DIY Dirt backyard basketball court
We made a very useable and fun basketball court made of dirt. Yes, best if you have a clay soil. Clear off the grass and rake down the lumpy spots. But it does self-level as you play. Yes, you have to wait a while after a rain but it dries fairly quickly. Before paying big bucks for concrete, give this a shot! My son loves this court and plays every day. You will be surprised. Dribbling is not an issue!
