What is Garden Soil?

Garden soil is a subsidiary of topsoil which includes a natural soil blend that promotes a healthy landscaping environment and fosters active plant growth. While topsoil at its core is essentially ‘refined earth’ taken from the surface layers of the ground - Garden Soil is a nutrient-rich blend, designed to help plants develop and reach their full potential.

Most soils will be made up of; Rock particles, Organic Matter, Water, Air, and Living organisms, though not all soils are made equal. Mixtures may vary significantly depending on location, mineral proportions, and soil formation processes. Generic soils will likely not be sufficient in aiding plant growth and landscape health which is why Garden Soils include a range of additives to act as a ‘conditioner’. These additives are commonly present in the form of manure and compost which add nutrient dense properties to the soil.

Most topsoil products are not compatible or optimised for gardens or flowerbeds, so looking into garden soil blends will typically yield better results and promote a healthier garden. Although Garden Soil is beneficial for most landscaping applications, mixtures can still be incredibly heavy or dense and are not recommended for use in containers or pots.

When to use Garden Soil

High quality soil is the foundation of plant and environmental health. Through the use of high-quality garden soils, the need for inorganic fertilisers and pesticides are reduced and the overall prosperity of a landscape is increased. So when should you use Garden Soil? For most gardeners the answer would be always. Garden soil is perhaps the most important thing in a garden, however, there are some exceptions.

When you should use Garden Soil

Garden Soil should be utilised across all landscaping and gardening activities which include the need for plant, tree, and garden nourishment. Good garden soil will be filled with vital nutrients, air, and essential minerals which are vital for plant growth and landscape health. If prosperity is a concern or a priority, it is always recommended that Garden Soil is looked into.

When you should consider Garden Soil alternatives

While Garden Soil can be beneficial for most applications, there are circumstances where it may not be needed. If you are undertaking bulk earthworks activities and are seeking fill materials - Garden Soil may not be your best alternative.

If you are unsure which soils or material is best suited for your unique applications, it is recommended you seek professional advice. Soil can play a vital part in all landscape projects so a professional opinion may prove to be cost-effective and beneficial now, and in the long-run.

When trying to determine which Garden Soil is best, project requirements and desired outcomes need to be placed at the forefront. Garden Soils can contain varying quantities of nutrients and organic/ inorganic materials to best suit specific applications and plant types. Some questions to keep in mind are:

  • Are native plants, trees, or shrubs involved in the project scope?
  • Are exotic plants, trees, or scrubs involved in the project scope?
  • Is Garden Soil being utilised for a vegetable garden or a feature plant display?

The most common ratios of Garden Soil include:

  • 25% Soil - 75% Compost
  • 50% Soil - 50% Compost
  • 25% Soilless Medium - 25% Soil - 50% Compost

Desired Garden Soil mixtures will definitely change depending on project requirements. If unsure which Garden Soil may be most beneficial or how much Garden soil you require - make sure to contact a professional.
