Top Dressing

Top dressing is the process of adding a thin layer of material over the surface of turf. A variety of materials can be used in a top dressing program including sand, soil, and compost, as well as mixtures of sand and composts. Adding materials in very thin layers over the surface of turf makes it possible to add organic amendments and gradually change the soil without disturbing the actively growing plants. Some benefits are:

1. Providing nutrients
2. Increasing organic matter
3. Improving soil structure
4. Reducing irrigation
5. Reducing thatch
6. Improving surface irregularities
7. Adding beneficial microbes
8. Reducing winter damage
9. Reducing weeds
10. Reducing nutrient losses to surface and ground water

Topsoil is an important aspect in garden growth, natural grass growth, and keeps your residental lawn or commercial lawn healthy.
