Top Dressing

Dressing for the occasion: Top dressing your field

Top dressing is an important aspect of sports ground maintenance. Why? Well the even spread of turf sand or loam assists in the levelling of sports ground surfaces. Depending on the needs of the grounds, we can spread a sandy loam or turf sand as part of an annual commercial turf management program. Our team of qualified turf management experts will then smudge or broom the sand in. This levels out the surface and promotes plant growth.

We can also help you with the top dressing of your cricket wickets. We are specialists in cricket wicket reconstruction, and how to provide the perfect finish and bounce to the pitch.

We source only the highest-quality top dressing materials, including sand, compost, and specialised blends, to ensure optimal results for your field. With us, you can rest assured that your turf is getting the best treatment possible.

From initial consultation to post-application care, our team is here to support you every step of the way. We’ll work closely with you to develop a top dressing plan that meets your goals and exceeds your expectations.

The power of top dressing for your commercial sports field

Enhanced Surface Levelling

Uneven playing surfaces can wreak havoc on gameplay and increase the risk of injuries. Top dressing smooths out bumps and depressions, creating a uniform surface that promotes optimal performance and safety for athletes.

Improved Soil Aeration

Compact, hard-packed soil stifles root growth and inhibits water and nutrient absorption. Top dressing introduces a layer of nutrient-rich material, such as sand or organic compost, that aerates the soil, allowing roots to penetrate deeper and flourish.

Enhanced Drainage

Waterlogged fields are a recipe for disaster, leading to soggy conditions and game cancellations. Top dressing improves soil structure and promotes better drainage [link], ensuring that your field stays playable even after heavy rain.

Revitalised Turf Health

Over time, sports fields can become worn and depleted, with thinning grass and patchy areas. Top dressing rejuvenates tired turf, stimulating new growth and revitalising the overall health and appearance of your field.
