Our Gold Decomposed Granite 1/4" Minus is blended with premium quality 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 of 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 shell plays in bocce court surface mixtures is to keep the decomposed granite from becoming extremely hard and unworkable 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 the 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 the oyster shell. Our Wet Climate or Rain Country Blend has a higher percentage of oyster shells and washed concrete sand for increased 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.
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.
Shipping In California, Arizona, and Nevada blended materials are shipped bulk amounts of up to 25 tons. Smaller orders in 2,000 and 3,000-pound SuperEarth-sacks can be shipped anywhere in the USA, Canada, and Mexico.
