Golf course managers have known for years the benefits of topdressing turf.  Adding a fine layer of composted soil over an existing lawn makes for a list of benefits.  This process is done by golf courses but was not possible or practical for the typical home- owner in the past.  That is until MulchWorx came along, with their cutting edge technical blower trucks with the capability of blowing composted soil over an existing lawn.  Topdressing adds organic soil amendments, which improve the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the soil.  This enhances turf quality and vigor, and improves its resistance to stress.  MulchWorx highly recommends core aeration before topdressing to further enhance the benefits of this soil amendment process.  The great thing about this process is that MulchWorx can add seed, fertilizer, and a natural polymer to make the most of this unique process.  You can drop seed on your lawn and even over seed with a slit seeder, but if you want great results you are far better off amending the soil with topdressing than messing with hard clay and hoping for the best.
