Soil and gardener
Topsoil is the lifeblood of every successful lawn and garden. As the name implies, topsoil is the uppermost natural layer of soil. It has the highest concentration of organic matter and microorganisms that are essential to plant growth and healthy root structure. At Gettysburg Landscape Yard, our topsoil is a high quality screened loam that is locally sourced from a farm just over the state line, in Carroll County, Maryland. Our Garden Mix is a 50/50 blend of screened loam and compost that your garden will love!
