Topsoil is the most fertile layer of soil and contains the highest concentration of organic matter and nutrients. Topsoil is essential for plant growth, and it can also be used to improve the drainage and aeration of soil.

Improve Drainage & Aerate Your Soil

Topsoil can help to improve drainage which will prevent waterlogging and root rot. It can also improve oxygen levels in the soil which is essential for plant growth. Another tip to further improve drainage is to add cobbles to the bottom of your raised beds - check out our selection of cobbles, available in 800kg bags as well as handy 20kg bags.

Level The Ground With Topsoil

Topsoil can be used to level out the ground by adding a layer of soil to the low areas and then tamping it down to create a level surface.

This is a common way to level a lawn or other areas of your yard that are uneven. You can also use topsoil to level out the ground before installing a patio or other hardscape.

Here are some additional tips for using topsoil for leveling out the ground:

- Use a level to check the areas that you are leveling to make sure that they are even.

- Add the topsoil in thin layers and tamp it down each time to create a firm surface.

- Water the topsoil thoroughly after leveling to help it to settle.

- With proper care, your leveled surface will be smooth and even for years to come.

Use A Layer Of Topsoil To Care For Your New Lawn

Before laying a new lawn, remove any existing vegetation and debris. Then add around 5 - 6 inches of topsoil and level it with a rake before laying the turf. This will provide a good foundation for the lawn and help it to thrive. Water the topsoil thoroughly after laying the turf. Consider adding mulch to the lawn to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

With proper care, your new lawn will be lush and green in no time.
