Can i mix topsoil and clay?
Hello, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post.
I am trying to make a useable garden out of a steep hill.
The garden is 10m wide and 20m long and rises up 5m from the house to the back fence.
I have dug out a small patio at the back of the house then built 2 tiered beds with a large level area for a lawn and 2 more large raised areas at the top by the fence.
I now have 2 very large piles of topsoil and clay,
I will use allot of the clay filling up the bottoms of the beds and raising the lawn areas.
I will have allot of clay left.
My question is can i mix the clay with topsoil to use as my top dressing for the lawn and flower beds?
This will save me buying in topsoil and paying to dispose of any excess clay.
The lawn and beds have drainage.
Any help would be gratefully received.
