Default Newbie question: how do I "top-dress" a lawn?

ok you want to add about 1/2 inch to an inch at most...THEN fertilize
well... the roots will come UP to the fertilizer

Any more than this and you run the risk of smothering the roots

You may want to throw down some leaf compost instead of soil, that you could
put down a little thicker..

I'd like to "top dress" my fescue - over the years I've lost top soil
and I'd like to attempt to "top dress" every year or so (depending on
what it takes to do it). I'm curious as to what's the best way to do
it and what approach gives the most bang for the buck. Any
suggestions, however simple, will be greatly appreciated by this

Thank you,
