One of the most common questions we get asked is ‘What top soil should I use?’ The answer is – a good quality sandy loam. Over the last 30 years we have used a number of different soils or sands for preparation of turf areas all over Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, and have always found a good sandy loam does the best job.
Should I use commercial “under turf” top soils?
There are a number of ‘under turf’ mixes available at landscape supplies and hardware stores, just be sure it does not contain any foreign matter like paper pulp, broken up bricks or concrete, sticks or other vegetation matter.
If in doubt, ask your supplier or feel free to call or email CT Lawns for further advice.
