TOP DRESSING
____________________________________________________________

Apply directly to the soil in a 1/2" to 1" layer around the base of the trees and shrubs beyond the drip line.

Top Dressing your lawn involves creating a mixture of sand, loam, and vermicompost and then evenly distributing it over your lawn (no more than 1" of top dressing). Overly sandy soils get enriched with organic matter which improves water retention and nutrient content. Clay soil improves due to the humic acid and organic matter, which helps to break up and soften the soil and increase healthy root growth.

Best lawns receive top dressing annually, but even one application will make a huge difference.

FOR SANDY SOILS
  • 1 parts sharp sand
  • 3 part loam or top soil or old potting soil
  • 1 part vermicompost


  • FOR AVERAGE SANDY/LOAMY SOILS
  • 3 parts sharp sand
  • 3 parts loam top soil or old potting soil
  • 1 part vermicompost


  • FOR CLAY SOILS
  • 3 parts sharp sand
  • 1 part loam top soil or old potting soil
  • 1 part vermicompost


Sharp sand is angular sand that is often sold as builder's sand. It is not beach sand; beach sand has been smoothed by the tumbling in the ocean. Angular sand allows for better air capacity in the soil.
