Are you revamping your garden or landscaping the whole yard? Using the wrong materials can wash away all your efforts with a good rain, or your plants and flowers could fail to flourish due to lack of nutrients. Knowing the differences between garden soil and topsoil is an important detail when it comes to growth and the beauty of your garden. Today we are talking a little about topsoil.

Topsoil has varying amounts of decomposed plants, called organic matter. It's one of the components that gives topsoil proper drainage and its loose, easy to till qualities. This provides a nutrient rich environment in which growing plants thrive. Topsoil is ideal for general-purpose gardening and when mixed with Compost Based Soil amenders or Garden Soils aid in the overall health of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees. Topsoil is not recommended to be used in containers, garden soils is best for that.

Landscapers hired by construction companies use topsoil for large surfaces, for grading, for failing grass and/or leveling out existing lawns by blending into the grass by raking, evening out lawns in preparation for seeding. 

Dalton Trucking has a variety of soils to be used for landscapers or home do-it-yourself gardening projects. We deliver right to your home or business. If you have any questions for us, please call our Office.
