About a week ago I asked for some pointers on how to make a grass display base in "Plane Talking". You HyperScalers came to my rescue once again and I got a lot of tips and helpful advice, thank you so much. It's worth gold to someone fairly new to the hobby like myself.

One tip that stuck with me was that of Walt Babst about how to make a cheap (mine came out to $15) DIY static grass applicator Below are the results of my first attempt and my home made applicator.
The base is a tile of dark cork. I used a mix of sand and my wife's cacti potting mix as a base layer for the grass.
The grass is mixed 2mm winter grass with 2mm & 6mm spring grass.

I'm ok with the result but suggestions on how to improve it is always appreciated.
