Detailed Spec sheet for the blend is given below.



Recreational use an Italian Bocce Ball Court provides an excellent way to spend afternoons and evenings having back yard fun with family and friends.

The Silver Blended Rain Country blend is made up of our Sierra Silver Grey Decomposed Granite 1/4" Minus is blended with premium quality marine composted crushed oyster shell flour and washed concrete sand. We use a higher percentage of oyster shell in this blend than in our Dry Climate Blends.
This produces a good draining but still results in the typical t
raditionally Italian bocce ball court. This mixture is installed over a layer standard 3/8" minus decomposed granite to a 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 flour plays in bocce court surface mixtures is to keep the decomposed granite from becoming extremely hard and un-workable for grooming. The oyster flour 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 flour 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 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.
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. However this should not be done during periods of seasonal rain fall since it will be quickly washed into the oyster shell and decomposed granite mixture.

Bocce Court Silver Surface Dry Climate Mix is made up of Sierra Silver Decomposed Granite material with apx. 25% crushed naturally marine composted oyster shell. The shell is in the form of thin 3⁄8” wide thin flakes with approximately 20% fines or “oyster shell flour” and washed concrete sand for added drainage. Material is similar to texture of fish scales not shell pebbles. Bocce courts require regular grooming of the surface with a push broom or tennis court broom and large landscape rake. 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.

We are often asked if oyster shell or oyster flour will damage lawns or plants near the playing court. To that we answer, this material is safe for use around plants and is key ingredient in organic
farming. A high quality soil conditioner which consists of 96% calcium carbonate and many micro-nutrients, Oyster Shell provides a long-lasting, steady release of nutrients to help regulate pH levels, improve fertilizer uptake, promote healthy cellular structure and enhance soil tilth.

The square foot coverage per ton of gravel will vary slightly with the surface and designs of the project, waste etc. will affect area coverage. The information is based on average ton and cubic yard amounts. This decorative building stone has naturally occurring colors and shade variations. These are what gives this stone the natural beauty and uniqueness that causes its appeal. Color tones change can sometimes occur with aging or maintenance practices of the location it is installed at therefore exact matching of existing stone may not always occur. During processing or transportation dust will adhere to the rocks and change its appearance on arrival but we guarantee all stone to be true to the specific brand name, type and size ordered or complete exchange including transportation costs will be made.
