Our Multi-Purpose Topsoil has an outstanding mineral profile and acts as a nourishing base for planting areas and turf. It is a sandy loam topsoil with a fine texture. The incorporation of sand gives the soil excellent drainage capabilities, and the mixture is carefully formulated to ensure it can hold enough nutrients for turf to develop.
You will find that our topsoil significantly increases the quality of regular soil to help turf adapt to its environment. In many gardens and lawns, the quality of the soil is less than ideal, and our fine turfing topsoil helps to correct this.
You can use Multi-Purpose Topsoil as a base layer for new turf and as a mixing material with compost in planting and bedding areas. It is a general use soil suitable for gardening. The soil mixture contains sand, clay and silt. It has good texture without heavy clods of clay, so that roots can form, and new turf can adapt.
While you can lay turf without topsoil, the quality of the existing soil would have to be exceptional, which is rare. What topsoil does is allow roots to find the water they need to grow, and it soaks up rainwater to prevent pooling. The topsoil also contains microbes and bacteria, which are precursors for healthy turf.
Our Multi-Purpose Topsoil is the best quality, and we sell it in bulk bags of 600 litres and 1,000 litres at a time. If you need more, just adjust the quantity in your basket.
