Homewood Flossmoor

HF - Final surface prep

Incorporating final amendments

Flossmoor, Illinois  Working in a joint effort with “The Friends of Homewood Flossmoor,” Lohmann Sports Fields completed a renovation of the infield at the Homewood Flossmoor baseball field. After the “Friends” removed the existing sod, LSF fixed several bird baths and removed extra mix that had accumulated on the field, holding water after small rainfalls and making the field unplayable. Both the infield and warning track were laser graded to drain correctly, the mound and home plate reconstructed, and sod relaid by “Friends.” The new field was tested soon after completion by a large rain storm, and it drained perfectly, allowing the game to be played without delay.

“From our first meeting with Lohmann, we were impressed with their knowledge and expertise in baseball field construction. Lohmann delivered the job on time and budget. Throughout the winter and early spring months there was not one puddle anywhere on our infield. I will absolutly turn to Lohmann again for our future projects.”
