Hello, there. I am reading a brochure about green scaping. I met this sentence.
"Top dress existing lawns with a quarter- to half-inch of compost every spring or fall."
Is "Top" a verb and "dress" a noun? Does dress existing lawns mean a dress that has lawns? Does "Top dress" means that cover top of soil with something?
"Topdress" is a transitive verb that means "to fertilize (land) on the surface."
