Top-Soil In Sticky

Have many tried this method? Does it get exhausted easily? Are root tabs a necessity? This seems a relatively cheap way to go, which is good.. Any thoughts?

New setup, what do you guys think?

So this is my somewhat new tank.. About 7 months old.. Helpful criticism is definitely welcome.. Does it look too linear? Maybe need higher peaks or more backround plants?
