A loam with a typical clay content of between 25-28%, Club loam is used at clubs that need a true firm pitch but do not have the resources to cope with the higher clay content of our ‘County Loam’.
Boughton Loam pitches are renowned for being free draining which enables quick easy pitch preparation along with fast grass seed germination. For construction projects Boughton Loam can be screened at 10mm to facilitate being used as a base loam so reducing costs when the construction is greater than 75mm in depth.
To finish of your project or for the construction of pitches of less than 75mm in depth Boughton Loam can be screened at 3mm to give a smooth level finish.
We have a very good relationship with Boughton. They’re very helpful and full of good advice. The cricket ground is set in a beautiful location and we aim to maintain it to the highest possible standard – and we put that down to hard work and Boughton Cricket Loam
