A new court in Santa Fe, NM

Our friend Lew thought it was high time to build his own terrain in his backyard in Santa Fe.

Here's his report and pictures.
Thanks a lot, Lew, for sharing these.

It took about 18 tons of crusher fines ($275), 5 hours of work with a bobcat ($325), and about $270 of pressure treated lumber, 4 by 4 and 4 by 6 all 8 feet in length.
I bought some pikes and nails and a battery driven drill for the 3/8 inch by 12 inch spikes. So altogether about $950, and two weekends.
We are having lots of fun, and of course I get to practice more. We have fun pick up games in the afternoon and evening.
At the moment it is a hard surface, with the balls having a long roll. As the small stones work their way to the top it will be different I am sure.
