Topsoil makes up the upper level of the Earth's surface. This layer contains minerals, organic matter, water, and air. If erosion has depleted topsoil and an inadequate layer of soil is available for planting purposes, purchasing a commercial topsoil product and mixing it in with the natural dirt that is already present will level out the ground and provide the nutrients needed for healthy growth.
The Current Conditions
Natural topsoil will be a darker hue than the layers that are underneath it.
