Topdressing is a layer of compost and organic matter spread over the top of your lawn. This service replaces the natural nutrient recycling that a manicured landscape is deprived of.
If you want to look out your window every morning and see rich, deep green grass, then topdressing is a must. Give the Arborlogical Inc. experts a call, and we’ll get started on creating your dream yard.
Benefits of topdressing your lawn
Improved Soil Condition
If your lawn doesn’t look up-to-par, you can bet that your soil isn’t performing at its best. In order to accomplish this, the soil must be rich in organic matter and porous enough to allow oxygen and water to penetrate the root zone. Topdressing periodically will transform your current soil conditions into a more suitable growing environment.
Increased Microbial Activity
Good soils contain microorganisms, which in turn create nutrients for the plant. These microorganisms also breakdown pathogenic organisms and thatch, the dead and living grass parts between the soil and grass blades, which benefit the look and health of your yard.
Improved Lawn Color
The organic mixture used to top dress decreases pH over time, allowing the lawn and trees increased access to Nitrogen in the soil. This is when the coveted deep green color you’ve been searching for begins to surface.
Enhanced Seed Germination
Overseeding your lawn is most effective when done in conjunction with aeration and topdressing. This allows for optimum soil contact and improved moisture retention.
When should topdressing be done?
There is not a wrong time to topdress your yard. We generally schedule in the spring and fall to coincide with aeration.
