The top layer of soil is the most important for nourishing plants. Topsoil varies in its composition depending on the region. Georgia’s topsoil is a dense type of soil, but it is wonderful for giving native plants exactly the right balance of acidity and pH balance they need. At Green Landscape Supply, we offer top-quality Georgia topsoil. We do not carry topsoil brought in from other regions, only local GA soil. When you need new topsoil for your landscaping or garden project, come see us at our locations in Norcross and Buford.

Top soilTopsoil usually makes up the top 12-18 inches of soil and contains more organic material than deeper depths of soil. As plants and animals decompose, the nutrients are added to the top layer of soil, making this a richer soil that is ideal for nourishing seeds and plants. In landscaping and garden areas, topsoil can become depleted if mulch, compost, fertilizer and organic material are not reintroduced. At Green Landscape Supply, we offer a quality GA topsoil that can be used to enhance existing soil, for leveling or be used in raised gardens or planters.

Uses for GA Topsoil

When do you need topsoil for landscaping? Topsoil does contain organic material, but it does not have additives, like compost or fertilizers added, so it is not usually the first choice for planting. We source all of our topsoil from Georgia. When new developments remove topsoil, we take that local soil and filter and loosen it to create our topsoil. This is a basic soil that can be used for filling and leveling. Topsoil is great for:

  • Creating a level layer of soil for your new sod or lawn
  • Filling in the first soil layers in raised gardens or planters
  • Leveling low areas in your yard
  • Reducing thatch and weeds on your lawn

When you need basic soil for your landscaping project in the Atlanta area, you want true Georgia topsoil. Come see us at Green Landscape Supply for quality GA topsoil. We offer delivery within 20 miles of our locations in Norcross and Buford. Stop by and check out all our soil options, as well as our large selection of quality landscape materials.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future.
