Soil is the foundation of our landscape. Topsoil, as the name implies, is the uppermost layer of soil. It’s rich in minerals, nutrients and organic matter, resulting in a nutritious material for plants and trees.
Choosing quality topsoil is one of the most important parts of gardening. You may need topsoil for filling ruts in your yard, planting a new garden or raised bed, or raising the level of the soil around your foundation.
When would you want to use topsoil, compost, or garden mix? Will horse manure bedding compost work as part of my soil mix…what would I use that for?
