My standard fall over seeding process for the past few years has included a soil test, aerating, lime (heavy clay always seems to need it) and a slit seeder. I decided this year to replace the slit seeder and go back to a spreader for seeding and then top dressing. It's what we used to do but applying topdressing is a PITA process. And truthfully the results with top dressing far exceed the results of the slit seeder. I have considered buying the topdressing equipment but have a hard time rationalizing the expense for once a year. I did see that there are several spreaders advertised (Earthway and Stryker) that claim to work for top dressing. But I decided why not just hire a lawn care company that does top dressing and let them do the entire job. Well good luck with that thought. I have called no less than 15 of the larger companies and none of them do topdressing. I did have 2 come by but they only want to redo my pool deck, build a brick fire pit or install new fencing. What happened to companies that specialize in lawn care and provide FULL service? Am I looking in the wrong places? It is hard to believe that a city loaded with lawn care companies and obsessed with their lawns that no one does top dressing. Anyone know of someone in Charlotte?
