Crave Worthy: A Backyard Bocce Court

I've recently become a bocce fanatic — I'm even in a league. It's the ultimate social game because anyone of any age or skill level can play. So, when I saw this backyard bocce court at Ceja Vineyards, I nearly died and went to heaven. I'd kill to have one installed at my house. You can build your own by picking up perimeter and base materials locally and a crushed oyster shell blend from Boccemon for as little as $595, which is still an investment. To have a court professionally built, it could cost between $18,000-$35,000. Yikes, right? For now, I'm happy to play on uneven grass in my backyard or local park. Divits, wet soil, and other natural elements may leave things slightly out of control for the players, but I'm not in it for the competition. Would you like one built at your home?

Yeah, a pool in it's place is better if you don't already have a pool.

i'd rather have a swimming pool in this space. especially for the money. if i could afford that amount i think i'd rather have a tennis court too while i'm at it :) you'd get so bored of this game wouldn't you?
