Do you have a golfer in your life? Do you like to take to the links? As any seasoned golfer will tell you most of the game comes down to putting. There is no better way to perfect your putting skills than to have your own putting green in your Ohio backyard. That’s not as far-fetched as it sounds. In fact, there is a business in Columbus called Backyard Putting Greens (naturally) who has a simple philosophy: A green for every golfer. Here’s their mission statement: “No matter who you are, and regardless of your budget or space limitations, we intend to match you up with a system that will improve your score, your confidence and most of all, your simple enjoyment of the great game of golf.” They can turn any corner of a backyard into a professional quality putting green. Imagine the look of surprise on the golfer you love when they come home to find their own practice green waiting for them.
If golfing isn’t your thing, then perhaps it is backyard grilling. The summer in Columbus is the time to fire up those bar-b-ques and get to grilling. There was a time when the average backyard bar-b-que consisted of a metal tub like device that you would fill with charcoal, slather with lighting fluid and fire up. Today’s modern grills are one-start affairs fueled by easy to light propane gas. Of course if you want that genuine smoky flavor, you’ll have to go old school with the wood chips.
Then there are those lucky few who have a swimming pool in their backyards to spend the warm summer days floating on a raft with a cool drink. It doesn’t get any better than that. If you’ve got the space, but don’t have the pool this could be the season you get it installed. Whether you go above ground or built in, you’re sure to spend many relaxing hours outdoors.
Between the putting greens, the bar-b-ques or the swimming pools you certainly have a lot of options when it comes to your potential backyard fun. Of course, you need to get your backyard into shape first. This could mean clearing out a lot of ground or tossing out that old patio furniture. Most folks keep their patio furniture outside all year round. It’s designed to take a beating, but that doesn’t mean patio furniture is going to last a lifetime. If your patio furniture has seen better days then it might be time to toss it out. That is easier said than done especially if these are big bulky pieces.
That’s why you should hire a professional crew of haulers like Junk King Columbus who can come out to your home and haul away that old, rusty furniture once and for all. As soon as that’s cleared away, you’ll be able to reimagine what you’re going to do with your backyard. The perfect scenario would be a pool next to the putting green by the bar-b-que.
