What is the Difference Between Topsoil and Compost?

As the name suggests, topsoil is the upper layer of a garden’s soil. This layer is filled with organic matter which is essential for plants to grow. Over time, however, this topsoil layer will become more shallow, giving plants less room to grow. Compost is effectively a concentrated version of topsoil which is what makes it so suited to plants that are grown in pots where nutrients are not replenished.

 

Why Should I Use Topsoil?

Topsoil is incredibly useful for helping improve the quality of your soil on a larger scale than compost. While compost can be useful for ‘topping up’ the quality of soil, it is not a very cost-effective option when there is a significant amount of ground that needs to be replenished. Topsoil provides a useful and affordable route for setting a strong foundation for your soil and can add more depth which some plants require to flourish.

 

Can I Mix Topsoil and Compost?

Combining topsoil and compost is very useful for potted plants. While topsoil will not be as nutrient-rich as compost, it provides a firm structure that retains water better. Compost alone will usually dry out quite quickly, so mixing the two is a good idea. Similarly, giving your topsoil a seasonal boost with a thin layer of compost can keep your soil packed with the organic matter that it needs.

 

How Much Topsoil Do I Need?

The amount of topsoil that your garden needs depends on the plants that you are planning on growing but, as a rule of thumb, anywhere between 2 and 8 inches in depth is ideal. For larger sites, this can require a significant amount of soil.
