Rain Country Blend can be installed by most any competent person who understands the terms “level”, “plumb”, and “square” plus why they are important.
The image above was a brand new court in Tempe Arizona. Imagine what that court would look like in Washington, Oregon, or anywhere it actually rains.
The zero maintenance pitch translates to a bocce court with permanent defects.
A small imperfection due to a variation in the density of the turf or a “bubble” in self-leveled rubber will always affect the direction of the ball. Every game! The ability to fine-tune a natural court with minimal effort provides a superior ownership experience when compared to an expensive fake court. In fairness, synthetic courts seem to have superior qualities for many indoor applications due they are not affected by weather nor do they require occasional water to maintain bonding of the blend but we do not recommend them for outdoor use. There is not enough history to suggest with certainty the longevity one can expect from the modern synthetic bocce surfaces outside of a few warm weather climates.
In the photo above the lighter green turf court got too damp and sprouted moss. The homeowners association happily replaced the synthetic with Boccemon Rain Country Blend. A synthetic surface with fill could take a couple of years before the rot is evident but by then it is too late.
Our goal has always been to provide the best ownership value available in a natural bocce court surface. From Dubai to Costa Rica. Hawaii to Maine to Florida to California… people like Boccemon’s commitment to the player experience. The simple requirements of maintaining our court material are generally not considered burdensome.
