There are many benefits of top-dressing your lawn. Is your lawn looking a little lackluster, are there low spots of ruts? help to reduce the accumulation of dead grass clippings and stems, known as ‘thatch’. Increase nutrient retention, improve drainage and increase disease and pest resistance.
Topdressing should only be done during the growing season (this is when you need to mow your lawn weekly) and the earlier in the season the better. Generally, late spring to early summer is best. Coupled up with some fertilization, this may be the perfect way to renew your lawn and bring it back to life.
