How does topdressing help the turf?
Topdressing is then applied at a rate of approximately 1/8" to 1/4" layer over the surface of the turf. Topdressing helps eliminate thatch. Thatch is the accumulation of dead grass clippings and the dead stem of the plant. Topdressing retains moisture, heat and microbes to assist in the decomposition of the thatch layer. Topdressing also helps fill in depressions and low areas of the turf. This allows for a smoother cutting of the leaf.
