If you’re a fan of fishing, boats, cruises or military naval history then a nautical theme will be right up your street. Have a large pond with fish along with a raised decking area surrounded by rope to sit on.

If you are a gold enthusiast then convert your lawn in a putting green, cut a hole out and also have a flag in it so that you can practice on there and then perhaps have some slightly longer grass where you will sit and an actual bunker you can hit out of. If you live inside a particularly wet country or would prefer not to have the hassle of cutting it all then you could go for artificial grass.
