The Difference Between Topsoil and Compost

September 28, 2023
Homeowners ask what is the difference between Topsoil and Compost. Topsoil is the upper, outermost layer of soil having a high concentration of organic matter and microorganisms. RSSY stocks Landscape Topsoil that is screened and recommended for fill and landscape leveling only. RSSY has leaf compost that is a product that results from naturally decomposing organic material.
An alternative to compost is our RSSY Blends (70% hardwood fines and 30% Bloom DC Water’s Class A exceptional biosolids product) and is a great alternative to compost, providing organic matter as well as nutrients to stimulate improved plant growth of all kinds including turf, flowers, trees, and vegetable gardens.
