What does top dressing a lawn do?

Top dressing a lawn is an effective way to keep it healthy and vibrant. It involves applying a thin layer of organic matter such as compost, sand, etc. to the surface of your lawn. This helps add essential nutrients to the soil and improve its structure, which in turn encourages a healthy root system. Top dressing also helps to promote turf density, retain moisture, and improve drainage. It can be done as part of regular lawn care or as a one-time solution to improve the health of an unhealthy lawn. Regular top dressing helps keep your lawn looking green and lush for years to come.

How long does it take for lawn care to work?

What does grass need to grow?

Grass needs several necessary elements to grow. It requires healthy, nutrient-rich soil with adequate water and sunlight. Grass also needs macro nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as micro nutrients available to thrive. Proper mowing techniques and other cultural practices can also ensure a healthy, lush lawn. Mowing grass on a regular basis helps it to remain healthy and thick. It also encourages the growth of deeper roots, which can help the grass survive during periods of drought. Finally, a consistent fertilization schedule is important for maintaining a healthy lawn. Fertilizer can provide the grass with extra nutrients that may not be available in the soil. With these elements, grass will be able to grow and flourish.

your topsoil is critical to the health of your lawn.

This is the most important layer for your lawn. When homes are built the land is graded, which results in the loss of the topsoil layer. Then the property is either seeded or sodded, which means the grass doesn’t have much to work with. Other lawn care companies solve for this by applying a ton of fertilizer and herbicides, at Canopy we focus on restoring your soil so your lawn can be sustainable for years to come.
