Why Choose Turf Online For Your Topsoil?

“I think the answer lies in the soil” was a catchphrase 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.

Understanding Soil Quality

Soil qualities vary from place to place. The best and most versatile soil is defined as grade 1, just 2.5% of UK soils are classed by DEFRA as grade 1. At Turfonline we 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.

Which Soil is Best For Turfing?

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.
