Bales are compacted and  wrapped with wire. Clip the wire and remove from work area immediately. There are two ways to decompress the bales: a manure spreader or by hand.

Calculate the area and bales needed for the first half of install. Load into the manure spreader (you may need to do this several times). Distribute evenly over the surface as the spreader breaks apart the large chunks.
