Topsoil is a classification of soil based on its position in the soil layers. It also implies that it is fertile and has a good soil texture. Pictured here is a pile of screened topsoil. It is hard to see the texture of the material, but it is a friable, sandy soil with a high organic content. It is excellent for your landscaping needs such as top dressing for turfgrass establishment or improving the planting soil for your landscape plantings of trees and shrubs. The frequent use is to topdress lawn areas when trying to improve a lawn. Certainly, it is better than digging up the lawn area to discover how many rocks tend to be in the native soil. The work to create a good seed bed in most areas is a lot harder than having the material delivered and putting it on top of whatever is there.
Our screened loam has rocks that are larger than 5/8" minus removed through the screening process and have passed through a harp-type screen to help fluff up the soil and prevent any naturally-occurring clumps. This makes it easier to rake out and spread. For a better description of the component classification of loam, please go to the page on soil types.
We invite you to come to the yard and see the screened topsoil that we produce in the stockpile to confirm that it will meet your needs.
