Aim:

To work top dressing into a sport surface and remove dew off the grass plant.

Method:

A hand operated drag mat made of steel squares with a draw rope.

Timing:

  • Any time of the year.
  • The working in of top dress is best done in dry conditions. 

Effects of Incorrect Procedure:

Although the drag mat does work for top dressing, it does not level a surface, a straight edge should be used when dressing a winter games pitch. 

Equipment Selection:

Hand operated steel mat with draw ropes.

Practical Tips:

A drag mat will follow existing contours on a surface so will not level top dressing a straight edge is needed for levelling.
