I have a small (20m x 60m) ring which until recently was bluestone dust. It was always hard and we dragged it with a rock rake.
Recently we got 1" of natural sand spread on top of the bluestone to make it softer. So now, the rock rake digs too deep (i guess) and starts pulling up mounds of sand.
My husband bought a drag mat which smooths baseball diamonds etc. I tried weighing it down with bricks:
Yard Tuff 5 ft. x 3 ft. Drag Mat at Tractor Supply Co.
Nothing seems to work. The rock rake and the smoothing drag (with bricks) both mound up piles of sand as they drag. What is the correct tool to drag a sand ring? The normal chain link type drag/harrow they sell at Tractor Supply?
Which is this:
Concord 6 ft. Drag Harrow at Tractor Supply Co.
My husband thinks this won’t work, but I see everyone using this.
