This is how we build a TruRoll bocce court in Texas. Low maintenance and always ready for play.

We just installed a backyard bocce, (actually side yard). We used a rented sodcutter to remove the grass. Used paver base and decomposed granite. Simple, inexpensive, and a great improvement. Way more useful and less wasteful than the grass that was there before. So if you know you should get rid of your thirsty lawn, here is a fun alternative.
