    Default Re-turfed the run for Spring 2011!

    And here it is in all it's glory.........Pea and Pod seem to like it and spent hours rearranging all the soil at the digging end (closest to the camera).

    It usually lasts 2-3 years before they dig it all away . It's just open wire over the top of the run so it gets plenty of daylight and rain. They don't tend to do their poops on the grass - you'll notice concrete down the right hand side and a litter tray top right hand corner. They do all their poops and wees either on the concrete or in the littler tray (closest to Flora and Parsnip's run ).

    Fortunately, the run is big enough that they don't kill the grass and they get a fair amount of time free-ranging in the garden too.

    This was it a few summers ago - you can see how long and green the grass gets......



    Although this was it two years ago - the last time I did a 'repair' job on the grass. Pea and Pod had spring fever and dug a wonderful tunnel under the turf - until it all collapsed in on them The soil is only about a foot deep and then you hit the underwiring. The bare patch in the centre of the photo is where they sit all the time.



    And this is it from a distance so you can see it's open to the elements at the top.......
