What exactly is Topsoil?

Topsoil is the top layer of soil. It sits above the subsoil and differs from it due to its higher concentration of organic matter, nutrient content, and the presence of less salt. Good topsoil is rich in minerals and nutrients and will aid the growth of plants in your garden. It can improve drainage and promote growth. Topsoil often is darker than subsoil, which is because of its different composition, and its better ability to retain moisture.

How Much Top Soil Will I Need?

You should aim to have at least 6 inches of quality topsoil if you want to improve hard or poor subsoils. This is especially important if you plan to grass the area.

How Do I Add The Topsoil?

Simply spread topsoil over the surface of the garden, removing any rocks or of debris as you go along. Add another 2 to 3 inches of rotted manure or compost to the soil if you want to further improve its texture and drainage abilities. Then, till over and mix the manure into the soil to a depth of 8 inches. Rake the area over and leave it to settle for at least seven days before planting.
