Installation: 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 inc hes at a
20% volume:
9000 x 4 x 0.2/667 = 10.8 tons of TURFACE
