STEP 5 STRIPS: Infill  

Adding infill sand helps to weigh down the turf, adds stability, helps prevent turf fibers from flattening or crushing and adds ballast. NEXT, add Infill Sand (Silica 20/40 or Envirofill 16/30 size) SLOWLY by hand. Add 2 to 4 lbs per square foot of turf depending on your turf height & density. Add sand  by broadcasting along the grid lines in either direction, then brush sand against the fiber direction until it stands up evenly and sand is dispersed and not clumped. Be careful not to be too heavy handed (too much / too fast) and bury any fibers which will create an uneven surface. The amount of sand will vary by the turf height and weight. Please call or email for assistance if needed. Repeat this step until desired finish & firmness is achieved.

You can use a shop vac to suck up and re-use any sand and a leaf blower to help disperse any clumps and to help with final clean up.  Lightly spraying with water will also help to seat in the sand once completed. Rain will help this process as well.  You may need to apply sand in a few applications as it settles and you may lose some material with rain over time.
