Building a mound

I’m planing on building one in my backyard can anyone give me some tips or instructions?

On August 7th, Roger made an outstanding post for your review. He also posted in that same response “here’s my bullpen”, which you might want to read also.

All in all, Roger has saved you a great deal of fact-finding on your own. His advice can save you time and money, not to mention a quality build.

Roger that mound is so nice I’d be afraid to put one cleat mark in it! :lol:

Wow :shock: that’s nice!

Great job. 8)

Thanks, 101. Actually, pitchers wear cleats on it all the time and I don’t have to do much more that rake up a litttle loose dirt and tamp it down a bit. The Hilltopper soil not only sheds water but it seems to resist getting dug out. I might get a little divot right in front of the rubber but that’s it. It’s very maintenance-free. Over a year later and the mound still looks just as good.
