Lawn Dressing

GardenPride provides your lawn with a Lawn Dressing specially formulated for the Gauteng soil and grass requirements.

GardenPride Lawn Dressing consists of GardenPride Topsoil and GardenPride organic medium Compost specially mixed to an ideal ratio and finely sifted. GardenPride Lawn Dressing is to be used on Kikuyu grass lawns. Other fine lawns must apply GardenPride organic medium Compost directly, or better still a mix of GardenPride organic medium Compost and GardenPride Kraal Manure.

GardenPride Lawn Dressing increases the microbes in the soil so that the lawns roots can take up the available organic nutrients in the soil. These microbes also help suppress diseases in the soil. By adding the organic content also helps the soil to retain water. Secondly lawn dressing levels out any uneven areas on your lawn.

How do I apply GardenPride Lawn Dressing to the lawn?

Lawn DressingThe key to applying the top dressing is to make sure that you get an even spread of the GardenPride Lawn Dressing over the area and to make sure that the GardenPride Lawn Dressing does not remain ‘on top’ of the grass. The GardenPride Lawn Dressing should penetrate down to soil level.  Before you begin you may find that on heavy or compacted soils aerating the lawn a few days before will help your GardenPride Lawn Dressing application.  When your lawn is ready, apply GardenPride Lawn Dressing to the lawn by using a spade to deposit the mixture onto the lawn surface.  You then spread the top dressing over the required area using a flat surface such as the back side of a rake. Make sure that the action leaves no bumps on the surface and fills all the hollows in.

Do not leave top dressing lying on the surface of the lawn. If there is excess top dressing left on the grass surface after spreading then remove it.

When should I apply GardenPride Lawn Dressing to the lawn?

You should apply GardenPride Lawn Dressing to the lawn in autumn. Lawns which are based on poor soil will benefit from top dressing the soil each year. Lawns based on good quality soil should not need top dressing every year although if you want a really top class lawn then you may wish to do so.
