Diamond Select 70/30 Clay Loam Mix Tips:

1.) Remember to condition your infield with soil amendments. We recommend using 20% by volume to see best results. Though our custom soil blends have been designed to meet a professional’s standards, conditioning your infield helps with moisture management, absorption, soil strength, and recovery.

2.) The final step in creating an all weather field, one that will allow play long after the other teams have gone home, is Top Dressing your infield with 1/4” of Calcined Clay or Diatomaceous Earth. Both products will help the surface of your infield retain moisture.

Recommended Application when renovating an infield:

Diamond Select 70/30 Clay 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%.
