Topsoil Supply

Topsoil is the extreme upper part of the Earth’s surface, extending downward only 2 – 12 inches (5.08 – 30.48 centimeters). It is inextricably intertwined with ecosystem stability, because it contains the necessary minerals and nutrients that living things — including the plants that directly or indirectly support thousands of species — require.
Formed through natural processes, it has multiple uses and varies in terms of composition. Typically, people use topsoil to improve the quality or quantity of soil in a given area. It is most commonly used in outdoor gardens and in lawns that need reseeding. Individuals also use it in landscaping to get a specific ground level height, which is sometimes necessary to comply with specific building regulations.
