Diamond Select 30/70 Sandy Loam Mix

Diamond Select 30/70 Sandy Loam Mix is a unique blend of sandy, silt, and that has been specifically designed for groundskeepers and coaches desiring high quality sandy loam infields. This soil mix will enhance the overall performance of any infield in wet regions. It is a quality soil for wet environments, customized to meet a groundskeeper’s expectations and level of play. Screened down to 3/16”, this soil offers higher performance in regions with more than 35” of annual rainfall.

Diamond Select 30/70 Sandy Loam Mix provides a quality playing surface to programs looking to increase the sand content of their infield. It is an excellent solution when trying to restore a clay based infield. With proper moisture management, this material will hold its shape and recover extremely fast. Though this blend was designed for restoring existing soils, it is an outstanding playing surface for any program in extremely wet environments.

Diamond Select 30/70 Sandy Loam Mix Tips:

1.) The most important aspect of maintaining a sand infield is moisture management. Even though
30/70 is meant to withstand extreme moisture, it will turn very soft during long dry periods.
2.) Remember to add amendments to your soil. Though our custom soil blends have been designed
to meet a professional’s standards, soil amendments assist with moisture management, absorption,
soil strength, and recovery.

Recommended Application when renovating an infield:

Diamond Select 30/70 Sandy Loam Mix should be put down to a depth of 3” – 6” on a
standard infield renovation. Once laid evenly, we suggest watering your infield with ½
inch of water, rolling it with a 1000 pound roller to achieve proper compaction, and then
laser grading it out at 1/2%.
