Default Astro turf

Anyone recomebd somewhere get some Astro turf from ? I bought some of eBay couple weeks ago but when I had a look at some of the perch,s on other sites and pictures on here mine seems realy soft , some the pics on here look like the grass is plastic , mine has more of a fake Xmas tree feel to it ,,, does it make a differnce for goshawk perch want it to cover a screen perch and a raptor post

IMG_3720.jpg this is my stuff

Most pics I've seen are like this stuff , but it looks realy stiff plastic stuff , ( looks lot better than mine )

How much do you want? If it's just a bit you can get door mats from ikea it's identical to genuine Astro turf and it might be the stuff that is on Ben Long block perches. It's a lot cheaper than Astro turf and can get in various colours. Ian Garland sells it on ebay which is not bad if you want a few metres

The 82055 Astro turf mat. That works out at ú46 m2 so might as well get the genuine stuff
Ikea works out at ú17 m2. Even if buy a full roll of genuine AstroTurf it still doesn't get as cheap as that.
