What is Topsoil? Do I need it prior to turf installation?

1 Answer

We don’t offer any of the bulk products that used for artificial grass sub base. People normally get such bulk products from local landscape products suppliers. As far as I know that some installers use the top soil for the top layer of the turf sub base buildup which goes underneath the turf. The typical sub base installation has two layers: drain rock and decomposed granite or sometimes top soil which needs to be coarse enough for drainage purpose, too fine of the top soil can be too dense to drain water properly.
