Time to Top Dress lawns

Spring is here.

Now is the perfect time to start preparing your lawns for the Spring & Summer months ahead. Only top dress your lawns when the weather is warm enough for growth. Otherwise the lawn will die under the soil.

These days we top dress to correct poor nutrition, fill in low spots and correct uneven areas in the lawn and give your lawns that lush green look.

On new lawns, top dressing is generally not required, but can be done to fill in any gaps or holes. However, we recommend that you leave it for a few months, and most of those issues will take care of themselves. Occasionally, after a settling period, some areas of a new lawn may need a slight correction to desired levels. Fertilize a few weeks prior to top dressing to ensure maximum growth at the time. Using a top dressing soil mix.

For established lawns that need top dressing, prior to doing so, mow lawn low and try and to use a catcher. Spread the mix evenly over the desired area, then rake, level lawn or broom it into the lawn profile. Never top dress more than 1cm in a single application, making sure the grass tips are still exposed. And at all times keep the soil moist until there is no soil visible on top of the lawn.

Here at Langlands we provide two different types of top dressing.
