How to Use

How to use Top Soil...

Top Soil has a range of uses around the garden and is suitable for landscaping, in-filling, creating flower beds, improving existing soil quality or creating a level surface ready for turfing. It can be simply raked out or incorporated with 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 preparing ground prior to turfing, cultivate the top layer of soil to a depth of 100mm and apply Top Soil to build up area where existing topsoil is thin and level off any dips or falls. Rake level to create a fine tilth and apply a starter fertiliser (if required) and firm down with a garden roller. Finally water before laying turf.

For creating raised beds, see our Veggie Gold Compost or Premium Blend Topsoil.

When to use Top Soil...

It is suitable for use all year round.

Product Guidance

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.
  • Product can be applied safely in gardens with animals and children. 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.
