Top Soil Processing
What is it?
Commercial top soil is created by people rather than formed naturally in nature.
Our parent soil is mined and brought to our processing location. We clear and screen out the unwanted particles, such as small pieces of wood and rock, and tumble the soil. Then, depending whether the topsoil will be used for landscaping or gardening or farming-related activities, we mix different ratios of organic matter, minerals and additives into the soil. For example, the percentage of sand, silt and clay, or the balance of micro-nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and sulfur), or the amount of compost - the amounts of all these additives are adjusted depending on how the topsoil will be used. After the soil has been cleared, screened and mixed, we bag the soil and it’s ready for delivery.
