    Check Pottery Barn for outdoor curtains

    I've been seeing painters canvas drop cloths for outdoor application. They are neutral and come with a great choice of lengths. They are 100% cotton and I recommend washing them first

    looks great. I like to brick border. Any issues with cracking the brick or bocce balls during play?

A perimeter curb will keep balls in play. One that is built 6 to 18 inches high out of cast concrete, bricks or blocks will do.The structure adjacent to this playing area offers a luxurious spot for resting between games, turning this backyard into an oasis.

Becky Harris added this to Landscape Trends: Bocce Ball CourtsApr 18, 2011

Playing a primitive form of bocce goes all the way back to the Egyptians in 5000 B.C. Doesn't this fancy covered patio with the curtains seem like someplace a modern-day Cleopatra could sit and watch the sport?

A bocce ball court for Ben would be nice...
