Imagine the endless design possibilities of combining putting greens with water features. You will truly be able to offer your clients a total transformation of their existing yard.

Look at this great before, during and after green and water garden installation. The StoutGroup in Hendersonville, NC was able to be involved in this project.This is just one beautiful example of how greens and water features compliment each other to create a beautiful and functional back yardparadise. Michael Stout was approached by James Tate of Tate Landscape and Design in Highland, NC to design the landscape and install the water feature. In the breakout, you willsee how both companies were able to make great profits and give the homeowner exactly what they wanted in their landscape design.

Michael Stout had this to sayabout the project. “It’s a great satisfaction for us when we are about to create a personal paradise and the satisfaction the customer receives from that.”

James Tate said that when designing a landscape utilizing both a putting green and a water feature that he feels the green should be close to the water feature to get a more natural feel.He tries to make them interactive.“Water tends to bring out the kidin all of us and having the green close to the water feature encourages interaction and activity in the area.” They were not sure in the beginning whether or not they were going to install a natural or synthetic green in the area.Once they contacted Michael and the installation began, he knew that they had made the right choice for the project. The end result is truly a personal paradise for their customer.
