    Hi everyone, New to the site as well as the landscaping business. When topdressing and overseeding in what sequence do you make the application? Overseed and then topdress or the opposite? I have heard both ways, but just wanted to see what the experts do. Thanks.

    Generally you will get better results by topdressing after overseeding due to increased soil to seed contact.
