The term top soil refers to the very top layer of soil, which usually varies between 5 inches and 12 inches in depth.
Top soil tends to be ordered in larger quantities, for larger projects and applications.
A common questions that exists about top soil, is in regards to the difference between top soil and garden soil.
Garden soil, in contrast to top soil is a more nutrient-dense, higher quality soil that is more expensive, and is used more often when nutrients are lacking in the soil to add required nutrients. Before purchasing more expensive garden soil for any given project it often helps to perform a soil analysis to check the breakdown of available nutrients in the soil.
