Topdressing: what is it?


Composting consists of spreading directly on your lawn a layer of 1/2 to 1 cm of potting soil in order to provide it with the additional organic matter necessary for its good development..

You can also use a compost whose fertilizing action will provide all the needs for your lawn for a year.

Composting, technique and principle

Composting allows good maintenance of plants and turf and also avoids the application of too frequent fertilizers.

  • This operation allows the soil to enrich itself organically.
  • It also helps aerate the earth, which tends to grow heavier over the years.
  • Composting improves the structure of the soil.
  • A better structured soil will promote water retention and fertilization.
  • The addition of potting soil or compost will allow the soil to be more porous and thus promote the gas exchange necessary for the proper development of the roots.
