Installation

SUITABLE FOR

-All lawn grasses including all named varieties of buffalo, traditional couch, Santa Ana couch, kikuyu, bent, fescues and carpet grass.
-All grass substitutes such as dichondra (also known as pennywort or kidney weed), lippia, zoysia.
-Topdressing existing lawns and mixing into existing soil when preparing areas for sowing lawn seed or laying instant turf.

HOW IT WORKS

Topdress Mix adds organic matter to impoverished soils to improve soil texture, moisture-holding and overall soil health
When applied as a topdressing, it can be used to remove hollows that may have developed
Provides a healthy soil environment for sowing lawn patching and repair products
Its nutrients are released at about the same rate that grass roots can take up the fertiliser so there is no wastage, run-off to waterways or damaging surge growth


HOW TO USE

Topdress Mix may be spread thinly over an existing lawn alone or in combination with over-seeding to boost lawn density
Spread evenly over the grass and rake to level the area. If over-seeding, use quality seed and follow package directions
For lawns that have a build-up of dead grass under the green top growth ("thatch"), raking with a steel tine garden rake followed by aeration with a sturdy fork is recommended before topdressing
To prepare an area for a new seeded or turfed lawn, spray the area with a non-selective herbicide such as Roundup according to label directions at least 10 days before planting, to eradicate all existing weeds and grasses
Dig out dead weeds and grass then loosen the soil. Spread a 2.5cm layer of Topdress Mix and mix into top 2.5cm of the existing soil
Spread seed or lay turf and water frequently. After 8-10 weeks, feed with Scotts Lawn Builder™ All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Food
For a complete guide on how to use Scotts Lawn Builder™ Topdress Mix, watch the video on this page and always check the packaging.

NOT SUITABLE FOR

Scotts Lawn Builder™ Topdress is not recommended for use on garden beds

Do not use as a topdress on lawns less than 8 weeks old - from germination of seed or installation of instant turf (safe as an underlay).

WHEN TO USE

Topdressing an existing lawn is best done in Autumn, after the heat of Summer has passed and before Winter rainfall
It can be done at other times of the year but avoid topdressing in mid Summer
Sowing new lawns and patching existing grass are best done in mid Spring, allowing time for the seeds to germinate and grass to establish before Summer
New turf is best laid in Spring or Autumn - avoid Summer's heat and Winter's cold
