It requires a certain amount of effort and insight and as a result, homeowners may not have the time and resources to perform this job themselves.

WHAT’S TOP DRESSING

Beautifully cultured lawns require a thick base of soil that will encourage growth. This base can be tough to achieve if the grass has already been planted and is actively growing. Top dressing can be applied during any time of growth and is generally comprised of materials such as sand, loam and peat. We aerate areas of the soil that appear to be damaged or suffering to allow the roots of the new grass to take hold. All gardens are different, that’s why we assess your lawn and decide which specific dressing mixture will be used dependent on the soil conditions.

WHEN TO TOP DRESS

At Lawn doc, we recommend adding this dressing both in the early autumn and early spring. The reason that these seasons are critical is that the grass will need to grow a few more times before either severe heat or severe cold set in. By planning ahead, the chances of the grass subsequently dying are much less.
