What is topsoil?

topsoil


The upper layer of soil, which is nutrient rich and has a high degree of organic matter is known as Topsoil. 

It is produced over thousands of years by the gradual weathering of rocks and the rotting away of organic matter. 

Many properties have poor quality soil due to the soil having been stripped away or contaminated during the building process. This is a particularly notable problem in new builds. By replacing or covering the top layer of soil with nutrient-rich topsoil one can improve the overall nutrient balance of an area.

Good quality topsoil should always meet standards set out by British Standards 3882:2007BS 3882 soil is also known as “screened topsoil” which refers to the process of sifting/screening the soil to remove rocks, clumps and other matter to give a smoother, more even consistency to the soil.

What is Topsoil Used For?

Topsoil is often used to replace or cover the existing soil in a property. In properties without any natural soil (such as those with a courtyard), topsoil can be used to construct flower gardens, raised flower beds or borders around a path.

When planting trees or flowers, replacing the existing soil with topsoil will normally result in the vegetation growing quicker and more successfully.
