Dream Yards: Backyard Sport Court Ideas, Episode. 5
Want to gain creative ideas and inspiration for your very own backyard sport court? If so, tune in to see how one Buford, Georgia family’s dream yard became a reality.
Join veteran landscape designer and Dream Yards host Jane Waldrop as she pays a visit to Tom and Amy DeGoey’s sports-centric residence as we explore their property for backyard sport court ideas and inspiration.
Backyard sport court inspiration.
As former college athletes and parents of two current NCAA athletes, the DeGoeys love all things stick and ball. Competition’s king here, so a sports court topped their dream yard’s must-have list. The neighborhood kids love hooping it up day and night, and Amy’s passion is tennis. And, so their builder made a sport court a reality. And, the focal point of their expansive property.
Tom and Amy were eager to share their favorite backyard focal points with us. Aside from loving the backyard sport court, Tom’s pick was their fire pits. Specifically, a wood-burning unit in the lower yard for the kids, and a poolside gas-powered unit for the adults. For Amy, it was all about having a pool and outdoor entertaining area that flowed directly from the heart of the family’s home: their kitchen.
Exmark shoots, scores, and the DeGoeys win!
Tom and Amy ended our visit by thanking Casey Gibson and his team at ProScape Land Management for the time and attention to detail in maintaining their dream yard. ProScape exclusively uses Exmarks—“the best of the best” in Tom’s eyes, as he and Amy had seen them on other dream yards they sought to emulate when creating their own.
Now that you’ve had a taste, what will your dream yard look like?
