In Southern Ontario, many home gardeners and professional landscapers are using topsoil fertilizers that are organic. This means that the soil mix is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides as well as weeds and debris.
Using Organic Topsoil in Southern Ontario
In communities such as Oakville, Mississauga, Milton and Burlington, the soil can be heavy with sand and clay. In the past, chemical compounds have been used to break up the soil for planting. Unfortunately, these harmful chemicals found their way into our food, our air and our groundwater supply.
An organic topsoil amendment, such as high-fibre compost or mulch, is an effective way to manage the moisture and nutrients in our soil without these harmful side effects. Many executive golf course groundskeepers, professional landscapers and outdoor nursery owners are committed to using organic topsoil fertilizers to achieve lush and productive plant growth. Experienced home gardeners have been using the same natural methods for excellent results as well. In fact, a triple soil mix containing topsoil, compost and organic fibres has been one of the most common strategies to break up the soil as well as fertilize plants.
At Van Beek’s Garden Supply, we have offered organic topsoil fertilizers such as our triple soil mix since 1962, as well as topdressing, mulch, compost, sod and grass seed and other gardening materials.
