When it comes to screened topsoil processing, Cedar Hill is a pioneer.

We've been providing high-quality screened topsoil to New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania-based customers since the 1960's. Our standards are rigorous: We don't judge topsoil by color … neither should you - color only indicates that it was weathered from a specific parent rock. Instead, we maintain effective quality control by submitting every screened topsoil batch for laboratory testing. We test our topsoil for sand, silt and clay content, as well as for pH, nutrients and organic matter. Test results help us amend soils to meet strict specifications, and it provides the information we need to create highly specialized topsoil mixes for complex applications, such as golf courses or athletic fields. To prove how much we believe in the importance of testing, request a soil test sheet with your delivery.  Here's what you can expect from our topsoil testing and analysis:

A sieve analysis shows you the percent of sand, silt and clay that make up the physical properties of our topsoil products. Sand is the primary ingredient that allows proper drainage and porosity. Sand particles range in size from 2 mm to .05 mm and should comprise 35%-80% of the topsoil. Silt (.05 mm to .002 mm) and clay (less than .002 mm) have water retention and cohesive properties necessary for good root structure -- each comprise between 10%-40% of the topsoil.

Topsoil is available in the perfect grade for your job!

pH is the acidity or alkalinity scale, ranging from 1 (extreme acid) to 14 (extreme alkaline), with 7 as neutral. The addition of lime will neutralize acidic soils to a more desirable pH. What pH level is best? That depends on the type of plant material designated for your particular planting area. We'll work with you to provide topsoil that has the pH level most appropriate for your application.

Nutrient analysis represents the topsoil's nutrient availability capacity. These nutrients may be adjusted by adding fertilizer. And organic matter represents the topsoil's ability to store moisture and nutrients for the plant as needed. We adjust both nutrient and organic matter levels based on the planting application - that ensures better landscaping and more robust plants.

We offer a range of screened topsoils to suit applications from home gardens to golf courses.
