  • Brush for xc jump- where to buy

    So I am going to make a jump that has brush on it. Where would I find a good source for the brush that won't break the bank?

    Think brush like this. (of course it is out of stock)

    Or the front part of this jump-it can be shorter brush

    The only place I've seen the boxwoods (top pic) is Christmas Tree Shops and they were about $5 per bush. Not cheap.

      Better than I was finding. It was going to be about $100+ for a training level sized arrowhead.

      I am thinking of using a few push broom heads. I think I can go that for about $40 or $50

        I know some people who get brush for their brush fences from the people who supply fake brush to the steeplechase tracks. I don't know the name of the suppliers, or the prices.

          I ordered from Ali Express and it was pretty close to the first link you showed. Bought 15 packs, which did a training level wedge (just front and back - not middle row) as well as a small skinny roll-top. Still have half left.

          With shipping it came to about $65 US and arrived (from China) in 2 packages within about 2 weeks.

            Hobby Lobby and Michaels both have artificial foliage. Couldn't say specifically if they have boxwood or not at your local stores (ours do). But if you have one locally, it wouldn't hurt to go look. They frequently have sales and closeouts and you never know what you might find.

              I will check out Michaels. We have a newer Hobby Lobby nearby but I won't support them for political reasons.

                So I went to the link and it asked me what I was searching for. I started with artificial and one of the choices was artificial breast and another was artificial vagina....hmmmmm.... nope. I did not click on those. But it does make one think why.

                  Check out Craigslist or Freecycle to see if someone is ditching an artificial Christmas tree. That should give you a fair amount of brush!

                    I have not been able to find those suppliers on the web. I am hoping somebody knows who supplies them.

                      Oh gosh - sorry! The link works for me, but maybe because I purchased it?!

                        I got a whole bunch of table top artificial Christmas trees and garland on close out at JoAnn Fabric right after the holidays. I know, not the right time of year now, but if you can wait they were great deals. Try other craft/Michaels and big box stores too.

                          Be careful with the artificial christmas trees - most have a wire as their core.
