The Secret Is In Our Soil

You are what you eat! And the same could not be truer for your yard. The most important ingredient to getting a luscious, healthy lawn and flourishing garden is the soil. So, it’s important that the soil you use is well balanced in terms of its mineral content and pH levels.
What does that mean exactly? Don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb. Below are some key ingredients in our BigYellowBag Black Garden Soil.

 

Nutrients – Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium

Or, NPK! The Big Yellow Bag gardening topsoil offers a nicely balanced mixture of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. While these nutrients are not the only nutrients needed to make a rich soil – for instance zinc, calcium, molybdenum and magnesium all contribute to healthy plants and lawns – nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium certainly are the main three most important ones.hand-blackGardenSoil3

Why?
Because nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium each play an important role in how they feed your plants and help nourish them, thereby allowing them to grow.

Nitrogen deals with the health of plant leaves and stems and how well they grow. Plants quickly absorb it, which is good because nitrogen is water soluble, meaning it is easily diluted from the soil composition. But don’t think that means higher levels of nitrogen is better. Too much nitrogen will result in an overgrowth of foliage but at the cost of your blooms.

Phosphorus impacts the root growth and bloom. Soil geared more towards garden or flower growth tends to be more concentrated in phosphorus levels.
Lastly, and the one many consider the most important, is potassium. It’s seen as one of the more vital nutrients in soil because it is responsible for your plant’s overall health and is an immune system booster, making your garden resistant toward diseases.

 

Balanced Acid and Alkaline Ratios – pH levels 6 to 7

It doesn’t matter how well mixed your topsoil is in its NPK measurements if it does not have the right pH level. The pH level determines the solubility of your soil’s nutrients. It is the means to measure the levels of acidity and alkalinity in a mixture. While there are some plants and flowers that thrive in more acidic environments or more alkaline environment, the majority of plants and flowers grow best and last the longest in a neutral environment.

 

“I had a great experience. They left my delivery exactly where I had asked. When I called in the staff were very helpful, pleasant and professional. Will use their services again in the spring. The mixture of soil for my garden was very nice.”

-Natasha C, BigYellowBag Customer

 

The pH scale is a range from 0 to 14, zero being the most acidic and 14 being the most alkaline. So a neutral pH level would be 7. Soils ideal for the majority of flowers, plants, vegetables and grass have a pH level between 5.5 and 7.5. If your soil’s pH level goes too far either way on the spectrum, it will prevent nutrients like NPK from dissolving into the soil, which is needed in order for better absorption by your lawn and garden plants.
