Applying a top dressing is an integral part of any sports turf or lawn renovation. The purpose of top dressing is to create a level surface, improve drainage, improve drought resistance, encourage the breakdown of thatch and encourage a healthy dense sward.

For further information regarding the various types of top dressings and soils, drag mats, grass seeds and fertilisers we offer, call our technical sales team on 01902 440250.

Top Dressing

Whether top dressing lawns or quality sports surfaces the following principles apply: topdressing should be applied when grass is actively growing.

Generally top dressing is applied in the spring and autumn when there is sufficient moisture to allow the dressing to be washed in, though the dressing is usually ‘dragged’ in with a drag mat or drag brush.

The topsoil calculator can help you determine what quantity of material you will need.

As any turf specialist will tell you, obtaining the correct top dressing is important, this is where our technical experts are on hand to guide you through the choices available, whether you require a sports renovation mix, an 80/20, 70/30 or 60/40 top dressing, an organic mixture or simply a premium lawn dressing.

Top dressing forms part of the typical turf renovation which commonly comes in the form of treating moss either with Jewel, a moss killer for turf, or an iron then scarifying the moss out. Deep scarification can be undertaken to remove thatch and other aeration work such as verti-draining, solid tining or hollow coring to remove rubbish from the surface and allow the top dressing to key in.
