Close your eyes and picture the most beautiful, dark, thick grass you’ve ever seen. I bet many of you thought of a spectacular golf course, baseball field, or football field. There are people dedicated to the constant beauty of those sports turf locations. They employ numerous people and tasks to keep those lawn areas looking spectacular. They meticulously treat with lawn care programs and their materials, mow them with care, core aerate them, and do whatever it takes to repair them when they get usage.

Those athletic fields and golf courses aren’t created to just look at, they get used and abused. Golf carts, mowers, and stampedes of athletes deteriorate those surfaces on a regular basis, yet they seem to stay beautiful. One of the reasons they stay beautiful is from an activity called “topdressing”, and now it is a service we offer for most residential and commercial lawns as well.

Topdressing is the application of a soil and compost mixture to the surface of a lawn to improve soil conditions and lawn health. A lawn is only as good as the soil it’s growing in. A lawn that is rich in organic matter and has good soil composition will grow a nice lawn. Beautiful lawns will have at least 7″-12″ of topsoil. This ideal condition allows grass plants to grow roots very deep into the soil which is critical to help them be able to withstand drought stress. Likewise, because this soil is well-drained, the roots will not decompose in water-logged situations, but continue to develop. Hands down, topdressing a lawn that has horrible soil will improve your soil and grow a better lawn. If you lawn is even marginal, it is just one thing you can do to make it look extraordinary.

For decades, we have helped dozens of school districts here in Lancaster, PA and the surrounding Central PA area to keep their sports turf looking great with topdressing services as well as other regular lawn maintenance operations. We are thrilled to now have the capability to be able to provide these topdressing services for most residential and commercial properties now, thanks to the purchase of a smaller topdresser. If you are interested in improving your lawn consider topdressing it once or twice a year. The cost is very affordable and will make a huge impact on your lawn’s health and appearance.
