Topdressing for Lawns
Topdress lawns with a thin layer
of Soil3 organic humus compost
to renovate and improve an existing residential or commercial lawn or sports field turfgrass. With this layer of Soil3
compost we are addressing the problems of thinning or unhealthy sod and/or providing the first application of fertilizer for the year.
Grass Top Dressing
Use compost topdressing to improve lawns and as a fertilizer application:
1 cubic yard of Soil3 will cover 2,000 sq. ft.
2 cubic yards will cover 4,000 sq. ft.
Soil3 is OMRI Listed organic compost for certified organic gardening and is safe for your family, pets, and the environment.
The picture below speaks a thousand words. Only two weeks ago this homeowner topdressed with Soil3 organic compost for his first fertilizer application - the topdressed area is already dark green thanks to Nature's Nutrients inherent in Soil3.
A border around the lawn was kept untreated because that grass will be removed and a fence installed along the front and driveway with a flower border in the back; the untreated area is light green because it didn't receive any Soil3
(so no nutrients). This is just one example of why we strongly believe Soil3
is the best top dressing for lawns. The difference is night and day!
Soil3 as a grass topdressing provides these benefits:
Slow release of natural nutrients
Improved moisture retention
Improved soil structure
Beneficial soil microbes that reduce lawn diseases
Increased organic matter content
It's an OMRI Listed product labeld for use for certified organic gardening
The care of all home lawns
Maintenance of lawngrass around business; from small sodded areas to large turf areas in strip malls, business parks, or industrial parks
Organic care of grassy city parks where people play and relax - peace of mind that comes from knowing organic lawncare is practiced!
All sportsfields and high traffic turf
Topdressing and aerating go hand-in-hand. And it's easy! We have a how-to video and written instructions on our How-to Topdress Lawns with Soil3 Organic Compost
[Topdressing of turf also refers to a thick layer (no more than 1/2 of the blade height) of sand intended to improve the surface texture of the land under the turf, i.e., to even out bumps and depressions. The goal of topdressing like that is to create a smooth playing surface for sports fields and golf courses and is often necessary to smooth newly established home and commercial lawns. Please note this is not the type of topdressing we are referring to in this article, but we have a product called Level Mix, that was formulated for this purpose.]
