Summer is officially here! This season is the perfect excuse to spend time with the family outdoors. Durable SYNLawn artificial grass is a must have during these events! After a long day of running and playing on your lawn, it will still look great. There is an endless amount of games to play on those long summer nights that will bring your family closer together. Here are our go-to activities:

Putting Greens

There are so many ways to practice golf in Kansas City, from country clubs to renowned golf courses. When you have a SYNLawn putting green installed in your backyard, it makes it even easier to perfect your swing.

Our golf greens are great for practicing your short game, but Kansas City homeowners also love the hours of entertainment it offers. One game to play is called Gate Crasher. This is played by placing two golf balls about 8 inches apart, then standing about 8 feet away from them. Next, you set up shots and each person takes turns trying to hit their ball through gap. The goal is to make it through the two balls without hitting them. Everyone in the family can enjoy this game right on your backyard putting green.

Outdoor Games

Yard games are popular because it gives you an excuse to get outside, and it offers enough space to spread out. However, it can be damaging to your lawn if the game gets intense. Artificial grass is the perfect solution! Our turf requires very little maintenance, even between uses, and won’t die after heavy foot traffic. Enjoy any of these yard games, day and night, without worrying about your lawn:

All these games can be played with at least four people making them perfect for family time, and they are all fairly easy to get the hang of. Use the list above to reference the rules to each game before you start playing.

Backyard Adventures

Another Kansas City favorite during the summer is backyard camping! This activity is simple, and your family gets to go camping in the comfort of your own backyard. The kids will love it because it really feels like camping, and parents love it because it’s a budget-friendly summer escape. You can also set up a DIY projector screen with a sheet for a movie under the stars.
