Proposition No. 1
Proposition No. 2
Required dimension: 10 to 15 x 4 to 5 minimum meters in a sunny place, but not too much and on flat ground.
1: The earth fits about 20 cm deep and remove it.
2: Put a geotextile felt that will prevent the growth of herbs (they sell it in DIY stores).
3: Delimit the playing surface protected by felt.
4: Put inside the hole (gravel 0/20: 1t700 / m3; about 18.7 euros per ton). A height of 10 cm is sufficient. Level it roughly. If you are afraid that your frame will not withstand the pressure of the leveling, you can compress it with your foot, or use a portable vibratory compactor, (Rana type model VC-5000, the rent is about 50 euros / day.)
5: Coat this layer of gravel (0 / 4 gravel: 1t600 / m3; about 4º, 5 euros per ton). With a layer of 3cm is enough. Level the layer with a rake and a ruler, or a large board. Compress it again as in the previous stage.
6: Pass a rake to erase the traces of the compactor and highlight some gravels. To get the gravel contact a quarry or warehouse of construction material near your home. It must be said that the supply and transportation can cost us from 150 to 200 euros.
ATTENTION in your forecasts, because on the one hand it will be for the budget, but also for your small muscular arms, because you have to move between 6 and 7 tons, and everything in wheelbarrow; Your arms and back will remember. (It is possible that he abhors petanque between the paths and the shovels) Just kidding. It took 2 and a half days to do everything, but without relaxing. And I am very happy to be done, but there is still a bit to train, it needs to dry.
