hi when is the best time to spike my lawn, and top dress in cambridgeshire,kind regards



September/October at the latest. After you've done the aerating, mix together 3 parts sandy loam, 6 parts sharp sand and 1 part compost, and spead/brush into the holes that you have made. You should notice a difference in the spring. Alteratively you can but ready made top dress from the garden centre.

Now is a good time, if you have poor drainage use an aerator with hollow tines, and then spread sharp sand over the lawn and brush it into the holes, you can also buy lawn topdressing for use in autumn from a garden centre. Derek.
