Do I need top soil after tilling?

No, you don’t need to add top soil after tilling. Tilling breaks up the top layer of the soil and mixes it with the lower layers, so adding more topsoil would be redundant. In fact, adding too much topsoil can actually be harmful, as it can smother the plants’ roots and prevent them from getting enough air and water. If your garden is in need of some extra nutrients, you can add compost or manure to the soil instead.
