Im trying to build one in the high desert right now (phelan/victorville area)haha, im gonna be making a speedball type field out of some plywood, bales of straw and a couple inflatable bunkers. My dimensions are 125'x65'. With that much land you could make a pretty awesome field ha.

make two-by-four rectangles then make them have chicken wire across the front.it works really well and is pretty cheap, or if you use 2x6s its the cost of two 9ft 2x6s and 3$ or chicken wire

Yeah the tarp one is a good idea, we were gonna do that for ours but we want a really clean look. I have about an acre to do mine on, your lucky you could do multiple fields. Like maybe do a little speedball one then do another for scenario type games with trenches and fake buildings and stuff. That would be pretty cool.

You could leave the bushes and stuff or if you pull them out you can always stack them up and make a bunker out of them too haha. I did that with a bunch of dead joshua trees on my old field.

Like you mean paint? In the desert the dirt covers the paint really fast haha. Turns bright red paint brown within a couple days haha. It could pose a fire hazard though.
