Turface Athletics MVP is an infield conditioner composed of large particles that you can use as a topdressing to help create an excellent and level playing surface. This also helps improve native soil for turf renovations, as well as prevent rain outs. It holds water, air, and nutrients at the root zone and improve water drainage. This is very ideal on maintaining a smooth, playable, and cushioned surface for the player's safety. It also minimize infield compaction that can cause sliding, running, and bad ball hop injury. Each bag contains 50 pounds of high-quality conditioner.
Use the following formula to determine the amount of Turface to incorporate into the skinned infield mix. Infields should be amended at 15% to 20% by volume, 4 inches deep.
Turface tons required = area x depth of incorporation (in inches) x desired % of Turface (20% = 0.2)/667
For example: To determine the amount of TURFACE required to amend an infield skinned area of 9000 sq. ft. at a depth of 4 inches at 20% volume:
9000 x 4 x 0.2/667 = 10.8 tons of TURFACE
I use Turface for amending potting soil and for making a succulent soil mix. Was always buying small baggies until I found this site. Good price on the Turface plus free shipping! Best deal on the Internet. Got the Turface in about 4 days. I'll order from this site again.
Surface provide structure and porosity similar to perlite but without the unfortunate tendency of perlite to float to the surface of the soil when water is added.
Potting soil for plants that will not be repotted for a considerable time must have structure (presence of additives that don't break down) and retain its ability to be porous so that air can penetrate.
i first learned about turface from bonsai growers on ebay.encourages tiny roots.i still didnt connect the dots that it was designed for sports feilds.i bet it works great in that aspect because it sure does for me just mixing into bonsai soil or all potted plants.this company delivered my purchase very quickly every time i ordered and sent communication when mail was a little late one time.excellent service.thanks very much,AlBlood

Yes, Turface Athletics MVP can be used before reseeding your lawn. It is recommended that you till the area and use the Turface Athletics MVP first. You are able to reseed right after this application has been done.
When would it be best to apply Turface Athletics MVP to my lawn to get the best benefit from it?
I live in Montana and my clay soil is suffocating my lawn causing it to die. I need help right away to turn the tide.
