    Evening all,

    can anyone recommend a wind break that we can use on hard standing pitches?

    Cheers

    When we were in Spain we watched the locals pour water onto the ground and it softened it enough to get poles in. (y)

    Thanks all for your replies,

    I have tried creating a pilot hole with an awning peg but just ended up with a small crater:( then stopped digging before
    any badgers moved in. May try a cordless (if I remember to take it).

    Cheers

    A cheap gazebo with a side wall or two? Held down with sand bags or big water bottles. Or... just enjoy the outdoors or move inside or the other side of the MH. :)

    Breaking wind on hardstanding is better than grass as it does not hang around.
