    Top dress?

    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?
