Product description Winter Mix topsoil is created by mixing sandy loam, black mulch compost and sand then run through a 3/8 inch screen. This soil is excellent for new lawns, shrubs and trees. It has a tendency to form a crusty layer when left spread and unplanted so it is not recommended for vegetables or fragile annuals as this kind of seed takes a little longer to come up through the crust. This is a good draining soil and falls within the optimum pH scale that is considered desirable for a wide range of general ornamental plants and turf.
