What is topsoil?

Mississauga, Canada

Topsoil is the top layer of earth’s surface. It is black in color and rich in organic matter. It is very useful for growing plants. They are often called as black dirt. I had set a beautiful garden in my new house. I didn't use any types of harmful fertilizers in my garden. Topsoil is available in nurseries and home improvement stores.
I sought the help of topsoil suppliers in Mississauga (https://peellandscapedepot.com/bulk-material/top-soil/) . Most of us are not aware of advantages of topsoil in our garden. Topsoil is rich in humus which helps plants to grow faster. I have got a better result when I applied topsoil for my plants. Elements like carbon, oxygen, hydrogen are essential for plant growth. Apart from these elements, some nutrients are also important which can be provided by topsoils. Why should we invite health problems by applying harmful fertilizers?
When I decide to start a garden, I checked the soi. I recognized that it needs fertilizers for better results. There are several suppliers in our city. If you are planning a garden project, you can use topsoils instead of harmful fertilizers.

Thanks for the info. In addition, compost is different from top soil.
