When you purchase a larger home, there are all sorts of things you may find that you want to change. One of those things may be a synthetic grass tennis court. If you have purchased an older larger home that has one of these, and you are not a tennis fan, you may be wondering how you can convert the court so it is suitable for your kids and for you. Here are a few ways.
Synthetic Grass Playground
There are many community playgrounds that use the base of synthetic grass instead of real grass. This has several benefits. It cuts down on allergies that some children may have to grass. It also prevents weeds from growing and can deter pests from the area as well. With some well placed playground equipment, you can convert the tennis court into a great place for your kids and their friends to play. You can even have it covered so they can play rain or shine.
Synthetic Grass Outdoor Gym
One way to use the synthetic grass tennis court for something new for your kids and you is to create an outdoor gym. The synthetic grass is an ideal base for something like this. For this project, you will need to have any repairs done to the synthetic grass that is already there. Once this is done, you can have the area covered and add in outdoor suitable gym equipment. You can even have equipment fit for kids so they can workout with you.
Synthetic Grass Gaming Area
There are many outdoor games that your kids can enjoy and that can benefit from a synthetic grass base. You can create a place for them to draw on the grass with chalk. They can draw out hop scotch and learn numbers while they play. They can also draw out things like a volleyball area, four square area, or a place for horseshoes. They can even draw with colored chalk and turn the area into an artful discovery. When they are done, spray off the grass with a water hose.
Keep in mind, with all of these methods of upgrading and reusing the synthetic grass tennis court, you will need to have any damaged synthetic grass replaced. This can be done by contacting a landscaper who specializes in this type of outdoor grass. They can give you a cost estimate and possibly help you with upgrading the court in other ways with more landscaping options.
