Have you ever admired and coveted the perfect grass on a golf course? Is it even possible to get that same green, even and manicured turf appearance in your own yard? Don’t assume that your backyard can’t have “golf-course-worthy” grass. In fact, it may come down to one simple addition – top dressing!
Almost every golf course fairway and green that you drool over is backed by the secret of top dressing. In most cases, this involves a layer of sand over the top surface of the lawn to unleash a number of desirable benefits for your lawn appearance and its health.
The Benefits of Top Dressing
There are many benefits to top dressing your lawn with sand, including the following:
- Improves overall quality of soil over time
- Promotes new growth for a denser lawn
- Fosters better moisture retention
- Increased root development and drainage (clay soils)
- Levels out bumpy areas
- Deters weeds and moss (due to increased density)
- Prevents thatch buildup
