Here at LawnSavers, our lawn care experts use granular compost that is a high-tech, yet low-mess and affordable alternative way to add the value of traditional “soil” topdressing to your lawn. We use pelletized leaf litter compost blended with Kelp, Humic acid and other nutrients normally found in only the finest finished composts. These nutrients are not present in most native soils or traditional fertilizer programs.
Traditional lawn top dressing involving bags or loads of soil delivered to your property has many downsides.
1. It’s expensive
2. It often introduces all sorts of weed seeds and grassy-weed seeds to your lawn,
3. It’s back-breaking work, and doesn’t do much to help your existing soil!
Our granular compost will help by adding organic matter to improve your soil resulting in thicker, healthier lawns.
Combined with Liquid or Core Aeration and the appropriate seeding method, it will help to fill-in and repair small bare spots on your lawn caused by stress, insect or animal damage as well as help to thicken up those areas that are thin and not looking there best. Compost provides fuel for the important microbes in your soil that digest the vital nutrients we apply and make them ‘available’ to your lawns root system for easier and more efficient uptake in the plant.
Our granulated compost improves the soil quality by feeding and growing the microbe population counts contained in the soil, without introducing weeds! Microbes are the backbone of healthy soil allowing nutrients to be efficiently utilized by the plants roots. By maximizing the effect of those nutrients, the result is healthier plants, denser roots systems and greener, thicker lawns.
Equally important, these specific nutrients aid in water efficiency and drought tolerance of turfgrass plants.
The following are instructions on how to go about performing top dressing on your own. Over-Seeding & Top-Dressing your lawn is really easy. All you have to do is go to your local garden store and purchase some high quality certified grass seed with endophyte and some good ‘finished compost’ or a sand/finished compost mix.
BEFORE STARTING: Don’t use soil that you dont know the origin of!
HINT: If you are unsure of the quality of your soil- test it first! water a small tray of soil and leave it in the heat and sun to see what grows!
