What is Compost Top-Dressing?

Adding compost soil to your turf is like giving your lawn a shot of important vitamins and bio nutrients.  The organic matter that’s added to your lawn provides much needed nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, and micro-organisms.  All of this promotes a healthy soil, and that’s the key to a beautiful turf space.

Can I signup for Compost Top-Dressing as a stand alone service?

We generally only offer this service as an add-on to our Lawn Fertilizer Program. This is because we beautify properties over the long term via our maintenance programs and one time applications won’t result in a lush lawn. Compost is a great addition to an existing turf program.

How much is applied to the lawn?

During the fall, our teams apply a depth of .25″ – .5″, depending on the soil conditions. Here are a couple examples: Example1  Example2

Do you apply seed with the compost?

Yes, compost is an add-on to App#5 of our Lawn Fertilizer Program, which includes Aeration/Seeding/Fertilizer/Soil Amendment/Lime. We use a high quality tall fescue blend.

How much does it cost?

We charge $145 per hour for a 3 person team + $60 per cubic yard of compost installed (around 1 cubic yard of compost is used for every 1k sqft of turf). We take a cc on file in our secure portal and bill upon completion of the service.

How does billing work?
