Top dressing is one of Action Property Services Inc. specialty services. Topdressing is a process of adding a 1 inch layer of 50:50 loam compost mix over the existing lawn to add much needed minerals and nutrients to the existing soil.. Topdressing can improve soil biology by adding beneficial organic matter and microorganisms. It also reduces lawn stress, helps keep thatch under control, and acts as a long term natural fertilizer.

Lawn over seeding is essential for maintaining your lawn’s long term health. Action Property Services Inc. uses high quality grass seed on all our projects. There are many types of grass species. Choosing the species that is right for a particular area can mean the difference of having a healthy green lawn or having a lawn that is problematic. The landscaper’s method of application is also an important factor. We want our clients to have a lawn that they can be proud of.
Power raking and dethatching can be done throughout the growing season, but is recommended in the spring. Power raking removes the layer of matted dead thatch. If thatch isn’t removed it can prevent water, fertilizer, light and disease control treatments from getting to the roots of the grass. Landscaper knows dethatching is an important factor in maintaining a healthy green lawn.
Lawn aerating involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate compacted soil and stimulate the grass roots. This treatments helps the roots grow deeply, and produce a stronger more vigorous lawn. Aerating can be done throughout the growing season.
