Many people have questioned, "What is the purpose of topsoil?" Without topsoil during seeding, the chances of having a bright green lawn are greatly reduced. Topsoil is used for two primary reasons, the first reason being protection. A layer of topsoil provides seeds an optimal place to grow, with protection from sunlight, moisture, and invasive pests. The second reason is to provide essential nutrients for the seeds to grow. The more high quality nutrients in the topsoil, the brighter and better your lawn will look.
• Ground Preparation – Before seeding your new lawn, it is vital that you prepare the ground in your yard first. Break up the soil and remove unwanted debris such as stones, twigs, or weeds. This will enable the grass to grow fuller and brighter when the roots take place in the soil.
• Compost –Topsoil works best when you add a layer of compost underneath. The compost works as a barrier between the natural soil and the topsoil, holding in moisture while helping to prevent grass from falling victim to dry spells and pests.
• Topsoil Depth – Topsoil for new lawns should be about three to six inches in depth. The amount you require will depend on a number of factors. These factors can include your environment, the type of grass seed you're using, and the weather patterns in your area.
• Existing Lawns – Not only is topsoil great for seeding a new lawn. It is also an excellent tool for springtime gardening care as well. Using a thin layer of topsoil before the springs first feeding will provide a much-needed nutrient boost for the plants, while also fortifying the soil.
• Topsoil Selection – Every topsoil is made differently. The key to finding the right topsoil always involves two key factors: your local environment, and the grass you are trying to grow.
