Step 3: Build the Court

On the final day, tile the court's surface by carefully following provided instructions, erect the standards, finish landscaping, mow the lawn, and clean up the yard. The tiles interconnect to make for easy installation and are easy to decorate with your favorite team logo. Erect the support posts, attach the backboard, and hang the net. Always mow your grass with a sharp blade. Dull edges will tear the grass instead of cutting it, and can allow for disease to enter the grass and cause it to turn brown and eventually die.
