If you need garden topsoil to complete an outdoor project, you should analyze the soil conditions before making a phone call to a local supplier. The ground in Southern Ontario varies greatly according to location, and you need to know your options when it comes to providing a growing and planting surface with enough moisture and nutrients.
Choosing Garden Topsoil in Southern Ontario
The ground in areas such as Mississauga, Oakville and other suburbs south of Toronto contain varying degrees of clay and sand. If you’ve ever tried to plant in such conditions, you’ll know how difficult it can be to promote healthy plant growth in your yard or garden. In the past, professionals and homeowners have used a variety of products to break up the soil, but many of these introduce chemicals into our food, air and groundwater supply.
Fortunately, many residents and professionals in this area have attained excellent results through organic garden topsoils. A topsoil mixed with organic compost and other natural fibres (known as a triple mix) is an excellent way to break up clay and sand. Moisture and nutrients can also be maintained in a consistent manner. An organic mulch can be added to provide additional protection against insects and weeds. At Van Beek’s Garden Supply, we have been selling our triple soil mix in Southern Ontario since 1962.
