Despite the persistent cold weather, it’s almost time to start thinking about ways to improve your lawn and landscape this year. Is your Towson lawn in need of some screened topsoil? Luckily, it is one of the soil products you can have delivered to you by the cheerful experts at Lehnhoff’s Landscaping. Let’s take a better look at the ways you can improve the spread of screened topsoil on your lawn.
Top-Dressing Screened Topsoil
The first way to spread your new screened topsoil is via a method known as top-dressing. If there any places in your lawn that feel lower than others, then this topsoil can help resolve that issue. That said, it might take a few months for the problem to go away. By adding some dirt, you can pump your lawn without having to resort to something drastic, such as excavating your lawn and starting over. With a shovel, create holes in your existing topsoil. Then start spreading your screened topsoil. Just be careful not to cover your grass too much, or else your grass will be starved for sunlight. You could try one layer now and then around the end of April add a second one to see how your Towson lawn will handle it.
Adding It to Your Garden
You can also use your next batch of screened topsoil in your Towson home’s garden. If your current soil doesn’t provide the optimal conditions you are looking for, then you can experiment with screened topsoil and see if it makes a difference. Make your layer of topsoil between 6 to 8 inches. Then spread that layer out into smaller layers about one or two inches thick.
Smoothing Out Your Landscape
It’s possible that your Towson landscape could be uneven due to changing weather patterns or natural deformations in your property. By adding screened topsoil, you can smooth out your landscape and make it look fantastic. Leveling is the technique by which you can achieve a flat and aesthetically-pleasing look. Part of doing this includes adding some sod and watering the sod so that it will take to the screened topsoil.
