What is Topsoil?
Topsoil is the layer of soil where plants tend to grow. Why? Plants grow in this layer of soil because it is the top layer of soil, but that’s obvious, they can’t exactly grow underground, they need the sun to photosynthesise. However, plants need more than just the sun to grow healthy and produce healthy seeds. What are these things that plants need to grow? They need water that’s clean and fresh, they need minerals like nitrogen to make the nitrogen cycle possible and they need carbon to grow. They also need lots of room to grow and stretch their little roots. Unfortunately, today most topsoil, where your plants grow, is dense and degraded because it has been waterlogged and stripped of all its nutrients and bug life. These are the things that help with loosening up your topsoil. Bugs, mostly earthworms, tunnel through the ground and loosen it up. They also provide lot of the nutrients you will need. These are the most important components that your plants will need in their topsoil. If you’re new to gardening or just looking to make your plants a little greener, topsoil is probably something that you haven’t really thought about before, but it is something that you should really consider.
How to lay topsoil?
Okay, now you’ve had your topsoil delivered… what are you going to do with it? You could create a garden, use it as a base for new lawn, improve your current lawn or just simply cover your ground. If you are planning on laying an entirely new layer of soil first you need to remove anything that is not soil or sand from the ground. This includes any grass, flowers or stones. Thereafter you can begin laying your new topsoil overtop the previous soil. Now you need to ensure that the topsoil is level and about fifteen centimetres deep. Then, you need to use a rake or similar tool to blend the new and old soil together and to smooth it out. Lastly, you need to apply a weight to the ground to compact the topsoil. You do this because if the ground is too loose the roots of the plants will have nothing strong to hold on to and they won’t be sturdy. If you have bald spots on your grass or your grass is looking unattractive then you can add topsoil to those areas of your lawn. You need to add no more than one centimetre of topsoil. After applying the topsoil, you can throw a few grass seeds above it and water your grass.
