Why Our TopSoil?
"I think the answer lies in the soil" was a catch phrase used by a BBC gardener many years ago. How true these words are. Because when it comes to the quality of living plants, it is the soil which sustains them. By supplying oxygen, essential nutrients and the right balance of moisture.
Soil qualities vary from place to place. The best and most versatile soil is defined as grade 1, just 2.5% of uk soils is classed by DEFRA as grade 1. Both Turfland in Lancashire and Q Lawns in Norfolk produce high quality turf on these soils. For our soil production we reprocess some of the organic matter from the turf production process to create some of the best topsoil available.
For turfing purposes we recommend our top quality screened loam classified as grade 1. Organic and highly fertile it is ideal for blending with existing soil to increase fertility, moisture retention and drainage quality.
For MeadowMat we out-source a screened sandy soil low in nutrients because the wildflowers prefer impoverished soils.
