Top Dressing

Top dressing can take your lawn from uneven and full of puddles during wet times and turn it back into a level, top-quality lawn that is lush and green. The quality of the top dressing you use can make all the difference in your summer lawn.

Typically, top dressing is either sand or compost. At GLM Landscape Supply, we have a 50/50 sand/compost blend that can give your lawn exactly what it needs to fill in the low areas and create a gorgeous, green lawn.

A thin layer of compost top dressing is a good choice when your grass needs fertilizing. The compost provides rich nutrients for the lawn, but it is a bit light to be the best for leveling. As a result, compost will settle rather than contribute to a sturdy foundation, and the lawn will become unlevel.

On the other hand, straight sand will help level your lawn and fill in the dips much more securely than compost alone. Sand, however, doesn’t add any nutrition to the soil.

At GLM Landscape Supply, we find that a mix of compost and sand is often the best solution for top dressing. As a result, your lawn will get leveled out and gain needed nutrients simultaneously.
