The installation of an Italian Bocce Ball Court provides an excellent way to spend afternoons and evenings having back yard fun with family, friends and business associates. 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 in a very fine 1/4" minus screen size. In regions with high spring and summer rainfall it is advisable to use a greater percentage of oystershell and washed concrete sand for improved drainage and ease of maintenance. After the installation of the playing surface has been done a layer of finely crushed oystershell flour is often applied. We supply all of these materials for court installations and for seasonal maintenance.
The role that oystershell plays in bocce court surface mixtures is to keep the decomposed granite from binding together becoming extremely hard and un-workable for grooming. The oystershell flakes keep the decomposed granite from completely binding together. Through the normal course of play; ruts, troughs and material displacement takes place. Our decomposed granite oyster shell blend is in traditional Italian bocce ball court surface formula. When groomed out it makes a smooth solid surface to play on. When play is completed it makes for an easy surface to quickly renovate.
We offer several different surface material options, with and without oystershell. Our Wet Climate or Rain Country Blend has a higher percentage of oystershell and washed concrete sand for increase drainage.
We are also able to ship all of the other materials needed for installation and maintenance to you. Installation and maintenance services are available. Our staff is available with free rental tools to assist you or your contractor with an installation.
