvale, California customer called in to the Forever Greens office in Livermore one hot day in July, to request a free estimate to have a bocce court and some ground cover put in at her home. She was particularly interested in our hybrid bocce court with putting green, and was hopeful that our knowledgeable staff could assist her with deciding on a ground cover that would best suit her home. Our courteous office staff gathered her information, and set up an estimate appointment with Frank, one of the Forever Greens partners.  Once on site, the first task at hand was to survey and measure the area where the bocce court/putting green would be installed. It was decided that a 10‰Ûª by 35‰Ûª (350 square foot) framed court would be an ideal size for her back yard.

We service Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Blackhawk, San Jose, Silicon Valley and neighboring cities in CA.

Beautiful Ground Covers for Any Budget

After looking at a few of the currently popular ground cover options that Forever Greens installs, she chose mulch that is created from shredded redwood bark, commonly called ‰ÛÏGorilla Hair‰Û. Customers occasionally choose this over other ground covers because its wiry hair-like texture helps it to bond together, preventing movement in the wind or rain. It is also less expensive than other ground cover materials such as rock and bark, yet still provides a magnificent fa̤ade for the landscape. Now that everything was measured and ready to go, it was time to place the product orders and set a date to begin installation.

Perfectly Drained Bocce Ball Court

The Sunnyvale customer opted to have their project begin the first week in December, so the Forever Greens installation crew arrived early one morning to get started. Before construction of the bocce court with built-in putting green could begin, the ground had to be cleared and excavated to a smooth level surface. The area where the court was to be placed had an issue with water build-up when it rained, so the installers dug out a small trench and placed a drain line that connected to the mainline for the home. This extra step ensures that water will never sit on the court, which could damage the turf and warp the bumper boards. Once the drain work was complete, the Forever Greens crew built the bocce court frame, then began placing layers of gopher guard, drain rock and decomposed granite, also referred to as DG. The layers were compacted to ensure a solid base for the bocce and putting green surface. One putting cup was marked and cut at each end of the court, and the synthetic turf was now ready to be installed.

Putting Green and Bocce Ball with Tournament Quality Standards

Global Syn-Turf‰Ûªs Poly Pro Putt was chosen to create the surface for the bocce court with putting green. The artificial turf was rolled and cut to the measurements of the court frame, then weighted down with fine mesh sand that was brushed in and rolled to create a tournament speed surface. The putting cup holes were cut out, and a beautiful redwood bumper was secured inside the frame. In order to create the solid bocce court surface, 2 specially designed removable cup plugs were placed into the putting cups. The Forever Greens crew spread the Gorilla Hair ground cover around the edges of the court, and project was complete. The customer was overjoyed to have it finished so quickly, and could not wait to show it off to friends and family who were coming to visit for the holidays.

I just wanted to say I love how our yard came out, it’s awesome. We had our front yard done with artificial grass and put a putting green in our backyard. We worked with Ronnie he was great and easy to work with.

Perfect Lawn and even better service! At the end of October we decided to pull the trigger and replace our dead lawn in the backyard with artificial turf. It was absolutely the best decision ever. We had company coming into town for a party and our foreman Fernando took great care of us and finished the job before everyone arrived. The crew was very professional and super nice too! We have a large Doberman and we chose to get the pet turf. Diva loves her new lawn and we’ve even had a handful of her dog friends over to play.

Mike O’Neil and his team  just completed our patio renovation. Although my photos don’t do justice, they performed beyond expectations! New Pavers added, New Patio Cover added and renovated many other distressed areas of our yard. I can’t start to compliment them enough for their help from start to finish. We are so very pleased with the results of adding this entirely new entertainment area to our home. Don’t bother with all the other companies that disappoint, these guys go beyond your dreams and well below your budget!

I can’t say enough about the excellent experience we had on a complete backyard remodel. They were patient during the initial quote as we nailed down details but once the work started, the paver and natural grass crews worked long days and exceeded my expectations in every way. Best of all, no surprise overages when they were all done. Now that we have the backyard of our dreams, we are already planning on using them again for the front yard.

My wife and I couldn’t be more pleased with our new back yard. We hooked up with Mike  and his team, lead by Erik and Fernando to give our backyard a makeover and complement a pool we had going in. It was a pretty involved design that included paver stones, outdoor games (bocce and chess), a custom grill and covered patio, lighting, and plant material. They worked with us to refine our design that maximized our space and budget while adding a bit of flare at the same time. Mike and his team kept me informed of there progress the ...continued

Amazing!! Thank you Mike O., for going above and beyond in helping me make my place look more like home. I live in an apartment in San Francisco and needed a green area of grass for me and my pup. Not only did he help with this but also provided resources for materials and was very thorough on how to install it. I get so many compliments from my neighbors and it has made the complex look even nicer. Me and pup are forever grateful

If you’re looking to add artificial grass to your outdoor space look no further! My family and I have been undergoing construction for over a year and a half, and we grew tired of the incessant mud and overall maintenance of our lawn in the front yard and back yard. Coupled with two Siberian Huskies that love the mud, we constantly had dirt and paw prints tracked into our home. We began to research artificial lawns to see if this may solve our problem along with continuing to provide us with an authentic outdoor experience. We had other companies in ...continued

I am a designer and I work with contractors on a daily basis- so I’m pretty picky with the work I contract out. These guys were very professional, diligent and most importantly responsive! Their prices were competitive and he quality of work was excellent. Check out the pictures of our finished product. Lawn looks so good and the putting green is perfection. The speed and breaks that my husband requested was taken into account and they followed through. If you’re looking for a no maintenance yard or a professional putting green these are your guys.

We had a wonderful experience with every member of the team we came in contact with. Our project ended up being limited to a pergola and some backyard spot lighting but the team started with Mario who is kind, knowledgeable and has many wonderful ideas. The project coordinators and team of individuals such as Erik, who always kept is up to date on the start of our project and required inspections along with everyone else who did such a lovely job. I couldn’t be more pleased our backyard is favorite place to be now!

Our lawn had seen better days and we decided to make the switch to turf.   His crew were quick to rip out the old grass and lay down the beautiful green turf.  They had the job done quick and easy.  We plan to have them back to help us with the front yard next.  Highly recommend!  Thanks crew!!!! Hope to have you guys back soon for another job.

Chris  helped me last year with my synthetic lawn. It needed to be dog proof and it turned out perfect. Start to finish the service was great. This year he came back to install Gold Fine for a patio area under my pine tree, plus install a French Drain. The work was done in a timely fashion and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. Above and beyond expectations, Chris buffed up my last years lawn and returned on his day off with his adorable boys to make a quick change to the French Drain grate. I highly recommend Chris
