  • What is topsoil?
  • Is all topsoil the same?
  • Where should I place topsoil?
  • How can I choose the right kind of topsoil?

Our experienced team of landscapers here at Nature’s Management Group have your answers!

What Is Topsoil?

Topsoil is also called “black dirt.” It’s a mineral-rich top layer of soil that contains lots of nutrients from organic matter. The purpose of placing topsoil is to enrich or build up a soil-poor area.

Not All Created Equal

Various kinds of topsoil contain differing amounts of things like clay, sand, silt, and organic matter. Not just any kind will do! They are often mixed to specific ratios.

Placing Topsoil

Topsoil is useful in building raised garden beds, setting borders, fertilizing gardens with bad soil, and laying a base for sod. In cases where you simply need to add volume to an area, using topsoil from your own land may suffice.

To choose the most effective topsoil for your needs, think about the purpose and makeup of the soil. It’s important to understand things like pH and mineral index. If you feel confused by such details, an expert eye can help.
