New Ground – Aerial Photos

The photo above was taken by our resident pilot in July 2018, for the next 6 weeks we had no rain yet the outfield was seeded.  Luckily the cricket square was laid in September 2017 and had plenty of time to establish.

What a different two months makes!  Lush outfield with a recently cut square.  The triangle lighter grass was caused from the water running off the square.  We are now in mid October and both the square and outfield are being cut weekly.
