Bocce Court Oyster Shell Blend Spreads
The installation of an Italian Bocce Ball Court provides an excellent way to spend afternoons and evenings having back yard fun with family and friends.
Traditionally Bocce Ball courts are covered with a 2 to 3 inch layer of crushed oyster shell spread that has been blended with decomposed granite or crushed stone fines. After that has been done a layer of finely crushed oyster shell flour is often applied. We supply all of these materials for court installations and for seasonal maintenance.
We offer two different Bocce Ball Court Oyster Shell Blends, a dry climate (DC) and a wet climate (WC).
Wet Climate Blend
The Bocce Ball Court Oyster Shell Blend WC is ideal for regular rainfall climates such most northern portions of California and Pacific Northwest, Upper Midwest and other regions where regular to heavy rainfall requires a light blend that will not become hard and compacted. The Wet Climate blend is slightly more expensive since it contains a high percentage of crushed oyster shells to lesson compaction that would otherwise result from regular or heavy periods of rainfall.
Dry Climate Blend
The Bocce Ball Court Oyster Shell Blend DC is ideal for dry climates, like most of California, the Western and Southwest States. The Dry Climate blend is less expensive since a lower amount of crushed oyster shell is required to maintain desirable court conditions.
Shipping
Blended materials are shipped bulk or 2,000 and 3,000 pound SuperEarth-sacks and can be shipped or in some regions made available for will-call. Bulk orders are shipped in amounts of 10 to 25 tons through California and into Reno, Las Vegas NV and Phoenix and Tucson AZ.


Material Size Choices
The use of decorative rock as a landscape ground cover or rock mulch to save water needs to be attractive to be effective. We believe that in most residential landscape and garden installation circumstances this is best done with 3/8" screened rock and not 3/4" screened rock. For pathways and drive areas where foot traffic is expected 3/8" rock materials are best. 3/4" rock works great in very large planterbeds and is important design element in large residential and commercial landscapes. For more creative rock work designs consider using various sizes of rock ruble from 1 through 12 inches.
Rate Per Ton
As a general rule of 3/8" or 3/4" of crushed rock or river pebble material will generally cover a little over 100 square feet of an ground area at a 2" depth.
Rate Per Yard
As a general rule 1 cubic yard of 3/8" or 3/4" of crushed rock or river pebble material will generally cover 125 square feet in a 2" inch layer. A cubic yard of crushed rock or river pebbles material weighs between 2,300 and 3,200 pounds depending upon the type of rock quarried.
Purchase by the Scoop, Skip, Yard or Ton ?
Landscape supply yards are infamous for providing buyers with horrible rates of measurement. In nearly all cases they tell you that "their" scoop or skip is the best deal around and that they always give a little extra. Nothing could be further from the truth. All companies that buy at the wholesale level in our industry pay for their rock by the ton. When buy rock by the tone you are buying value, not hype.
Ask For A Scale House Receipt
Almost any quarry that sells quality rock with a good reputation has a certified scale for weighing large truck loads of rock material. Each "scale house" or "weigh master" issues a weight ticket for the truck passing over the scale. Selling materials by mythical measurements such as the "scoop" or "skip" is the snake oil salesman in the rock yard method for making a quick buck off buyers.
When you pay for materials by ton you know exactly what you are getting. We strongly urge buyer's to request a scale receipt for their orders and not the word of the tractor operator that he put 4 or 5 skips, scoops or yards in the truck.

When ordering use the Purchase Order function at checkout and enter ROCK as your payment method. This will allow you to create an order for a firm transportation quote without having to pay for it at this time. While we have posted transport rates, in many circumstances we are able to ship the order to you for less. You will be given a firm cost on the whole order within a few minutes to a few hours.
