Question
Good afternoon!
I am building a bocce court, and am looking for a source for the shells. I can pick them up anywhere in the NJ/Hudson Valley area. Please help!
Thanks- Matthew

Answer
This question came up in 2011.  Here where two who responded to my answer back then:

I HAVE PLENTY OF CRUSHED SHELLS LOCATED IN VIRGINIA BEACH CALL ME @ 757-572-3477

I don't know if either are still around but give them a call.  Neither are in the NJ/Hudson Valley area.  
If cost is too high for these vendors, to your local landscape materials supplier, and ask them for a source closer to you. In NJ, I "googled" about 9.

Hope it helps! ~Marc

I am a licensed Landscape Architect. I can answer general questions about style and design, give you ideas and suggestions for site amenities, help with larger site-planning issues, or perhaps give guidance for recreational amenities & park design. IF YOU ARE GOING TO ASK FOR A PLANT SUGGESTION GO HERE: http://www.growit.com/PlantInfo/LandScape.htm I prefer you ask somebody else why your petunias are not as perky as they should be; I'd LOVE to tell you how those petunias can increase your home's value!

20+ years of working with homeowners, contractors, developers and local civil engineering/architecture firms. I am located in the dry Great Basin area (Greater Nevada/Utah), so the use of landscape materials OTHER than plants is emphasized.
