STEP 5 SQUARES: Secure & Infill  

It is recommended to use landscape nails (5" or 6" length) and nail every turf corner.  When nailing, be sure to spread the turf fibers away from the nail head so it doesn't fold over a clump of fibers. Carefully trim any loose black fibers from the bottom backing that pop up throughout the process as needed.

NEXT, Infill Play Sand SLOWLY by hand. Add some sand  by broadcasting onto the turf squares against the grain of fibers, 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. You should be adding between 1/2" inch to 3/4" of an inch of sand throughout.  Repeat this step until desired finish & firmness is achieved.

You can use a leaf blower to help disperse any clumps and to help with 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.
