Top Dressing Sports Turf

Applying a top dressing is an integral part of any sports turf or lawn renovation. The purpose of top dressing is to create a level surface, improve drainage, improve drought resistance, encourage the breakdown of thatch and encourage a healthy dense sward. Generally top dressing is applied in the spring and autumn when there is sufficient moisture to allow the dressing to be washed in, though the dressing is usually ‘dragged’ in with a drag mat or drag brush.
