rubber grinds is best done by hand. It is not possible to use a
drop spreader with rubber grinds as it is with most other infill
materials. The rubber crumb is too big for most drop spreaders and
has a tendency of clogging the spreader. However, due to its
characteristics it is much easier to disperse once it is on the

Position the wheelbarrow in a needed area, reach in with both hands
and grab as much as you can carry. Simply throw the rubber crumb
onto the turf until you have the entire area filled. You will want
enough infill material to fill in between the fibers without
completely covering the tips of the fiber. It is all right if some
areas have more infill than others at this point of the process.
You will be brushing the infill in with a power broom or stiff
bristle broom to even out the rubber grinds.
rubber grinds is a required step to work the infill down into the
fibers of the turf. It also helps disperse the infill and even out
the high spots created during the application of the rubber
Using a stiff
bristle broom, use short brisk strokes against the grain to work
the rubber down into the fibers and to the backing material.
Continue brooming until the blades are standing up and you have an

brooming until the blades are standing upright.
The final step
of the infill process is wetting down the turf with a garden hose.
This helps drop the infill material down into the fibers and to the
base. It also helps clean excess dust and debris left behind during
