Excellent Organic Lawn Fertilizer
Using Soil3 Organic Compost to topdress your lawn adds beneficial organic microorganisms and much needed nutrients to your turf's soil. Aerating before top dressing helps these organic fertilizers reach your grass roots zone and strengthen the root system.Here's how:
The 4 step process is simple!
- Use a core aerator to aerate your lawn. We have complete written intructions on our Super-Sod website, check out: How to Aerate Your Lawn.
- Spread Soil3 using a shovel or compost spreader to 1/4 to 1/2" thick.
- Rake it into the root zone (so that the compost doesn't remain on top of the grass).
- Turn on the sprinkler to water it in. Watering will move any remaining Soil3 into the root zone.

- Aerate with a core aerator & topdress with Soil3 yearly
- Warm-season grasses (Zoysia, Bermuda, Centipede, St. Augustine) should be done in the spring, just before, after, or during greenup
- Fescue (a cool-season grass) should be done in the autumn
- Aerate only established lawns; never aerate freshly-laid sod because the aerator will tear it up!
