Leveling your lawn

Tiny calcined clay particles of sports field conditioner are an ideal leveling agent or top dressing for lawns. Used to level low spots in the lawn these porous chips drain much faster than sand. Calcine clay chips also have much more volume than sand particles of equal weight. Comparing these two as leveling agents, you will need one half as much Turface MVP Field Conditioner to provide the same amount of fill space. Calcine clay chips absorb water into microscopic pores much like a sponge and slowly release moisture to the root zone, while sand has no absorption ability. Unlike organic leveling materials, such as top soil or compost, calcine clay is 100% weed-free. These calcine clay particles will stay in place and add stability to the soil. Also, it will not breakdown, studies have shown calcine clay deteriorates only 3% over 20 years.
