Boules is such a classic Garden game for hire.
All boules must be thrown from within the starting circle and with both feet on the ground. The player attempts to throw the boule so that it lands as close to the jack as possible it is okay to hit the jack. The player must remain inside the circle until the boule has landed.
Often seen played in France and Italy, it can be played on either hard soil or grass, but the balls do need to be able to travel.
