to planting or in thinner layers around existing plants. The fresh soil provides a rich supply of organic matter acting as a fresh
source of nutrition for new and established plants.

Levelling Lawns: To fill in and level depressions in the lawn cut a cross shape in the turf and peel back from the hollow. Fill the hollows to the required level with Top Soil and cover with the turf again.

Making compost mixes
