I decided to try out top dressing with one of my existing customers, I've had him for years as a year round customer and don't want to screw it up so I could use some advice. Somebody told him he needs 7 yards of soil to cover his lawn half an inch. I estimate he has about 7,000 sq ft of turf.. does that sound right? Anyway, my plan is to cut and bag very short, aerate, spread the soil, spread the seeds then rake it in. I'm a little leery as he had a bad top dressing done a few years back, so I'd like to get the figures straight. How many yards per 1,000 sq ft for half an inch. And how many lbs of seeds for that area as well.. my brother told me I'd probably need a hundred bucks in just seeds about two big bags, sounds like a lot but... Any advice would be great thanks! Btw, this lawn is in Manitoba.
