With a mushy lawn that is very wet right now, our landscaper is advising spreading vast quantities of sand in some areas. I have read quite a few online articles regarding not doing this, but rather spreading a compost top dressing to improve the soil [not all of it is low-lying, but some is]. This is on Vancouver Island. I am not convinced of this remedy and since his background is in golf course care I wanted some other opinions. A previous landscaper, upon being consulted, said no, suggested using the compost spread as a top dressing [when the ground dries]. Opinions?
