SPORTSFIELD TOP DRESSING

Top dressing is an integral part of turf management. The main purpose of top dressing with a sand/soil mix is to level the ground to provide an even playing surface. When used in conjunction with aeration practices it can ease compaction, and in the longer term provide increase rooting depths.

 

Organic topdressing blends can be incorporated into a field top dressing program. Using organics in topdressing has the added advantage of improving soil health, providing organic nutrients and increasing water and nutrient holding capacity.
