Gainesville Topdressing Increases Lawn Health Dramatically in 6 Weeks

In Northern Florida, most of our soil isn't exactly the most welcoming environment for growing healthy and lush turf grass.

Our soil can be sandy or contain a large amount of clay, both of which are low on nutrients and need to be supplemented with nutritional amendments. New construction also uses a lot of Builders' sand - which is void of nutrients as well.

This is a large hurdle for many homeowners that love the idea of a lush lawn. The extra irrigation needed in sandy soils and the relience on constant fertilization to feed nutrients can cause people to just give up.

Sometimes combined with aeration, our granulated compost improves the soil quality by feeding and growing the microbe population counts contained in the soil, without introducing weeds! Microbes are the backbone of healthy soil allowing nutrients to be efficiently utilized by the plants roots. By maximizing the effect of those nutrients, the result is healthier plants, denser roots systems and greener, thicker lawns.

Equally important, these specific nutrients aid in water efficiency and drought tolerance of turfgrass plants.

What are the immediate benefits of topdressing?

  •  Long-term Nutrients in the soil to feed the lawn
  •  Moisture retention (less drought stress, less irrigation)
  •  Quick response of growth to fill in bare areas

Lifesoils' Comand product used as a topdressing adds natural nutrients, improves water retention, and helps overcome the challenges of unhealthy soils. (Golf courses in our area topdress several times per year!)

Top-dressing turf with a quality compost improves soil quality, nutrient and water-holding capacity, and plant health. Good soil quality allows more robust plant root structure, higher organic matter helps the soil hold onto water and nutrients better, and soil active microbes from the addition of compost may improve the quality and appearance of the grass. A recent field study conducted by UF-IFAS in a neighborhood had homeowners reporting a reduced need for irrigation and fertilizer, and an improved appearance of their lawn.

Aerating and topdressing are two processes that can significantly improve the health and life of your North Florida lawn. Watch this video to see the process in action!

The Master's has been improving the appearance and the value of our property since the spring of 2018. The Master's guys get the job done from design to long-term care and irrigation. We wouldn't trust anyone else!

I have already had neighbors stop and admire the excellent work you guys do! You certainly have your business named appropriately. This seems to be more than a job to your men - It's their passion!

I have used this company for the last two years and I cannot recommend them enough. Herbert and his team are professional and their work is top quality. I have a massive irrigation project that I am planning and I can't think of a better company to handle it than The Master's.

Frustrated by my own ill-informed efforts, I connected with The Master's and the team has transformed the property. Judy and I couldn't be more pleased. Moreover, they are always responsive to questions, and the result is a sense of trust that frees me up!
