BL 1 – Natural Topsoil

We can provide natural unscreened ‘as dug’ topsoil to meet most landscaping and horticultural requirements. All ‘as dug topsoils’ are able to support natural wildlife habitats, future sustainability and are generally certified BS3882.

Our ‘as dug’ topsoil has no deleterious materials to ensure a well-developed fine to medium granular structure to the soil. The completely natural soil provides the necessary communities of microbes, fungi and bacteria that are essential for healthy plant growth. Developed in nature, natural as dug soil has a more sustainable mineral and nutrient composition than manufactured substitutes.

We do not use recycled soils because they cannot be relied on to be of a consistent quality, with inconsistent material only inconsistent results can be expected.
