Topsoil is one of the most crucial elements of your landscape. But, if you’re like most people, you probably don’t think too much about it. If you want your grass and gardens to be as full, lush, and bountiful as possible, then you really need to give topsoil the attention that it demands.
Topsoil, aptly named, as it is the topmost layer of soil, is crucial for the health of all of your plants, including your lawn. It’s in this layer of the soil that all types of flora grow. In order for your flowers, veggies, trees, and grass to be as healthy as possible, you need to provide them with premium-quality topsoil.
Topsoil should be rich in the nutrients that plants need to grow. If it isn’t, they aren’t going to flourish. Unfortunately, in a lot of locations on Long Island, the natural topsoil isn’t as healthy as plants need it to be. But, there’s a way that you can ensure your gardens and lawn get the nutrient-rich topsoil that they need. How? – By feeding them with high-quality topsoil.
If you’ve never ordered topsoil before, here are some important things to consider before you make a purchase and schedule a delivery.
Purchase From a Reputable Provider
Not all topsoil is the same. Unfortunately, many landscaping companies in the area carry poor-quality topsoil. It may be laden with pesticides, herbicides, chemical residues, seeds from weeds, and various other products that you probably aren’t going to want in your garden.
A reputable landscape product supplier will only carry the highest quality topsoil. How can you tell if they really offer the good stuff? Find out if it’s screened. The process of screening removes all of those undesirable components mentioned above, which drastically improves the quality of the soil. You can also inquire about how the soil was sourced. For example, you might want to consider using a company that offers GMO-free topsoil.
The reputation of the supplier will say a lot about the type of soil they carry. If they’ve been around for years and service a large customer-base, then it’s very likely that they carry the “good stuff” in terms of topsoil.
Consider the Amount You Need
Before you schedule a topsoil delivery, make sure you know how much you are going to need. Remember that topsoil is delivered by the yard, and obviously, you’re going to need a lot more soil to cover your entire backyard then you’ll need for a small vegetable patch. If you aren’t sure how much you need, measure the space. Let the landscaping company know what the dimensions are; a quality company will be more than happy to help you figure out how many yards of topsoil you’ll need.
Choose a Spot for the Delivery
Lastly, make sure that you select the location for the delivery before it arrives. Consider where you will be using the topsoil and choose a location that is easily accessible. The less you have to walk back and forth to the pile, the better. Also, you should try to choose the most level location possible. If it has a large slope, the soil is going to roll down, which can make it difficult to shovel and move.
Make sure you let the landscaping company know where you want the soil dropped before they arrive. You should also prep the space before the soil arrives. For example, remove any cars, furniture, and any other obstructions that might be in the way. If it’s near a drain, cover it before with cardboard or a tarp before the soil arrives. If it’s dropped over an open drain, you’ll lose a lot of your soil; plus, you’ll have to contend with a major clog, possible flooding, and potentially costly repairs.
