Topsoil

Importance Of Topsoil In Lawn Care

LawnSafe provides a special top dressing to improve the structure, texture, and mineral content of the lawn.  The quality of topsoil is extremely important to ensure healthy grass.  As such we also help to improve the quality of the topsoil by adding special soil inoculants which will help the grass roots to grow and flourish.

Why Is The Quality So Important?

The topsoil is the upper level of soil, normally making up the upper  5-20 cm of the soil. This part of the soil is where the most organic matter can be found. Such matter is essential for the stability of the soil and the growth of the grass roots. Normally darker in colour than the soil below, this part of the soil should be aerated to ensure enough oxygen and nutrient flow to the plant roots. In addition, it is important to add fertilizer, compost and humates to this part of the soil for the perfect balance. Where needed we also add another layer of top dressing for improved lawn growth.

What To Look For When Selecting Topsoil

We are experts in the area of lawn care and just as you will have various types of soil with the pH levels differing, you should know that the balance of the soil should be perfect. We are able to assess the exact requirements and provide the perfect mix to ensure optimal lawn health in your area.

When selecting the mix one should inspect the soil to determine whether it is free of any debris. You don’t want small rocks or even fragments of such to be part of the mix. Ensure that any cobble fragments will be less than 4% of the soil if you want to have a good mix. We keep it in mind as well as the texture, drainage ability, and level of organic matter.
