Artificial Grass: To Plant Or Not To Plant

Homeowners who are deciding how to finish their yard and landscaping have numerous options. The choice between planting natural grass and installing artificial turf may come down to cost and the amount of work each type requires to keep it looking nice and well kept. You should weigh the pros and cons of each type of grass before making a decision. The choice may solely depend on the size of your lawn and how much time you have to maintain it.

Artificial Turf vs. Oyster Shells: Which One Is Better For Playing Bocce?

  
  
  
Artificial Turf for bocce ball

Bocce ball is a game that first originated in Italy, several centuries ago. It is similar to bowling and is performed on a large green, much like a putting green used in golf. Bocce courts are long and narrow. Widths can range anywhere from 10 to 13 feet and lengths from 60 to 100 feet. Most of the time the size is determined by the amount of space available to build the court. In other cases, it is personal choice.

Bocce Ball Surface Choices

One of the most important decisions to be made when installing a court is the type of surface that will be used. The two most common choices are bocce ball artificial turf and oyster shell powder. Bocce ball surfaces must be firm and smooth to allow the balls to roll freely and without any type of obstruction. The final decision will determine how much time you must spend maintaining the court and what type of preparation you will need to complete before having the court installed.

The style of play and frequency of court use will have a big impact on what type of surface you will want to install. If you are just playing for practice or your own enjoyment, you will want to go with a less expensive surface material. Maintenance will also play a role in your decision. On the other hand, if the court will be used for tournament play, you will probably want to spend the extra money and go with a top of the line material that will afford the best, most uniform play possible.

Oyster Shell

Oyster shell is not as common as it once was, although it is still in use in areas where a more traditional court is preferred. This kind of surface packs nicely and offers a smooth surface that can be raked and leveled between matches. The main problem is the amount of day to day maintenance the court will need, especially if it is played on regularly. The more a court is used, the tighter the shell will be packed. In some cases, new shell may need to be added as the old is broken down.

Artificial Bocce Ball Turf

Bocce ball turf made out of synthetic grass makes an ideal court surface. It looks and feels natural and maintains a constant height. Mowing a natural grass court can leave blades uneven and packed down upon one another. With artificial turf, they remain at a constant height and won't get matted down by tires or heavy foot traffic. You will not have to worry about a regular mowing or watering schedule and trimming is unnecessary.

Bocce ball turf must also be kept as dry as possible. Short of covering it the court with a tarp during a rainstorm, some moisture will be inevitable. The most important thing is to ensure the court remains as dry as possible, especially close to match time. Artificial turf drys much faster than other types of surface materials, including oyster shell. The nylon and monofilament fibers do not absorb water, however during construction drainage considerations should be made to avoid standing water and allow for drainage.
