Newly Seeded Lawns

When to Apply: EKO Lawn Top Dressing may be applied both before and/or after planting grass seed. When planting grass seed or when sodding, it is important that the area be prepared before planting. Preparing the soil before planting will result in:

  • Decreased germination time
  • Improved root growth of the turf
  • Decreased watering requirements of your turf grass
  • Decreased weed development
  • Decreased disease problems

All of the aforementioned is based upon using a high quality amendment that is incorporated into the top 6″ of your soil.

Established Lawns

When to Apply?: Apply EKO Lawn Top Dressing ideally after lawn aeration, but may be performed any time that the turf is free from snow and other debris. Applying EKO Lawn Top Dressing annually will provide your lawn with new vigor resulting in a thicker, greener, healthier lawn. You will notice a thicker lawn from improved root growth, as your soil becomes “renewed” with each application of EKO Lawn Top Dressing.
