Lawn and Sports Turf Top Dressing (TD5)

High quality premixed sand and soil Top Dressing (70/30), blended using heat treated 3mm screened sports sand.

Available in:

  • Pallets of 25kg Bags, from 10 bags to a full pallet of 40 x 25kg bags (1000kg).

Suitable for lawn and sports surfaces, top dressing helps break down the thatch layer in your turf, improves overall soil quality and stimulates grass to produce new shoots for a denser grass cover as well as improving drainage.

Top dressing also helps level out hollows and bumps to create a smooth, regular and true lawn surface for that pristine appearance and a totally even, shade-free space.

Perfect either for promoting thick, healthy lawn growth in late spring or for establishing a fertile base for your lawn in late autumn, top dressing is ideal for helping lawn development, including when over seeding to fill in and thin patches.

Ideal for sports surfaces, large turfed spaces or just to bring some professional-league punch to your garden lawn this year!

  • Stimulates grass growth
  • Thickens lawns
  • Breaks down thatch
  • Improves drainage
  • Levels lawns

Top Dressing a Lawn - Application Rate

Top dressing a lawn is simply a case of raking in a fine layer of topdressing, the depth of application very much depends on the situation but somewhere between 0.5cm and 1.5cm depth is recommended.

Depending on the preferred application depth you will require:

  • 0.5cm application: a rate of approximately 4kg to 6kg per square meter
  • 1cm application: depth 8-12kg per square meter

The general rule is 75% of the grass leaf must be exposed. At this rate you may be able to top dress twice in spring and once in autumn if need be.
