What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Landscape Trends: Bocce Ball Courts
The primary colors of the bocce balls stand out here against the desert color palette of the rest of the landscape.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Spring and Summer Party Checklist
Yard games. While you may want to leave the lawn darts in the garage, everything else is fair game. Bean Bag and Washer Toss have seemed to be quite popular lately, but it may be nice to mix it up with some badminton or bocce ball. It's easy to keep guests entertained when there are multiple games set up throughout the yard.
Houzz added this to Decomposed Granite
A bocce ball court can be made very level with compacted decomposed granite. More: 5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rockin' Landscape
If artificial turf isn't your style, but you want a surface you don't need to water, look for a ground material that will provide minimal bounce. Decomposed granite, sand or crushed oyster shells are all options that do not require water. These are especially appropriate for arid climates and for re-creating an authentic Italian villa feel.
