How to Apply Lawn Dressing

Stunning Lawns Made Easy

The main purpose of Lawn Dressing is to incorporate organics back into the soil.

Applying Lawn Dressing rejuvenates, initiates and invigorates new lawn growth, resulting in an immediate and visible improvement of your lawn. More importantly, however, Lawn Dressing improves the soil structure and provides a basis for future microbial activity in the soil, ensuring it will perform better for the entire season.

How To Apply Lawn Dressing:

Prepare your lawn by mowing it short and scarify if possible. This allows the dry dead grass to be removed so the lawn dressing can penetrate the soil more easily.

Always apply fertilizer to the dry lawn before applying lawn dressing. The thickness of the layer may vary, but the tips of the lawn should be visible. A 30dm3 bag covers ±3m2 depending on the type of lawn and the length of the grass.

Water thoroughly to dissolve the fertilizer and initiate lawn growth. Continue watering regularly until the lawn is established.


If there are lots of existing weeds do not cut the lawn. Apply a suitable selective broadleaf herbicide allowing at least a week before mowing for the herbicide to act on the plant tissue.

When To Apply Lawn Dressing:

Lawn Dressing is recommended during early Spring (August and September) on existing lawns. It can however be applied at any time of the year and will enhance and improve the overall lawn growth in your garden.

It is recommended that a Lawn Dressing application be re-applied in March or April. This reduces weed growth and ensures your lawn stays in a healthy vigorous condition, promoting it’s endurance over winter.
