Why top dress?
Top dress is necessary for some because of the environmental damage, such as heat and drought, which was caused during the season. The best time to top dress your lawn is actually now! Autumn is a good time to top dress your lawn because you want the top dress to be thoroughly set in with your native soil and you also want to be able to mow the lawn a couple of times before winter comes. Top dressing can be hard labor, but the results will be very rewarding.
