Well my friends, we have run into a bunch of problems with the sports court.
I've decided I just want to have a hopscotch for my entry instead. (hee,hee)
First off, the company we ordered from (Flex Court - NOT impressed with them) took 12 weeks to even deliver the court. This was 4+ weeks longer than quoted. Secondly, they told us that the court would work over a mixture of compacted gravel (6" sub grade with 3/4 minus to be exact) that was not true and third, after all that, they sent us the wrong rebounder net. /-:
So, if any of you out there reading this post thinking about installing a court using the sports tiles, especially when it's for pickleball, you HAVE to put the tiles over a concrete slab, believe me.....it's not going to work (bounce right) any other way. :-)
Anyways, we are now WAY behind scheule because we have to wait to get a concrete slab put in. (Ummmm, concrete is SO stinkin expensive!)
Some day, I will show you a beautiful sports court but it might be a while. Such is life! :-)
I did find a great place to put our new hammock though, but it involved a plane ticket and the concrete pad just ate up that money so, never-mind. (yes, I am laughing) :-) :-)
Maybe it will make it easier on my husband if I custom design this sand station for him to work in. That way he can just pretend he's somewhere tropical while saving up for the concrete :-) :-)
Can't you just feel it all squishy between your toes? Almost like Hawaii :-)
I DO realize this post is ALL over the place but I know you guys still like me. (hopefully - hee,hee)
Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend!
My eldest daughter and her cousin.
My youngest! The "awe" of the glowing sparkler!
