Improve Soil Quality for a Green Lawn
Golf course managers know that topdressing is one of the most impactful actions you can take to improve the health of your turf. They have been doing this to golf courses since the sport was invented back in Scotland.
Our lawn topdressing service produces lush, green lawns!
What is Topdressing?
Topdressing the lawn is the process of applying compost over the surface of the lawn. Compost is inexpensive and very effective to make your lawn green quickly.
An annual application of nutrient-rich organic material promotes healthy root and soil structure by:
- infusing the soil with beneficial microbes and essential minerals
- increasing soil aeration
- improving drought resistance
- relieving compaction problems
It is ideal for improving poor soil quality.
What is in our Topdressing?
Nutrient-rich organic matter. The soil mix we currently use is 60% turkey compost, 35% crushed pine and 5% sphagnum peat moss.
We believe that a high amount of organic matter adds essential nutrients to your existing soil.
This helps build up the soil flora and adds the right biological components for a healthy lawn year round.
What are other benefits of Topdressing?
Helps to Level your Lawn
We use professional topdressing machines to make sure there is an even layer spread across your yard. The evenness of the layer ensures that the lawn is getting an adequate amount of topdressing everywhere. This makes your lawn easier to manage and more eye-catching.
Improves Soil Drainage
Sand and compost components help reduce soil compaction that is caused by clay soil. This will increase water drainage in your yard to prevent water from just sitting on the surface. This will help your lawn retain water and therefore, grow to levels it hasn’t been to before. As you know, water is very good for maintaining a healthy lawn and the more water that penetrates the soil, the better off your lawn, no matter what type it is.
