Your lawn is the canvas upon which your home is drawn. It has great aesthetic value to your home, and a well-maintained lawn is even much more breathtaking. Therefore, you need to go all out when caring for your lawn and the best place to start is by leveling it. Have a look at the below reasons why you should level your lawn (if you haven’t already)
You Eliminate Safety Hazards
An uneven lawn presents a very real tripping hazard to you, your family, and your friends. Someone could easily twist an ankle after tripping on a bump or dip. This can be especially dangerous for the kids who love playing on the lawn. It is, therefore, a good idea to even your lawn.
It Improves Aesthetics
A leveled lawn will make your home look neat. After top-dressing your lawn, grass will sprout through it and flourish.
The result of this is very satisfying to the eye as it makes the whole area serene and ambient. With an awesome lawn, you can comfortably throw parties and invite friends over to show off.
It Improves soil composition
Topdressing is the addition of a thin top layer of soil on your lawn. This soil is usually rich in nutrients and it increases the overall fertility of your lawn. Fertile soils are important for the healthy growth of grass.
Enables Easier Mowing
Mowing an even lawn is like taking a walk in the park. Conversely, dips and bumps on the lawn can make mowing a nightmare. You have to take extra caution with the lawnmower to achieve an even cut grass surface. Even so, you might end up balding parts of the turf. By simply leveling your lawn, you can avoid all these challenges.
Increases Soil Aeration
Compact soil lacks spaces between soil molecules that are responsible for soil aeration. Such soil hinders the movement of nutrients within the soil to the grassroots.
Introducing a top dressing is a remedy for this problem. Earthworms and other animals in the top dressing create air passages as they move in the soil. In the long run, this results in aerated soil which is conducive for the growth of grass.
