Boughton Cricket Loams for County, Club and School Pitches
Boughton is one of the UK’s leading producers of cricket loams and dressings producing nearly 180,000 x 25kg bags of dressing in 2016 alone. Manufacturing cricket loams for nearly 30 years ensures a consistent cricket loam that can be relied upon.
All of Boughton’s cricket loams (County, Club, Kettering, Mendip and Kaloam) produce quality, hard, consistent, pitches with good bounce and carry.
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.
When dressing cricket pitches after play has ceased, Boughton loam produce various dressings to enable consistent compatibility with the original cricket loam used.
Boughton Loam dressings are guaranteed dry to enable easy spreading either by hand or through mechanical spreaders.
Boughton Loams can be sterilised to stop the importation of weed seeds and soil-borne fungi which can develop into fairy rings.
Whether constructing or reconstructing a cricket square, Boughton Loam can be supplied loose in tipper lorries or bagged-in-bulk (builders) bags and delivered throughout the UK.
Boughton has replaced the previous loam used on the square and has received great accolades from both players and officials cumulating in the award of 3 commendations from the ECB
