A deep frame of timbers contains packed gravel that supports the heavy clay of the bocce court and keeps it level. Composite decking on the inside face of the court resists dents, which a 2-pound bocce ball traveling at 10 mph will surely inflict on wood.

A bluestone walk surrounds the court and extends into a patio at one end with a teak bench for players and spectators under the maple trees. Along the side adjacent to the croquet lawn, 'Gold Mound' spiraea, six crabapple trees, and an 18-inch retaining wall create a clear demarcation.
