Creating a beautifully green lawn this spring doesn't have to be difficult. When you begin with topdressing lawn care services, you make sure your lawn has a healthy foundation to grow on. When combined with other Nutri-Lawn Vancouver lawn maintenance services, topdressing can work wonders to ensure the strength and quality of your grass. If you want to get the lawn, without doing the work, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver can help. But first, find out why topdressing your lawn can benefit your soil and Vancouver lawn care.
What is topdressing?
Topdressing is the act of applying topsoil to a garden or to your grass, particularly if either has been freshly planted. It is a thin, even layer that is distributed over your lawn, on "top" of the soil – as the name would suggest. Topsoil often has nutrients mixed in to further enhance your Vancouver lawn care, and high quality topsoil has been sterilized from weeds. Topsoil is often loamy, or sandy loam.
On occasion, homeowners may even choose to use compost for their topsoil if it has been finely ground enough to create the same dark, neat appearance.
What lawn care services benefit from topdressing?
Many homeowners use topdressing as a way to even out their lawn. Bumpy lawns will gain a smoother surface with a proper application of topsoil. For this reason, topdressing is often used in lawn renovations by Nutri-Lawn Vancouver.
Overseeding and planting a garden are two other cultural practices that will need a layer of topsoil to help the plants survive. These will require fertilizer mixed into the soil, with a coat of topdressing to finish the job. This simply guarantees a healthy base on which the seed may germinate and thrive.
Finally, topdressing is a good Vancouver lawn care practice to simply renew tired, compacted soil. It adds a fresh layer to worn out soil to help your grass get all the minerals it needs.
How does Vancouver lawn care benefit from topdressing?
Despite the fact that topdressing is one of the extraordinarily arduous common lawn care services, it has numerous benefits that make it a handy practice to keep. If you want to gain these benefits, without gaining the hassle, talk to your Nutri-Lawn Vancouver specialist to see how you can work topdressing into your lawn care services.
Topdressing will help to improve the quality of your soil, but also increase your soil's drainage ability. It is for these two reasons that topdressing is so often used with overseeding and other lawn renovations.
Topdressing also provides a protective layer to prevent damage in harsh winter months. This can save you from adding to your Nutri-Lawn Vancouver lawn maintenance services in the following spring.
Finally, topdressing hinders the growth of thatch. Thatch occurs when organic material has struggled to decompose at the same rate at which it is added to the surface of your lawn. Thatch suffocates your lawn by preventing oxygen, nutrients, and water from reaching your grass roots.
