How much Topsoil OR Mulch do you need?


(Topsoil only)

What is Topsoil?

Topsoil is the upper, outermost layer of soil, usually the top 2 inches (5.1 cm) to 8 inches (20 cm). It has the highest concentration of organic matter and microorganisms and is where most of the Earth’s biological soil activity occurs. Plants generally concentrate their roots in and obtain most of their nutrients from this layer. The actual depth of the topsoil layer can be measured as the depth from the surface to the first densely packed soil layer known as subsoil. To get good quality topsoil is a very slow process. Up to 100 years per inch. Topsoil is formed by the weathering of rocks and the subsequent addition of organic matter from decaying plants, and animals. Decaying plant matter adds nutrients and essential minerals to the soil that promote plant growth.

Where does Tom’s Topsoil come From?

Tom mainly gets his soil from land that has been landscaped or recently re–developed.

In this picture Tom is collecting soil from a development on the outskirts of north Bristol. The soil is nutrient rich but as you can see full of tree roots and there were large rocks too.

This is pre–screened topsoil that gets taken back to Tom’s Yard and Recycling centre for screening and storage.

Screened topsoil becomes B Grade and when it is finer screened it becomes Tom’s “A Grade”

Topsoil can be bought loose, in bags or even collected from Tom’s Yard.

How is screened Topsoil Made?

Tom has his own “Power Screener” that is busy working every day

The “Power Screener” is like a giant sieve that is used to separate the large stones, roots and anything else that might be in the soil.

  1. Unscreened topsoil is loaded into the hopper at the top of the screener.
  2. The topsoil then falls into the drum at the centre of the machine.
  3. As the drum rotates it sievies the soil and only fine soil falls through the sides of the ready for collection and storage.
  4. Large stones or organic material such as tree roots falls out of the end of the drum

After the the screening process the finely screened topsoil is then stored dry undercover.
With Tom you’re not paying for rainwater!
