Topdressing Existing Lawn
Topdressing is a proven practice often completed in conjunction with aeration and seeding in turf maintenance programs and renovation procedures. Topdressing adds organic soil amendments, which improves the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of soil. This enhances turf quality and vigor and improves its resistance to stress. A few days after mowing, spread StablePeat™ onto lawns ½” to ¾” depth by hand or with a broadcast spreader, and rake in gently. Avoid spreading on too thick as to smother existing grass. StablePeat™ increases the organic matter content in the soil, increases the water holding capacity of soil, reduces thatch, and can biologically control certain turf diseases.

New Lawn Installation
A 4 to 5 inch layer as well as any other amendments needed, should be thoroughly incorporated into the top 4 inches of existing soil using a roto-tiller or any other means preferred, smooth surface by raking, then seed.


Soil Amendment (Gardening, Vegetables, Flowers, Etc.)

StablePeat™ is safe to use on fruit, vegetable and flower gardens, because it is all- natural. Its near neutral pH value helps sweeten soil acidity, releasing nutrients to the roots of garden plants. It is free of chemical dyes, and waste wood products. A 4 to 5 inch layer will add in weed suppression, moisture retention and improves soil chemistry as well as tilth (texture). Till in the following year. For potting plants, use 50% StablePeat™, and 50% soil. This will increase soil aeration, and help to promote new root growth.

Soil Amendment (Shrubs, Trees and Plants)
StablePeat™ is recommended for use in planting trees, shrubs and plants. Prepare a hole twice the size of the root ball being planted. Prepare a mixture of 50% StablePeat™ and 50% soil from the dug hole place plant into hole and backfill with prepared mixture. Make sure to tamp in firmly to avoid air pockets, and water.
