Residential Lawn Top Dressing Services

Have weeds and diseases ruined the look of your lawn? Our Lawn top dressing services may be the solution.

What is lawn top dressing? Top dressing is a lawn maintenance practice that involves placing a thin layer of organic material on top of an established lawn. Doing this helps to improve the soil composition because the organic material works its way beneath the existing turf-grass and into the soil profile.

Repeated lawn top dressing combined with lawn aeration, dethatching, and over-seeding can help make your lawn beautiful again. Our friendly professionals look forward to helping you maintain and enjoy a beautiful lawn all year round.

Lawn Top Dressing Benefits:

  • Helps aerate compacted soils.
  • Helps release nutrients in compost slowly and over a long period, with minimal nutrient leaching.
  • Introduces compost microbes that digest thatch.
  • Provides much-needed organic nutrients to the lawn.
  • Improves drainage, which helps reduce the risk of fungus.
  • Helps create thicker, healthier strands of grass.
  • Improves drought tolerance of turf grass.
  • Can help reduce the quantity or need for chemicals and fertilizers to be applied on the lawn.

Organic Benefits:

Correcting the soil and incorporating an organic fertilizer program is often sufficient to maintain a healthy lawn. Topdressing helps to improve soil quality over time. As organic matter breaks down, it filters through the existing soil to improve the texture and the overall health of your lawn.

Best Time to Top Dress a Lawn

The ideal time for lawn top dressing is when your lawn is actively growing. Some lawns benefit from topdressing twice a year. We recommend doing it when heading into prime growing conditions. Our local landscape experts perform topdressing in spring and/or fall.
