When newly installed the court has a “fluffy” texture. When wet it runs faster than when dry. In most climates after a few weeks the blend begins to “cure” which ultimately binds to the road base beneath. As the flour compacts there is less “fluff” to broom about and the balls roll faster. The fluff is what makes maintaining the court such a breeze. Had you watched the
that came with the surface you would be collecting the material that accumulates at the court ends in buckets for these times, in which case simply dump half a bucket onto the court and broom it. At some point the surface becomes compacted and it seems there is nothing left to broom around. Once the “patch” buckets are empty many think they require more material.
This is likely NOT the case. The original Boccemon court went for 10 years before we added more material. Eventually the surface compaction, moisture, chemistry, and heavy use) renders the
7’ nylon broom
“seemingly” useless. There is no fluff to move around! We are happy to sell you more Rain Country Blend when you need it but many won’t “need” it yet.
