Lawn Top Dressing

Lawn Top Dressing

What is Lawn Top Dressing?

We apply lawn top dressing to lawns in order to level out any unevenness on the surface. The nutrients in the dressing also help the germination of new grass seeds if they have been used.  We normally apply lawn top dressing during Autumn or Spring and it is included in our lawn service packages. We generally choose a good quality organic top dressing; this is a good opportunity to get some organic matter into the soil.

How we apply it

1. Before application

Before we start to apply the top dressing, we prepare it by scarification and aeration. These two processes ensure that the top dressing can thoroughly penetrate the lawn.

2. Choose the top dressing

We usually choose an organic top dressing to help build up organic matter in the soil. Lawn top dressings are commonly made of a mixture of sand and loam in a variety or proportions.

3. Calculate the amount required

The amount required will depend on the size and condition of the lawn.

4. Apply it

We apply the top dressing using a wheel barrow starting at one end and spread the dressing equally across the expanse of lawn.
