Before we dive into the topsoil Less Mess offers, let’s start by learning the differences between soil and topsoil. Understanding the definition of these two will help you figure out the best product for your needs and ultimately help you reach your gardening and landscaping goals!
What is Soil?
Soil is a material made up of five ingredients: soil organic manner, minerals, living organisms, gas, and water. The soil organic manners are then divided into clay, sand, and silt. Soil has many different layers starting with what you see on the ground, humus (see definition below). One layer right underneath is topsoil, followed by the subsoil layer, and then rock. When looking for the best layer of soil for your gardening project, you want topsoil as it has the most nutrients to promote plant growth.
What is Humus?
Humus is a fully decomposed organic manner that has reached the point when it will not break down any further. It is also referred to as mature compost and is an excellent source of nutrients in microbes, which increases healthy microbial activity in the garden to stimulate plant life.
What is Topsoil?
Topsoil is the uppermost layer of soil. It is the most nutrient-rich soil variety because of its high concentration of organic matter and microorganisms. Topsoil is one of the most basic ingredients in a healthy and productive garden. Read more to see what Less Mess topsoil is best for your home gardening project!
