Make The Most Of The Easter Break And Get Your Topsoil In!Posted on - 20.03.22
It's not very often that we get a nice easter weekend forecast. And while many people will be heading for the coast, or some of the beauty spots that we have here in the UK, you know that they will be busy. So why not start to create your own beauty spot right at home in your back garden!
Why Order Topsoil
When it comes to redesigning your garden or even just adding some life to your existing garden, you might be wondering why topsoil is so important? After all, we mention it a lot. The simple answer is the number of uses it has, combined with its useful properties.
The more important question is where can you add topsoil in your Stoke on Trent garden to get the most of it?
Of course, you might be thinking why would I add topsoil on top of my already full lawn. Simply to improve its appearance. This process is also known as topdressing. This is where you add a thin layer of topsoil over your grass and work it in with either a hard-bristled broom or the back of a rake. This will help to add nutrients to the soil and improve its health and appearance. The most ideal time is now, in April, when the grass is in its prime growth stage after a dormant winter.
Of course, if your lawn isn't already nice and full, and you are considering turfing, or adding grass seed, a loose layer of topsoil makes a great base for both options and will help it to take better than the existing ground underneath. If we are in a dry spell, remember to water appropriately.
Whether you have a raised border, a ground-level border, or even just a really thin border, making the most of it is as easy as adding the right nutrients to help your plants grow. Here in Stoke-on-Trent, we are known for having very clay-rich ground, which means that many plants will not take, or those that do will struggle to thrive. The best way to help this is to dig out a section of earth and replace it with fresh, nutrient-filled topsoil Stoke on Trent.
Alternatively, you can combine a mixture of the two, to help break up the clay over time.
If you are looking at investing more into raised borders, we offer fantastic and rustic railway sleepers in Stoke on Trent to help build up your sides.
