How much Sand does my turf require?
It depends on pile height and the turf gauge but as a general rule of thumb make your sand height 60% of the pile height.

How do you apply the Sand to your turf?
If you purchase the damp sand you will need to dry it in sun before being able to use a drop spreader, fertiliser spreader, a leaf blower or stiff broom to effectively distribute it across the lawn. The kiln-dried silica sand is definately the most convenient sand to use but it is also the most expensive. And although the other sands are half the price they do require curing in the sun to make them dry enough to spread over the lawn.
