St Austell DMC spent out some money earlier in the year on second hand AstroTurf. We have a serious rabbit problem....the little blighters keep digging large scrapes all across the patch and it was getting worse.

This weekend we all got organised and with the help of Morcom Construction who lent us the telehandler and 7 weeks of dry weather. The ground was ideal...rock hard. We fly off an old mica dam (in the heart of the China Clay area ) and there is barely an inch of soil on which moss grows....and damn all else.

We laid an AstroTurf strip a few years ago for exactly the same reasons. We were lucky enough to get ours for free but then paid to have it laid. Best thing we ever did, good luck with yours!

That's looking good. Even I should be able to land on that.
