Our selection of ballyard materials is sure to meet your needs, whether you need to build a field from the ground up or simply want a fresh coat with a topdressing.

Kafka has standard, stabilized and wax polymer options for infields and warning tracks. All are made from our high-quality decomposed granite in a couple beautiful reddish brown colors. Here’s a brief overview of the differences between each to make your ball yard materials selection easy:

Standard Ball Yard Mix
Ideal as an infield’s fresh topdressing or as your warning track mix. Made from DG and crushed to a size that allows for maximum permeability and stability. The warning track mix is coarser than our Burma Red Infield Topdressing to give an extra “crunch” under foot.

Stabilized Ball Yard Mix
As premium derivatives of our standard ball yard mixes, this decomposed granite-based mix is pre-blended with a stabilizing organic binder. It retains moisture, requires less maintenance and virtually eliminates mud. Ideal for a new infield or warning track. Available in Burma Red, Red Cedar and Ruby Red Granite.

Wax Polymer Mix
Wax Polymer mix is ideal for the infield and warning track. Wax Polymer mix is made from Kafka’s standard Burma Red DG and a water-shedding wax polymer. This state-of-the-art mix renders fields waterless, dustless and mud-free. No need for watering and is crushed to the perfect size for stability and ball-hops.
