On private land it full go and get the backhoe if needed  ;D in parks I feel no one should make a plug as it only makes us all look bad when its not done right

Agreed! I use the Tyger cub to slice the turf in those areas we need to be careful and then a flat head srewdriver does the rest if they are down a little.

Happy Digging... In the correct manner.

I may be new to detecting but in some cases  you  need to dig even in a park (  use my tyger cub ) but I also make it as neat as posiable and I go out off my way to make the plug disappear as best the soil will let you and I do carry  a long bladed screwdriver  as well . So see you in the great out doors some time

Sounds like you are very responsible Roy
At worst a neat U shaped plug is all you need in suburbia , shovels belong in a paddock or the 
bush

At the end of the day if you need to use anything more than a probe - you should not be detecting in a public park   
In the past 10 yrs a probe is all I have used in parks.....

Above is a quote from Marty.....(Don't know how else to put it here)

I always use my probe on shallow targets in a park, but it's pretty useless on deep stuff. (Back in the 70's, we used screwdrivers.)

That's why diggers were invented.

Experienced detectorists  leave very little trace behind.

I don't dig dry parks.

All common sense, really....      ????
