Topsoil

High in nutrients and organic matter

Overview

High in nutrients and organic matter, topsoil will help your garden flourish.

Manufactured for general landscaping applications such as shrub, tree and vegetable planting or turfing. Our topsoils are supplied nationally and responsibly sourced.

Topsoil and subsoil can be matched to local conditions or, if those conditions aren’t suited to what you want to achieve, our team of experts can help you to change them.

For seeding and turfing you need to maximise moisture at the top levels; for deeper planting, you’re looking for a controlled flow of moisture into the underlying drainage; for delicate seeding and bedding, it’s about getting the right chemical and mineral balance for effective growth.

Whatever the planting or application, Topscape’s range of topsoil provides the perfect growing medium.

Why use Topsoil?

Additional info

British Standard Topsoil - In order to offer plants, turf, and other vegetation the best opportunity to grow, the topsoil must comprise of a certified combination of minerals, nutrients, water, organic matter, air, and living organisms. As this mix can be hard to achieve naturally, the British Standard for Topsoil was introduced to ensure landscape architects, contractors, and specifiers have a ready-made point of reference to enable them to supply and spread a safe and tested product.

BS 3882: 2015 ensures that each certified topsoil mix contains the correct pH level, to determine the correct acid/alkaline balance; the ideal physical composition to help avoid compaction; the right electrical conductivity value; as well as the maximum level of stones or sharps permitted.

Topsoil manufacturers, including Tarmac Topscape solutions range, are also regularly tested in line with BS 3882: 2015 standards to ensure all products are suitable for the intended end uses. Whilst different geographic areas will each have a unique geological composition – some may contain more sand, limestone or chalk than others – BS-certified topsoil can be used for all general-purpose applications, such as lawns or communal grassed areas across the country. However, for a topsoil with a specific end-use, such as a low nutrient topsoil for a wild flower meadow, it is possible to offer bespoke topsoil mixing, in line with BS 3882: 2015.
