This bocce court provides another entertaining activity for family fun while reducing lawn size and water use. The retaining wall was set at 18-20-inch seat height to give players a place to rest during intensive matches of lawn bowling. The sloping garden is draped in ornamental grasses and climbing vines.
The ocean bluff side of the house is a narrow strip designed and installed with strictly low impact uses. A cantilevered deck, native plants, dry-laid pavers and a bocce court bring the living outside. On a clear day, the homeowners watch pelicans fishing, hang gliders drifting by at eye level and surfers in the white water from their breakfast table.
Sliding glass doors open right to the backyard, where concrete walls enclose a modern patio. Past the dining area and fire pit, guests will find a shed, raised garden beds, a greenhouse and even a bocce court!
A beautiful stone and oyster shell bocce court is a great addition to a backyard, adding a fun feature for outdoor parties. For extra style, this court is flanked on one side by topiary plants in large terra cotta pots and flowering plants on the other side.
