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.

We had a wonderful experience with forever greens and 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 to go with a company like forever greens, our backyard is ...continued

Our lawn had seen better days and we decided to make the switch to turf.  Frank made it super easy to choose our turf and putting green.  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 Frank and crew!!!! Hope to have you guys back soon for another job.

Chris at Forever Greens 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 ...continued

Frank and his team are amazing! I called a few landscape companies to help me add some flagstone to my backyard and all of them declined due to the small size of the job, except for Frank. When I called Frank, he came by to do the estimate and was very thorough and detailed about his plans and next steps. I am very happy with how my backyard turned out! Thank you Frank & team!

Forever Greens completed my modest backyard project of about 700 sq feet of synthetic lawn. Mike gave me a great quote and provided me with excellent customer service throughout the project. The work crew was very professional and did a great job on the install. Mike and the crew worked with me during every phase of the project to ensure my needs were met and questions were answered. Details like ensuring my landscaping lights and outer area sprinklers sill worked were not overlooked. They went above and beyond to make sure one area of the lawn was set up as ...continued

Forever Greens team installed a traditional Bocce Ball court for me at my commercial campus in Alameda. Service was excellent, price was very competitive and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend using this company.

Mark is a true professional, his quote was well organized, well written, and very thorough. He is also great at guiding you through the installation procedure. Forever Greens as a company also seems very well organized and responds back immediately to customer inquiries. I would recommend Forever Greens to others looking for a reliable and professional artificial turf installation company.

Having managed one myself, I know what to look for in a good small business. The people at Forever Greens were truly helpful, considerate and generous of their time. From the office staff, Tinysha, to the men who helped me with the green itself, Frank and Mike, everyone was incredibly easy and fun to work with. They went above and beyond to help me with a special project that required some special thought and creativity. They really know and understand their product. And it is a wonderful, high-quality turf that they work with. I would suggest Forever Greens to anyone ...continued
