Top Dressing

Top dressing is a very useful tool in our arsenal. Top dressing can be light or heavy, coverall or specific, when a lawn has been aerated, overseeded or just on its own.

Top dressing is a mixture of sand and soil usually 70-80% sand and the rest soil. When spread over thatch it helps to dilute the thatch and encourages new growth. 

After aeration it can become a great aid to root growth creating vertical holes filled with an easily penetrated media.

 If you need to level out deep profiles in the lawn it may better to use a more soil rich media and overseed it.

Top dressing is much more effective being used little and often.
