Do I need Topsoil?

Your laying a new lawn. You want it to be perfect, but you are unsure if the soil you have down is suitable.
 

Your Soil should not be filled with very large stones or any other debris. It Should have a crumbling fine texture which makes your soils easier to work with. Soil also needs to be fairly level, to ensure this we recommend having at least a 15 cm of depth to your soil. Topsoil should also have some nutrients. Once the turf is laid the nutrients will help the roots establish and encourage a healthier garden. So, if the soil in your garden is shallow, Stoney or very uneven, bringing in topsoil before you lay turf is a sensible investment.

 


Here at South Devon Turf we have a remarkable Blended Loam. Our Blended loam consists of a dry stored, screened to 15 mill topsoil, which we delicately part mixed with a top of the range west country compost. This is filled with organic matter gives your soil the burst of nutrients it needs. Our Blended loam is a perfect all-rounder… whether you are turfing, seeding, planting or growing with our soil you will notice the difference. Have a look at our delivery page to see which delivery options suit you. 

 

How to work out how much soil you need?

  • 1 ton of topsoil covers an area of 30 m2 to the depth of an inch or 25mm
  • 1 Ton of topsoil is approximately 0.7 cubic Meters
  • To convert soil from cubic meters into tons you need to multiply the cubic meterage by 1.33, this will give you Tons.

 

How to work out raised beds/ flower beds/ volume

work out your total area; in lenth and width e.g. 39ft x 6ft = 234 ft.

Times them together and divide by 10.8, this will give you square meters

Ignore this if you have already got the area in meters.

Then times the depth in inches and then divide by 30, this will give you tons.

If you have the depth in centimetres, divide it by 2.5, this will give you inches.

If you have the Depth in centimetres divide it by 2.5, this will give you inches.
 

  • There are 27 Cubic feet in a ton.
