Here's my question: What are the best steps?
Spread the mix, then nail drag it in, the roll it? Spread the mix, mat drag it to level it, then roll it? When you the spread the topping (Diamond Pro), do you want to roll it again?
Not sure if there is a preferred way.
Thanks for any input
Bringing in good infield dirt may be a misnomer.
Check to make sure, then check again, then verify.
In GOD we trust, all others, we verify.
Diamond Pro is great stuff, yet works much better if already been worked into the soil. The initial rake in, is entirely dependent on the quality of the dirt being brought in.
At a below miniscule budget, it took about
a decent 1 1/2 seasons to get the infield dirt and Diamond Pro decent for amateur play. (It was not the big leagues though). Also fixing low spots are major headaches.
