How to Use
Creating new beds
When creating a new bed in your garden you may find yourself short of soil. Use Westland Top Soil to increase the volume and depth of soil for your new bed, giving your plants and trees the perfect start for quick establishment.
Building up beds and borders
Top Soil can be used to raise beds which have sunken over the years. Place a 7-10 cm layer on beds and borders prior to planting or in thinner layers around existing plants. The fresh soil provides a rich supply of organic matter acting as a fresh source of nutrition for new and established plants.
Help improve poor soil in your garden by mixing 50:50 with Top Soil and digging in. This will improve soil structure and add humus helping to rejuvenate the soil.
Use Westland Top Soil to cover the top 3-4 cm of the lawn area and level using the straight edge of a wooden baton and spirit level.
Top Tip: For the best result cover the finished area with a thin layer of Gro-Sure Lawn Seeding Soil (1-2 cm) and sow lawn seed into this layer to guarantee germination and establishment of the lawn.
To fill in and level depressions in the lawn cut a cross shape in the turf and peel back from the hollow. Fill the hollows to the required level with Top Soil and cover with the turf again.
