Soil quality is exceptionally important and can transform your garden into a verdant space filled with beautiful plants, flowers and vegetables.
The most important part of this is your topsoil, which is the topmost layer of soil and where the vast majority of nutrients are in the ground compared to the more densely packed subsoil.
Which topsoil is best for you depends on a range of factors, but a premium grade, organic topsoil will provide the perfect surface for flower beds and pristine lawns to grow.
Many gardens have poor soil content, particularly in new build homes. The construction process by design leads to a lot of damage to the natural topsoil and make the soil as it exists of relatively low quality for growing anything.
If you have recently removed a patio or courtyard, you will need to use topsoil to provide a base to use that ground again for growing grass or flowers.
What Type Do You Need?
Typically the better the topsoil, the better outcome you are likely to expect. Make sure that you check the topsoil before buying and ask for any soil analysis that has been undertaken on it.
What you are looking for is topsoil that meets the requirements and specifications to be used for gardening projects. This includes a soil pH grade of between 5.5 and 7.8, so close to neutral. There should provide the most suitable environment for a wide range of plants.
