Lawn Top Dressing: How Topdressing Can Improve The Lawn Health, Drainage, & More

Top dressing

When Oxford home or commercial property owners need services like lawn top dressing, they rely on Organic Lawn Solutions, LLC. We're the trusted experts offering premium lawn care services to improve the look and condition of your lawn. We use services like top dressing and lawn aeration to enhance the conditions of your soil and roots to promote healthy growth.

Lawn top dressing spreads a thin layer of organic material over the surface of your lawn to help with amending your soil. It's common to focus on problematic, bare spots or cover the entire lawn.

We work with each client to determine the condition of their lawn and find out more about the goals for their yard. This information enables us to make the best choices for services and treatments for each property, including whether or not top dressing will be effective.

Topsoil Application To Remedy Lawn Problems

Analyzing individual needs for lawn care for Oxford properties starts with services like soil testing. With that information, or once we see and assess problem areas with your yard, we can recommend specific services to help improve the lawn. The goal is to accomplish more than have your grass survive; we want it to thrive.

Lawn top dressing is an ideal application for resolving lawn issues, and some of the benefits include the following:

  • Enhance soil aeration
  • Break apart thatch
  • Levels lawn
  • Add enriching soil microbes
  • Improve soil quality
  • Assists seed germination

With routine top dressing, it's usually appropriate to do the entire yard every few yards, emphasizing trouble spots in between - partner with Organic Lawn Solutions, LLC for high-quality care and optimal results.

Making Top Dressing Work For Your Yard

There are three primary materials used for top dressing:

  1. Topsoil - Helps with more ground coverage for smoothing things out but lacks significant organic materials.
  2. Sand - Commonly used in commercial applications and is ideal for improving drainage.
  3. Compost - A perfect choice for all soil types and applications.

In many instances, a combination of the three is the more effective approach to take. This process is also used in conjunction with services like fertilizer but should be done a few weeks later. Knowing how, when, and why is our job, which is why it makes more sense to work with lawn care pros for the best plan of action.
