There is no "best topdressing material" for your lawn. Some people use mushroom compost, some people use peat moss, some use composted cow manure, some use their own compost. Depending on what kind of soil you already have, you may want to mix it with bagged topsoil or sand. For example, if you have a very light, sandy soil you may want to mix the organic matter with topsoil. If you have a very clay soil, you may want to mix in a small amount of sand and gypsum to help break up the clay.
