The best dirt. The value in loam is its qualities as a growing medium with good water retention, texture, pH and the ability to supply nutrients to the plants growing in it. In many situations, it can be up to 5 to 12 inches thick. In other places with development, the topsoil may have been stripped off leaving very little of the original native topsoil remaining.
Loam is often used in the same context as topsoil, but the technical definition of loam refers to a specific texture and specific soil components. This texture is the result of the combined amounts of sand, silt and clay that makes up most soils. The name does not imply any nutrient or organic content. We only bring this up in that the material we sell is often referred to as loam and it does have organic material content. Stop by to get a sample or purchase our high quality loam or topsoil.
