I know they often use decomposed granite to make bocce courts.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The lady of the house is an avid bocce ball fan, and the composition of the back terrace is defined by a 60-foot-long bocce court. Spaces for lounging, gathering, eating and chatting surround this central space.
An all-gravel landscape works well with minimalist modern architecture, giving it the air of a Zen garden. Proper drainage is necessary to avoid the pooling of water in the court. Crushed gravel below the court's surface material will help.
