We use Organic Pelletized Compost
for our topdressing applications. This adds carbon to your soil and feed the microbes which in turn feed your lawn Here’s some more information and tips on topdressing:
Use good quality topdressing material if you plan to do it yourself.
Some products on the market have a high salt content and can cause more harm than good. Grass prefers a sandier loam soil with good drainage – soils with heavy peat content look good, but they are better suited for flower gardens and veggie gardens, not lawns.
Protects seeds during germination
Covering the grass seed with a layer of compost will protect it from birds and from drying out too quickly between watering.
Breaks down thatch
Organic varieties like ours contain soil microbes that feed on thatch and break it down to a healthy level. A little that is good - too much and you have a home for Chinch Bugs and Dollar Spot.
Feeds the soil – builds your lawn from the ground up
Our Organic Pelletized compost adds soil microbes to your existing soil improving its health and bringing new life to your lawn.
Topdressing a lawn at the same time as a liquid aeration and overseeding is ideal as the three of these work very well together to give you the best possible outcome on improving your lawn! Strong healthy roots and a thick healthy turf.
