BLS Plus – Natural Topsoil

BLS Plus is a repurposed, single source, screened, natural topsoil, usually of medium clay loam classification with added natural, organic, vegetative digestate bi-product. BLS Plus is a natural topsoil with boosted organic matter content, has excellent moisture and nutrient retention capabilities.

It is a premium soil best suited to large scale, ground level, planting projects and should be installed at depths no greater than 350-400mm. The greater depths should be built up with our subsoil products. BLS Plus is well suited to projects where permanent irrigation is not specified because of its good water retention properties. For plant establishment, temporary irrigation may be required.

For lawns please refer to our BLS 2 topsoil which has lower organic matter content, and therefore creates a more stable tilth for lawns. Boughton Loam can provide additional advice if needed on how best to specify and install this topsoil.
