Sometimes, lawns do not have soil that is rich in nutrients, meaning the grass growing there is weaker than it should be. When this happens, it can be rectified through a method known as top dressing.

At Gatsby Grounds Company, we can provide top dressing services to residential and commercial properties located in and around Lunenburg, Leominster, Concord, and nearby Massachusetts areas such as Westford, Lincoln, and Framingham.

What Is Top Dressing & How It Is Beneficial for Lawns

Topdressing is a prepared mix of organic matter that is laid out over the surface of your lawn. The mix we use at Gatsby Grounds Company is a compost product of biosolids that comes out of the wastewater stream. It goes through testing to ensure it’s safe to handle, and then we bring it out to your property in dump trucks. It is spread out with a wheelbarrow-like tool until about a quarter-inch of it covers your lawn.

Top dressing helps to increase the amount of organic matter in your soil. Typically, soil contains about 4-6% organic matter. The top dressing we apply to your lawn contains 70% organic matter. Applying this top dressing helps to deliver nutrients to your soil, as it has a good amount of nitrogen as well as some phosphorus. This gives your lawn an extended feeding and also helps to neutralize your soil.

Other pros of applying top dressing include:

  • Retention of moisture: Topdressing helps to increase the soil’s retention of moisture, meaning less water evaporates.
  • Healthier grass growth: Your grass will become stronger from the increased nutrients in the soil as it feeds on the organic matter.
  • Weed blocker: Top dressing can act as a weed growth inhibitor, blocking sun and water from reaching the weeds.
  • Fill out bumps: This process can also help to smooth out any bumps in your lawn that may have occurred.

What Types of Properties Need Top Dressing

Newly constructed homes in Concord, MA, and the surrounding areas, are perfect for our top dressing services.

Any property that tests low for nutrients in the soil or a soil with high pH can benefit from top dressing. Typically, we get many requests from newly constructed homes as the building process can strip nutrients and topsoil from the lawns. Homeowners begin to realize their lawns aren’t growing very well and need an extra boost. This service is best performed during certain times of the year and also needs a trained crew to perform it in order for your lawn to reap the maximum benefits.
