One of the specialty services Hummer Turfgrass Systems employs is complete renovations of baseball and softball infields. A total rebuild consists of removing old infield mix and rootzone and bringing in new materials from the ground up, laser grading, and sod installation. If a field’s turf has been maintained properly, a new infield will make a field play like new again.
The importance of the skinned area is evident by the fact that 90% of the game is played on this part of the field. At Hummer we use knowledge of the game and experience playing at the division one level to provide our customers with a surface that plays like a champion. We use precision laser grading and our reverse tine Blecavator to renovate infield surfaces and remove the lips that build up over time. We also construct and renovate pitching mounds and home plate areas to the specifications of the level of play.
Infields are the focal point of baseball & softball fields, why not have them look their best? With our expertise, equipment and latest engineered soils we are able to take you infield to the next level. Some of the options for infield improvement include:
- Complete or partial infield reconstruction (laser grading, irrigation, drainage, sodding, modifying infield mix and fixing existing field edges)
- Infield skin renovation (testing of existing infield mix, blending amendments, laser grading and infield conditioner)
- Pre or Post season maintenance (measure bases, remove edges, precision edge, laser grade)
- Pitchers Mound or Home Plate Installation (confirm height and slope of mound, install new clay)
