Topdressing Backyard Lawn With Biosolids - March 2023
Having used biosolids to topdress the front parkway and a little bit of my lawn out front, I have now moved on to adding a bit of this organic material to our backyard. This comes after I used the Downers Grove municipal biosolids in vertical mulching and by adding a little bit to our compost bin.
I've gone back-and-forth on whether (or not) to order a 3 yard delivery of biosolids, but in the meantime I've been going over to the pick-up station and filling 12 gallons-or-so of the material to use a little bit at a time.
As for the backyard, here's a few photos showing how I started with 10 gallons of biosolids as a soil amendment. Below, you can see the 2 buckets and the trug - as well as the rake I use to spread it around. I take each bucket and walk around and sort-of 'drizzle' the biosolids out. You can see how that gets applied in the second photo below.
