What is multi-purpose topsoil?

Topsoil is the outmost layer of the soil, generally the top depth of 50 – 200mm. High in micro-organisms and organic matter, it provides the ideal conditions for plants to set root.

How to use Multipurpose Top Soil...

Multipurpose Top Soil can be simply raked out or incorporated into the existing soil.

For landscaping and restoring areas for planting, use the top soil to improve quality or build up existing soil by raking out between 50 – 200 mm in depth of top soil depending upon existing soil quality. Try to cultivate existing soil before applying new top soil so as to avoid creating a hard pan in the sub layer.

For creating raised beds, fill the bottom 150 – 200 mm of the bed with stoney soil, gravel or broken brick to provide drainage and create a sub layer (our Top Soil standard grade will be ideal for this with some added broken bricks or stones from the garden). Fill a further 150 – 200 mm with top soil or Multipurpose Top Soil ready for planting.

For establishing vegetable patches, simply dig over area of existing soil and rake out Multipurpose Top Soil to a depth of 100 – 200 mm then allow soil to settle for a short period before planting.

When to use Multipurpose Top Soil...

It is suitable for use all year round.

Product Guidance

  • Ideally use within 1 year of purchase.
  • As with all gardening activities, please wear gloves and wash hands when finished and before eating or drinking any thing.
  • Store unused products away from potential contamination such as chemicals or weed killers.
  • To avoid danger of suffocation, keep bags away from babies and children.
  • As with all natural materials, photos may vary slightly from the actual product.
  • Every effort has been made to ensure the compost contains no germs, sharp fragments, toxins or regenerative plant parts. However the compost producer can not guarantee that they will never be present. As with all products of this type, wear gloves when handling and wash hands after use.
  • Some animals may be attracted to manures – manure can be dug in to reduce the attraction although it will not be harmful to them.
  • During storage, organic materials may develop a white mould, this is completely natural and harmless and will soon disappear when agitated.
  • When soil is disturbed and organic matter applied, mushrooms and other types on fungi may temporarily appear. This is great news as the natural soil web is returning to your garden, just hoe them over and they will disappear. They are harmless.

"Excellent quality topsoil for our raised veg beds. Ornamental bark was also excellent. Couldn't hope for a better product.Delivery was prompt and although no crane for our delivery area any longer, he was able to use big trolley to manoeuvre into a convenient place. This is my 4th purchase and also have received excellent products time after time. Excellent value for money compared to other companies too!"
