Building your own board using paving slabs:
We recommend concrete paving slabs 455 x 455 mm. Can be bought from most building material supply stores at about R32 each (May 2017).
This makes the board size around 4.11 x 4.11 m with 10 mm grout between slabs.
A series of photographs showing the process:
We recommend painting only the dark squares as the light or white will show the dirt fairly quickly. Roofpaint directly onto the cement slabs works well and two coats are recommended.
Painting is recommended after the cement has been allowed to dry. Full strength is achieved after a week or so and some light watering can be applied.
(Although the squares in our series of photographs are already painted, this is not recommended. These were painted because we had used them for a temporary board at an outdoor expo)

Slabs and Grass Board:
This is a beautiful board but we suggest you go with artificial grass if you choose this one. Otherwise you'll end up with yellow patches everywhere.............
