BLS 2 – Screened Natural Topsoil

BLS2 is a repurposed, single source, screened, natural topsoil, usually of sandy/clay loam classification. BLS 2 is a natural topsoil with good levels of natural retained organic matter content, has excellent moisture and nutrient retention capabilities.

A natural soil best suited to large scale, ground level, planting projects and for amenity lawns. BLS 2 is generally screened to 20mm but can be screened to 10mm on request. BLS 2 should be installed at depths no greater than 350-400mm; the greater depths should be built up with our subsoil products.

This soil is well suited to projects where permanent irrigation is not specified because of its good water retention properties. For plant establishment temporary irrigation maybe required.

Boughton Loam can provide additional advice if needed on how best to specify and install this topsoil.
