Topsoil is the top 10 to 30 cm of soil in the ground, it differs from soil beneath this layer by having an organic matter content. Organic matter is the essential ingredient of any topsoil, it contains the essential nutrients that plants and micro organisms feed off and also improves the structure of the soil by enhancing drainage and locking in moisture around plant roots.
When choosing topsoil for purchase or looking to sell soil as topsoil it is important for the soil to be analysed for contamination and fertility. It is also important to take into account what the topsoil will be used for as different topsoils are fit for different purposes.
Topsoil are typically sourced from site clearance operations prior to development or virgin soils, not from soils recovered from building works and skip waste, which can contain large quantities of both physical and chemical contaminants.
Envirochem offers topsoil quality testing to BS3882:2015 as well as various other kinds of soil analysis. This comprehensive suite of tests includes vital analysis for crop growing such as soil pH, potash content, loss on ignition, soil organic matter, particle sizing and analysis for phytotoxic elements like copper, nickel and zinc.
