    Topsoil is not aged compost... topsoil has mineral components that are permanent parts of the soil,,, such as sand and clay... they do not reduce in size until they are virtually nonexistant as compost does...

    That is why, when you add topsoil year after year the elevation will rise... when you add compost year after year the ground level stays the same... the soil is enriched with OM and dirt is just mineral particles w/out OM...

    I hope my comments make more sense this time... :)
