Field of dreams? Not quite.

New page up.  Field of dreams? Not quite.  Find the link at the top of the page.

As an update, some initial investigation concerning prices of sod was quite depressing.  The area involved is about 35 by 40 meters.  That amounts to 1400 square meters (just under 13,000 square feet). Sod is sold here in 1 meter squares.  From the source, a sod farm, it seems the cost is about $1.75 per square meter.  Ouch.  $2,450.  Since the ground is nothing more than dry grey sand, we also need to add about 420 cubic meters of soil (35 by 40 by .3).  I’m afraid to find out the cost of that.  We may need to go to seeding instead of sod.  Would love to hydro seed but not something I have seen here so doubt it is available.  It seems we might be looking at about $4 to $5k for this project.  Time will tell.  One thing we definitely know is that the benefits to these children, who are confined to the grounds when not in school, far outweigh the cost.
