Top Dressing ServiceTopdressing consists of applying a layer of soil, sand, compost, or a mixture thereof to turf grass. Top dressing is applied in layers ranging from 1/16 – 1/2 inch at a time, generally once every growing season.
Lawns require topdressing to maintain a uniform surface, which is helpful for drainage. Often times, these materials act as a soil amendment as well and are a practical method for leveling out dips and ruts.
Other benefits of top dressing include:
- Excellent for drought conditions, and acts like a mulch to help retain moisture
- Ideal for poor soils lacking in essential nutrients and organic matter
- Helps diseased lawns by promoting soil organisms that fight plant disease
- Supports seeding by ensuring good seed-to-soil contact while retaining moisture
- Helps to control and reduce thatch by producing new soil through accelerated thatch decomposition
- Composted top dressing provides nutrients and helps soil retain and release nutrients
- Improves the turf root system and aids in improving poor soil structure
