I don't know where these came from. An online search of large chess pieces, garden chess set, or giant chess set will come up with a number of choices at several price points. Here are some search results: http://www.chesshouse.com/Giant_Chess_Set_Combo_p/e052.htm http://www.wayfair.com/Kettler-USA-Large-Chess-Pieces-218707-KT1335.html http://app.thechessstore.com/ http://www.cnchess.com/en/garden_chess_set.html
etc...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A checkerboard driveway serves as a chessboard. I suppose the players just need to be sure no one needs to back out of the garage midgame.
Finally, the other side of the garage offers more play space in the form of a giant chessboard. "The chessboard idea was sparked from something I saw in a landscape book and one I'd seen at an upscale outdoor shopping mall," says the homeowner. "My kids had just begun to get into chess, and I thought it would be a fun element to add to the yard. I wanted to make it subtle, kind of like a surprise, and our landscaper did a great job with it."More:8 Tips for Pool House PerfectionHouzz Tour: A Tale of Two Pool Houses
You can also apply this idea to pavement. Alternate concrete or slate square tiles in the driveway so you can play when the mood strikes without committing to a precision lawnmower.See more oversize chess sets
