Diamond Select 60/40 Professional Infield Mix

Diamond Select 60/40 Professional Infield Mix is a unique blend of clay, silt, and sand that has been specifically designed for groundskeepers and coaches desiring clay based infields. This soil mix will enhance the overall performance of any infield without turning too hard. It is the ultimate soil for dry environments, customized to meet a professional groundskeeper’s expectations and a higher level of play. Screened down to 3/16”, this soil offers higher performance in regions with less than 25” of annual rainfall.

Diamond Select 60/40 Professional Infield Mix provides a professional playing surface to programs with the ability to take care of it. Once compacted, this material will become very firm and will hold its shape until over-saturated with moisture. With proper moisture management, this material will play like a major league surface. Though this blend was designed for Colleges and Professionals, it is an outstanding playing surface for any program in a dry environment.

Diamond Select 60/40 Professional Infield Mix Tips:

1.) The most important aspect of maintaining a clay infield is moisture management. Even though 60/40 is meant for dry environments, without proper moisture management it will turn very hard 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 60/40 Professional Infield 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%.
