Your topsoil is probably either high in clay or high in silt content. I suggest you try mixing in some chunkier composted bark and then loosen the soil a bit to help it take in water better. The mix you chose should drain well so try also adding some mulch to the surface as this will help prevent the soil from sealing or crusting which impedes water infiltration.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
