The putting green is from the vendor I always use, and that is SynLawn.

This is a red banana, Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii'. Red bananas are a wonderful ornamental tree for a tropical look in your garden. Check your climate zone for hardiness. Sunset Western Garden Book is one great resource for checking climate.

I LOVE the idea of a small putting area....maybe along west side of house?? Could even be hardpacked dirt, fine gravel instead of turf. Or maybe we can design a bocce bowling court/putting green (along the East side of the house)? Or lawn bowling/putting green: with turf, instead of gravel, and well fitting, but removable covers/cylinders for the cups/holes. Maybe the cover have a turf covered metal top that could be lifted out by a magnet -- to avoid any handle sticking up that woud disrupt the even/level lawn bowling surface.
