Top Dressing Sand
Lawn lovers everywhere admire the look of a clean, manicured golf course. It can be challenging to replicate that pristine look at home, with issues such as thatching and irregularities in the lawn surface preventing proper maintenance.
Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping can provide the same lawn care service that most golf clubs utilize to develop and maintain that pristine look to your lawn. In fact, our team has provided services to both home and business owners for over a decade.
Top Dressing and Lawn Leveling Sand
Golf courses maintain that flat leveled look to their greens and fairways by top dressing the grass. This involves applying a thin layer of sand over maintained grassy areas. One of the primary purposes of this practice is to prevent a buildup of thatch.
This issue occurs when certain types of grass trap their own leaves and stems, resulting in a buildup of dead material. A key identifier of this is a spongy feeling beneath the foot when walking upon your lawn. Thatch can be a silent killer to any lawn, as the decomposing matter prevents nutrients, light and air from reaching new grass growth.
In residential areas, thatch can develop due to the uneven ground making mowing difficult. Top dressing fills in these divots and drops to create a smooth and maintainable surface. If addressing a potholed or pitted landscape, top dressing can be applied directly to lawn grasses like Zoysia or Bermuda grass.
Sod Dressing Sand Professionally Delivered and Installed
Applying top dressing to your lawn is not something that should be undertaken without professional assistance. As sand cannot retain any nutrients, excessive and unrestrained top dressing can damage the fertility of your lawn. Plain sand can also mix badly with clay-like soil, reducing drainage. We understand that Georgia residents care about their lawn’s appearance, not only now but also for years to come.
We utilize a mixture of sand and compost to allow your lawn to flourish. Our commitment to professionalism will mean that your lawn is sanded accurately and effectively. The results will speak for themselves – repeated use of our products and techniques could alleviate any issues with acidic or compact clay soils.
