What Is Topsoil?
Topsoil is exactly what it says on the tin, the top layer of soil, usually 5-10 inches deep. Topsoil is made up of broken down minerals (stones), organic matter (grass, leaves etc), water and air. This is why topsoil is high in nutrients and where the roots of plants are usually found.
Topsoil can take over 100 years to form due to it being made up of broken down rock particles formed by weathering mixed in with other decaying organic matter. Thus you can start to understand why quality is so important.
What does BS3882:2015 mean?
BS3882:2015 sets out the British standards for Multipurpose and Premium topsoil. The classification is based on various components such as texture, acidity and contaminants. It also contains information on testing, sampling and how soil should be handled to avoid it being degraded.
Should I Buy Multipurpose Or Premium Topsoil?
Our Multipurpose topsoil is our bestseller as it literally can be used for anything so long as you are willing to put a bit of extra work in. It is a nutrient rich soil making it the perfect growing medium however as it is screened to 10-20mm you may want to remove some of the stones. Stones are of course necessary to meet British standards for drainage purposes.
Premium Topsoil is also a nutrient rich soil but in drier months it can become quite a sandy product so may need more watering. As it is screened down to 5-10mm it requires less work and can be more aesthetically pleasing.
What does Screened Topsoil Mean?
Screening is basically a filtering process to remove large particles from the topsoil. Our multipurpose topsoil is put through our screening machine which removes any stones/clumps etc larger than 20mm.
What Is The Difference Between Topsoil And The Soil In My Garden?
As previously mentioned, good topsoil can take 100 years to break down. The soil in your garden, especially if it is in a new build property, usually isn't the best for plants. If your home was previously owned by a keen gardener there is a chance the soil will be fine but if not a layer of quality topsoil will be a huge benefit to your garden.
