Check Site Access

Firstly check to see if your site has access for a larger lorry to tip the topsoil safely, see dimensions below.  It is also important to consider any effect on local residents and any possible delivery time restrictions at your site.  If you have any concerns regarding the logistics of your delivery please discuss these with us before placing an order.

The dimensions below are based on the truck approaching the entrance in a straight line, if the approach access is at an angle then more space will be required.

Calculate How Much Topsoil You Need?

As with all of our products it is easy to calculate the approximate quantity of topsoil required.  Simply measure the length, width and depth of the area you wish to fill with topsoil in metres and multiply the three dimensions to give you the approximate volume required.

Length (m) X Width (m) X Depth (m) = Volume (m3)

Consider Organic Matter?

Organic matter is key to soil being able to function and provide growing plants with the nutrition and water they require to grow.  Our bulk topsoil conforms to BS3882 (2015) and contains sufficient soil organic matter for soil to function.  However we would recommend the addition of organic ammendments such as Field No.1 Organic Soil Improver or Field No.25 Max-mulch to optimise the growing conditions for the plants you intend to grow.  To find out more please speak with one of our team when placing your order.
