Topsoil is soil that is removed from the surface of the land. Topsoil has organic matter in it from whatever grasses, leaves or bark that have decomposed on it. Many gardens have poor soil, such as those found behind new-build homes, where the natural topsoil has been stripped away during the construction process. Topsoil can be used to cover the ground, to create new beds, borders or to provide a base for turf laying or sowing grass seed.
Garden soil has its own texture composition of sand, silt and clay mixed into it. Garden soil has amendments, such as compost, added to it.
Triple mix is a combination of top soil, compost and peat moss and it’s the universally accepted soil mixture for gardening. Use it for ornamental gardens, fruit trees, roses, evergreens – anything. If you are just planting a few plants, a bag or two is probably enough but we also sell Triple Mix in 1/2 yard and yard quantities and in Super Sacs.
