Top Dressing & Overseeding

Lawn Repair & Renovation

Improving lawns involves correcting the source of problems, not just the symptoms.  Depending on the current condition of a lawn several elements can go into an effective lawn improvement project.

We must stress that mechanical treatments can be really important.  Treatments such as aeration and scarification, topdressing and overseeding are cost-effective ways to really give your lawn a boost without going to the expense and effort of returning or completely reseeding.  Lawns age and become thin over time.  Occasionally injecting new seed into the grass and organic material to improve the soil thickens up the lawn and rejuvenates it.  

Our free lawn health check is the best place to start.  Our analysis of your current soil and lawn will provide the answers on exactly what will be required to give you the healthy, beautiful and green lawn you want.

Spring and autumn are the best times to carry out this work and we will advise depending on your circumstances and preferred timings.

Overseeding involves mechanically spreading grass seed at a specified amount per square m depending on your lawn.  Topdressing usually follows and involves spreading a layer of carefully specified soil/sand/compost mixture over the entire lawns surface.
