Bocce Court

Taking inspiration from the agrarian site and a rustic architectural vernacular this terraced hillside garden evolved in response to time and place. The design vision was to celebrate the site, preserve the oak trees, accentuate views and create opportunities for modern day recreation and play.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An active Christmas. Australian families often play backyard cricket after lunch on Christmas Day. While most of the adults sneek away for that highly desired after-lunch nap, a brave few will join the children and bowl a few "overs."On Boxing Day, more than 80,000 people show up at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to watch Australia play the first day of a four-day test match against an opposing international team. It's a huge event, and those who can't attend watch it on the television while eating leftover ham sandwiches. Cricket might not be your thing, but a delightful well-ordered pitch like this is the perfect spot for testing the boccie set you got from Santa.

Although we may not want to dedicate the space to a proper bocce court, this makes me feel that we should try to achieve a near-putting green levelness in the backyard behind the retaining wall. AGREE; CAN EASILY DO WITH LASER-LEVEL WHEN WE LANDSCAPE.

Bryna Howes added this to How to Bring the Aussie Spirit Into Your Space
June 22, 2014
Us Aussies love our sport, and quite often our motto is 'the bigger, the better.' Sadly, this doesn't always blend well with urban backyards – until now, that is. First things first: You set up a slice of your backyard to function as a seating area for barbecues and picnics. Then, with a few clever touches, you suddenly find that it doubles as a miniature cricket pitch. Your lunchtime barbecues with the family quickly turn into all-day matches, your kids have somewhere to run around with their friends, and best of all, you've made the most of your space by putting the fun into functional.
