Top soil is – as you’d expect - the uppermost layer of mud that covers your garden, and is ideal if you are cultivating a vegetable plot or a flower bed.
The Top Soils sold by Howarth Timber & Building Supplies are made from a loamy sand, which means that the product is made up of sand, silt (soil) and a small amount of clay. Loam is the best form of soil for growing plants, as it is high in nutrients and being organic, it retains water well.
Loam Soil is soft to the touch, but crumbles when picked up, which makes it ideal for most garden applications, from creating new beds, vegetable plots, turfing, sowing grass seed and growing a variety of plants and vegetables. It is ideal to use if there is no natural soil in your garden or if your existing soil is poor quality and/or damaged.
