Top Dressing Your Lawn

Top dressing is the process of applying compost, top dressing soil, garden soil, topsoil or composted top dressing pellets over the surface of your lawn. Top dressing restores balance to your lawn, builds good soil and increases your soil flora.

Contact Harmony Gardens Landscaping to discuss implementation of this top dressing into your lawn care program.

Screened Composted Top Dressing Pellets
The composted pellets are screened and composted and thus are weed-free. The pellets are applied via a fertilizer spreader for even distribution and no mess. The pellets are odourless and are made from screened, composted leaf yard wastes with absolutely no animal by products or human waste. The pellets drop down close to the soil and basically out of sight. The lawn looks good after application yet the top dressing pellets go to work right away. The lawn can be used immediately after pelletized top dressing unlike traditional top dressing with soils. The screened composted top dressing pellets are safe around children and pets. Top dressing pellets have been scientifically proven to improve soil tilth and increase soil’s moisture retention.
