Topsoil or Topsoil Compost

Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them accordingly.

We sell Topsoil and Topsoil Compost, which is a mix of topsoil and pure compost—either a sawdust and horse manure aged 2 years, or a cow manure, alfalfa, and brome mix aged 2 years.


Topsoil is the uppermost layer of soil, usually darker and richer than the subsoil and with a higher content of nutrients and organic matter. Nutrients are released from organic matter here and it is where the majority of soil-dwelling organisms live. Be sure any topsoil you buy from a lawn and garden center has a dark color and a rich feel. The best type of topsoil is a dark loamy dirt, rich in organic matter to hold moisture but with enough coarse particles to allow good drainage. When you need to have a spectacular garden, this is a very good investment.
