The Bocce Court Source

Pacific Pearl Bocce Surface--US Patent No.: US 9,539,490 B2

Our proprietary alternative to the old organic materials is our hybrid Pacific Pearl Bocce Surface System which incorporates a fibered synthetic medium, an organic sub angular cushioning layer, and our hand blended oyster shell play layer direct from the San Francisco bay. This surface has a natural organic look with the benefits of virtually no maintenance, a consistent play surface, and no dust. Your only job will be filling a wine glass as you backspin the perfect bocce shot!

Pacific Pearl Fiber Layer

Natural Bocce fiber layer:

Once the border type is selected and constructed and the French drain and resilient base layers are placed, it’s time for the Pacific Pearl Bocce Surfacing System to be installed. Our proprietary tan fibered base layer is a custom fibrillated weather treated poly fiber with a combination dual poly fabric and urethane backing custom perforated for correct drainage. The spacing of these fibers is critical to the “locking” function of the system which allows for continued play without raking, rolling, hydrating or brooming. All our fibered layers are manufactured in 12’ widths to accommodate most bocce ball court dimensions (custom wider widths are available). Unlike the synthetic lawn products used for synthetic lawns which are green and have various fiber structures which collapse over time and are not engineered for locking a cushioned mid layer of sub angular sands and a final layer of oyster shell blend, the Pacific Pearl Bocce Surface duplicates and even improves ball roll, ball deadness without looking like a plastic lawn. We make sure you get at least a 97% relax value on the product before installing the mid layer materials. The top oyster blend surface further gives this system its Old World look and the play unparalleled in the sport of bocce.

Pacific Pearl Mid Cushion Layer

Mid Sub-Angular Cushion Layer:

After the synthetic fibered layer is installed, the next step is to place the mid sub-angular cushioned layer specifically designed to lock the system together and virtually eliminate ball roll marks, dents, divots or other “tracers” that reduce the ability to roll the ball with any consistency. Of course all bocce courts built will have subtle movements from hand spin, various slopes or small elevation changes but you don’t want your bocce ball to be rolling in the last player's roll line….the bocce gods would frown from above! Once placed evenly throughout the bocce court, this material must be power-broomed in place to lock it into the synthetic fibers. Additional material may be added before the final playing surface is installed.



Finished Custom Blend Oyster Layer

Oyster Blend Custom Finish Layer

Once the mid layer is installed, compacted and power broomed into place, the final 3/8” of our special oyster flour, crushed carpenter oyster blend is applied evenly across the surface. It is critical to make sure each layer of this system is installed level and consistent starting with the underlying base materials.
