Har-Tru, commonly known as Clay is in fact not a clay product at all. Har-Tru is 92% finely crushed green Precambrium Metabasalt and 8% Gypsum which is added for better binding qualities.
Har-Tru tennis courts are built on a suitable stone base usually 5" thick and surrounded with a brick edge to retain the surface materials. The Har-Tru is then installed in a 1 1/4" lift followed by repeated watering and rolling. Not many individuals will take on the challenge to install their own court but, it is possible with some construction background.
Har-Tru tennis courts are one of the neediest surfaces and require a good maintenance program. The surface requires weekly, if not daily attention with watering, rolling and sweeping depending on play. New material must be installed on a regular basis throughout the year as well as a fall and spring tune up usually consisting of a ton or more of new material per court. Playing lines are installed as tapes, 2" white plastic strips nailed into the surface with aluminium nails.
If you can do a little work before you play each time, you'll love the unmatched feel and slide characteristics of a Barber built Har-Tru tennis court.
