Due to California's extremist environmental regulatory actions, the harvesting of the oyster shell materials has been closed since August of 2020 with continued delays created by regulatory agencies. Production of this very important source of nutrients for agriculture and bocce ball court surfaces will resume by June 2021.

We have a waiting list of buyers, we strongly suggest you get your name on the waiting list.

Mining shall halt for two months each year from February through June. Each year by January 31, Permittee shall notify the Regional Representative of the months in which mining will cease.

Oyster Shell and D. G. Blends
Our Silver or Gold Decomposed Granite 1/4" Minus is blended with premium quality marine composted crushed oyster shell and oyster shell flour that results in the typical traditionally Italian bocce ball court. This mixture is installed over a layer standard 3/8" minus decomposed granite depth of 1-1/2 to 3 inches, which equals 1 ton of blended material per 100 to 150 square feet.

The role that oyster shell plays in bocce court surface mixtures is to keep the decomposed granite from becoming extremely hard and un-workable for grooming. The oyster shell 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.

Oyster Shell Flour
Oyster shell flour is applied over the top of the finished court surface at the rate of 1/4 to 1/2 pound per square foot resulting in a thin
layer of finely crushed oyster shell flour for a very smooth playing surface.
