Summer is the best time of year for outdoor activities! The days are longer, the air is warmer and the backyard is the best place to be for alfresco summer dinners under the Texas stars, movie night on an outdoor screen, and lawn games. 


Bocce involves two teams and nine balls. One player throws a small ball, called a pallino, down the court. Players then alternate tossing the other eight balls,  trying to get as close as possible to the smaller ball. The person who throws the closest ball and teammates whose balls are closer than their opponents earn points. Go ahead and install a court in your backyard, buyers love them! 


A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet. We often seen these multi-sport court installations Austin backyards.


Cornhole is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing 16 ounce bags of corn kernels at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21. It’s perfect for backyard entertaining and family fun! 


In Westlake, a $1M will get you a nice lot Horseshoes is a lawn game played between two people using four horseshoes and two throwing targets set in a lawn or sandbox area. The game is played by the players alternating turns tossing horseshoes at stakes in the ground, which are traditionally placed 40 feet apart. A well executed pit can add style and fun to your backyard! 

A backyard putting green is a great way to practice the sport from the comfort of your own home. A putting green can be  a great addition to your backyard and will provide hours of enjoyment as well as increase your home’s resale value. There are tons of backyard putting green designs to give you inspiration for your practice space.
