Top Dressing Your Lawn

Top Dressing For Lawns

Top dressing your lawn is the practice of applying a 50/50 compost to soil mix in a very thin layer on top of your existing lawn or bare spots.  This helps improve the appearance of your lawn in multiple ways.  It can smooth out the surface of your lawn and fill in small dips and small humps or lumps.  It also provides optimal conditions for new seed and works to reduce thatch build-up by encouraging the left over grass clippings and organic debris to decompose faster.  Top dressing is a great addition to any lawn aeration or overseeding project as well.
