Mulch and Topsoil would be your Search the List category for topsoil.


For potting soil in bulk, if that is what you mean, then contact local plant centers and greenhouses, though most do not carry it in bulk anymore - just bagged. For most purposes, and certainly if looking for a truckload, topsoil or topsoil mixed with sand and peat for aeration and reducing compaction would be the normal method. Check your state Cooperative Extension Service or horticultural website for how to "amend" topsoil for planting various types of plants. Common topsoil additives, in varying proportions and depending on the species of plants being put in, include peat, fishmeal, sawdust, compost, sand, lime, sulfur, and vermiculite as well as starter fertilizers. For general purposes 1/2 to 2 parts sand per part topsoil (depending on whether loamy, normal or clayey topsoil) and 0 to 1 part peat (depending on whether it needs aeration - if clayey - or mosture retention - if sandy/loamy) per part of topsoil is a normal ratio for most landscaping plantings and planter beds.
