Players Choice DR Professional Grade 4.6 Infield Soil Mix™ is a premium, High-Clay soil blend, consisting of Players Choice Screened Red Clay, and USGA grade clean screened sand. Aesthetically it is a reddish brown in color with a deep brown hue when wet.
Players Choice DR Professional Grade 4.6 Infield Soil Mix™ provides a high quality playing surface, to those programs looking to increase their field’s bad weather playability and recovery. This surface works best in regions with less than 35” of annual rainfall. Though this premium blend can be used by all levels, it is best applied to high school, college, and higher levels of play.
Players Choice DR Professional Grade 4.6 Infield Soil Mix™ should be put down to a depth of 3” – 6” on a standard infield renovation. After applying your playing surface, we suggest watering your field with ½” – 1” of water, rolling it with a 1000 pound roller to achieve proper compaction, and then laser grading it out at 1/2%. The final step in creating an all weather field, one that will allow play long after the other teams have gone home, is to amend Infield Conditioner into the top 3”- 4” of your playing surface.
Players Choice DR Professional Grade 4.6 Infield Soil Mix™ will play at a professional level if programs have the ability to water on a managed basis, drag at least once per week, tarp when necessary, and use lightweight aggregates.
