Golf Course Landscape Design in Southern California
California is home to more than 900 golf courses, which employ nearly 35,000 people. Although golf is a popular activity here in The Golden State, many courses struggle to bring in players or turn a profit. If you'd like to see more rounds of golf being played, perhaps it is time to update your landscaping.
The appearance of your golf course is paramount to its reputation. Players desire an aesthetically-pleasing design that does not distract them from their game. After all, 18 holes of golf is supposed to be a relaxing experience, right? At Cutting Edge Landscape Design, we are a leading provider of golf course landscaping, and would welcome the opportunity to assist you.
Southern California Golf Landscape Design
The right landscaping is needed to turn your golf course from ordinary to extraordinary. Without landscaping, you could be left with nothing but fields of green grass. Our landscape design firm can help you enhance your landscaping by:
- Adding a few pops of color to brighten up dull areas
- Enhancing certain terrain features, including existing trees and shrubs
- Highlighting water features
Golf course landscaping makes the most of your course's natural beauty, yet is never so overwhelming that it becomes "busy." As a result, your golfers will notice their peaceful surroundings and be better tuned in to nature.
We carefully design our projects to ensure new plant life never gets in the way of a good golf game, but instead only serves to enhance it. If you are wondering how new landscaping could improve the look of your golf course, please contact us.
Low Water Golf Course Landscape Design in California
Southern California is known for bright, sunny days and very little rain. In fact, it's not uncommon for no rain at all to fall during the summer months. That doesn't mean you can't have magnificent landscaping though.
At Cutting Edge Landscape Design, we are experts at low water landscaping, and regularly provide it to our clients in and around Los Alamitos. We can create a low water golf course design that will minimize the amount of maintenance that's required. This type of design saves money and is good for the environment, yet will also provide you with the "wow" factor you are hoping for.
Don't let a worry over maintenance costs keep you from enjoying a newer, more eye-catching golf course. Arrange a consultation so that we can discuss low water maintenance design in greater detail. You'll already be ahead of the game, and will not have to worry if the state of California issues a mandatory cutback in water usage as they did in 2015.
Native Plants and Xeriscaping in Orange County, California
One reason we are able to offer low water design is through our use of native plants and xeriscaping. Native plants are easy to establish because they are already well suited for an area. Accordingly, they will require less maintenance and water than specimens introduced from elsewhere.
Xeriscaping in particular involves the use of plants that are drought hardy. Xeriscaping is interpreted as "dry landscape", and as a result many specimens require only trace amounts of water.
That doesn't mean you are stuck with only dry cactuses. Many scientific advances in the field of horticulture have resulted in a variety of plant strains with a reduced need for water. Accordingly, xeriscape plants can include specimens such as:
- Ornamental grasses
- North American prairie plants
- Shrubs and bushes
- Trailing vines
- Ornamental trees
There's virtually no end to the number of low-maintenance plants that can be included in your golf course. Are you curious how you might benefit from a golf course landscape design that includes native plants and xeriscaping? If so, we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about it.
Benefits of Golf Course Landscape Design
The National Golf Foundation reports that young adults between the ages of 18 and 34 comprise the largest age segment among golf players. High numbers of female golfers also enjoy the game. These demographics are more likely to be concerned with aesthetics than an older person who has been playing golf for a number of years.
By installing new landscaping, you'll appeal to a wider group of people than ever before. New golfers means you can continue earning your share of California's $5.1 billion golf industry.
Not only will you draw new people in, but you can reduce your maintenance costs as well. Accordingly, golf course landscape design could be a win-win for your establishment. Contact a member of our design team to find out how you too could benefit.
