I ordered your organic compost on the website. I spoke to a very helpful person at Field Compost who was able to help me and advise me which was the best product. I asked for delivery the following day and it turned up the following day! All very efficient. Thanks for great customer service - top class!
Lovely quality compost. Great quality, helpful delivery man. Well definitely be ordering again. Great soil improver. Black gold.
From the moment I ordered the Field No 1 organic Soil improver I was told when the product was to be delivered. And on the due date the product arrived. The delivery driver placed the Jumbo Bag precisely. In short a super product supplied and delivered by a super Company when you need it.
As always the team are friendly and efficient delivering to the exact spot at very short notice! The products are always good quality and exactly what you order. I would definitely recommend
I’ve used this company before for mulch, which was excellent, very good quality. The soil improved was equally good - rich and fine, and easy to shovel. The driver was also prompt and helpful. I’ll definitely use Field again.
Prompt and efficient service and quality product
I am a new gardner with lots of questions. The staff were patient and clear from start to finish, delivering an excellent product which has already helped the garden immensely. I can't recommend Field Compost Co highly enough!
My son uses your company regularly and his garden benefits from the compost . On his recommendation I ordered a bag . It was delivered as stated and I can see the improvements on my plants already . Thank you for your excellent service . Gerda Tooley
The products are excellent and I think we have had all forms of compost from you to date and in very large quantities. But the reason I am giving a 5 star review is because of the delivery service. We have a very difficult site to access - up a narrow lane, double gates have to be cleared and our BT cable hangs in just the right place to be snagged by the fork lift. Your delivery people take such care and get it right even though it takes many attempts. Other firms' delivery drivers just dump the dumpy bags in the lane and drive off. I would never use any other firm for compost because of the excellent product and the fantastic delivery service.
Lovely quality mulch, would recommend
Have used Field a number of times now and they are always helpful and willing to give good friendly advice. I wanted to change my last order at short notice and Nick could not have been more helpful.
Very helpful staff and delivery was good. Soil improver does seem to be making a real difference to the quality of our garden soil.
Delivered within a few days, and unloaded over a fence to exactly the right spot. Field Soil Improver is so easy to spread, very light, I just bucketed it out of the dumpy bag. No need to use a trowel. Took about 20 minutes to spread 400 litres. Delivery guys were v helpful and friendly.
Easy to order, quick, punctual delivery and great quality.
In our garden landscaping project, this has enabled reuse of existing topsoil, rather than carting off even more soil, and importing new topsoil. 1500 litre Jumbo bag was not difficult to dig out, as the product is light and does not hold much water. Quite dusty though. Needs turning in promptly so it does not blow about in a wind.
I bought a jumbo bag of no.1 to improve two very hard, virtually undigable (gravel based soil) beds. Soil now much easier to work and new plants are establishing well (one month later). Product and delivery exactly as promised.
This company was recommended to me by my neighbour & I wasn’t disappointed, ordering was easy, product arrived on time, the driver was most helpful & knowledgeable about the product.
Garden looking healthier. Have purchased in the past and products always as spec. Helpful, friendly delivery.
My garden is much happier with your composts and soils spread around. Very helpful delivery man.
I had to order a second bag as one large bag is never enough! Even now there are some parts of the garden where I could have spread it thicker. It makes the garden look lovely and in about 3 months time I look forward to appreciating what it does to my soil quality. And the snails don't like it! Also it arrived exactly as promised.

I used 1500L of Organic Soil Improver to make some new raised beds on our allotment in 2021, the harvests of all kinds of vegetables were excellent, so we have just taken delivery of another bag to top up the exisitng beds and again make new ones.
I used the Organic Soil Improver for the first time in 2021 in some new raised beds on a new allotment site, I was so pleased with the results that I ordered another 1500L bag for 2022 to add to the existing beds and also make some new ones. Our yields of all vegetables have been really excellent. The soil on our site is heavy clay and prone to waterlogging, I have not mixed the soil improver with the soil as recommended. Vegetables were mostly transplanted into the beds, but I found that seeds of parsnip and carrot germinated and grew perfectly well when sown directly into the top layer of soil improver.
This is the second time I have used this company and on both occasions the product has been good and the delivery process just what I need and what most compost companies don't provide.
Prompt delivery, very happy with the product. Still warm in the middle when it arrived!
This is my first order from Field Compost. They were very helpful about organising delivery and placed the two bags exactly where I requested. The soil improver looks really good quality and as stated on the website is easier to shovel than manure.
So impressed by the whole process of ordering, delivery and the actual product. We are tricky to find but the office staff took our directions and made sure the amazing delivery (lady) knew where to come. Just before arrival she phoned checked directions and the delivery itself was faultless and slick. Can not praise these guys highly enough. The product itself looks awesome too. Will defiantly use these guys again!
I called for advice, not knowing much. The help and advice was very good. Very happy with service delivery and product.
We love this blend and the other ones available from Field Compost. It's a delight to work with them. Ordering is easy, the price is great value and delivery is seamless, Thank you Matt
Absolutely fantastic service - fast delivery and friendly service.
First time I have used field compost and it won’t be the last. I order the jumbo bag of soil conditioner and was very impressed with the quality of the product. The delivery was right on time and kept me informed the whole way. I will certainly be using again and would highly Recommend.
Good product, prompt delivery. We've used various Field Compost products for top soil in raised beds, soil conditioning on flower beds and woodchip for paths. All have been good.
I love this product and so do my gardens!! Great people with an easy, efficient service.
Excellent quality product and brilliant service. Highly recommend!!
I have given the product this score because it appears to be of very good quality, and it spread very easily. However, the compost was sent on a heavy goods vehicle, which was extremely difficult to manoeuvre into my drive. It if wasn't for the co-operation of my neighbour, who allowed the vehicle right up to his front window, it would have been impossible. As there is plenty of space for large supermarket lorries, for example to come in easily, I think the size of your vehicle would pose a problem in a number of locations.
I am now 8 months in from using this soil improver in my flower beds. Everything is looking so much healthier than before. It was easy to work with and dig in. Just about to order some more. Would defiantly recommend. The only thing not looking so happy is a rhododendron which maybe didn’t like the PH but other than that everything looking great!
Ordererd big bag of the soil improver - it's a fantastic product, the price is right, delivery prompt and really nice staff. Very happy!
Great service and great product by the Field Team - the garden is now looking fab-u-lous!
Really pleased with this organic soil improver, as it was really good quality with no contaminants such as bits of plastic or glass, which is what I have found in other soil improvers that I have purchased. Free delivery was a bonus too.
Lawn top dressing has transformed my lawn. Was struggling because of poor drainage and soil. This has really made a difference and looking much thicker and greener. Have also purchased soil improver. Looking forward to seeing results but have no doubt it will improve the structure of my clay soil
Very happy with the product and the service. I contacted Field Compost on the morning of delivery to see if they could give me a delivery time. They called me straight back and I actually spoke to a human being (unusual these days), who was able to tell me that my order was on its way. The delivery guy was friendly and helpful too. Would recommend Field Compost.
Very happy with the product and the service. I phoned in the morning to check time of delivery and actually was able to speak to a very helpful human, which is quite something these days. I would definitely order from Field Compost again. They came as a recommendation from a friend whose uses them and I was very happy. The delivery man was friendly and helpful too.
We bought 1.5 tons of Organic Soil Improver and have been delighted with every aspect of the service and the quality of the product. We will be buying more this autumn and next spring too, based on our experience. The website was practical and made buying easy too - actually seeing the size of the very large bag that would be arriving in a website photo before placing the order ensured we were buying the right quantity and helped manage our expectations. Very happy customer.
In the last couple of months I've ordered topsoil and soil conditioner for two projects at opposite sides of my rear garden but similar in size and shape. This was in preparation for shrub planting. The products were both of excellent quality and in fact were commented on by a very experienced plantsman from the north easts leading garden centre. The comments were given whilst delivering my shrubs which he later planted. These products together with my hard work in preparing the ground resulted in an excellent quality soil. The top soil ordered was just to compensate for the turf removed but it blended in very well and had no stones or debris. The products were delivered in good time each time they were ordered. Contact with the company was easy (no hanging on) so I am very impressed with the products and service of this company.
Good stuff is this product. Delivered within a few days of ordering. 4 hours of barrowing and spreading on a sizeable, planted and sloped site. Job done. I have to mention the heat being emitted from the soil improver in the bag, it was literally warm to the the touch and almost smouldering. The garden looks great with a dark rich looking soil which shows off out plants wonderfully. Highly recommended product and company, who we will use again.
First time I have used this company and firstly the driver was excellent and delivered onto my property down a 200 ft pathway. I used this product on freshly rotovated clay chalk soil 4 weeks ago and the results have been fantastic well done Field Compost great Product Great Service Thank you Derek Epsom
Expert advice from Nicola and Chris ensuring I got the products I needed and in the correct quantities (I also ordered sand and grit). Further queries I had were promptly and fully answered. The ordering process was straightforward and everything was delivered on the specified date by a friendly and helpful driver - all bags placed perfectly in the front garden for me to access easily. The products themselves are excellent quality - I am really impressed. I wish I'd known about Field Compost Ltd a few years ago - I thoroughly recommend them. Jonathan, Cambridge
My order was relatively small but the service from the company was excellent. I've not used a great deal of the compost yet but it looks to be a very good product.
Living on heathland I have been using soil improver for a number of years, but quality from a variety of providers has been very mixed. I have been looking for a really rich, well graded product with plenty of organic matter and was really thrilled when the delivery from Field Compost arrived. The delivery arrived when they said it would (which is important when you are hanging around for a driver) and the product was excellent. I can really see the difference and as the spring shoots are starting to come up across our perennial borders, growth look health and strong.
Our order was processed quickly and the delivery was smooth. More importantly, the product was freshly packed so easy to lift and work with. Soil looks wonderful on the beds. Our only issue is we didn't order enough!
I used this when creating some new borders. I have never had such healthy and vigorous plants. Will definitely buy again!
So pleased with our lovely black rich compost. Easy to spread, lovely texture, no stones, twigs or foreign bodies. Just what our ex-building site new garden needs. Looking forward to seeing the boost it with give our plants.
Beautiful, light product - like black gold. So easy to work with and spread. Really pleased with the Organic Soil Improver. Thank you!
Great people to deal with, great product ,perfect for my wet heavy clay soil. 6 star service.
100% what it says on the tin ! Not one bit of stone, root, or any other surprise in the bag, a joy to barrow every last shovel full onto the garden beds. This is my third or fourth year of mixing this soil improver and it has made a vast difference to the condition of a clay rich soil. Good value .delivery prompt and drivers able to hit the spot with positioning the rather large bags. Overall very pleased all round and will continue to top up over the next years.
Excellent service. Friendly and efficient company, great product.
Good quality product exactly to the spec on the website. Order was dealt with promptly and delivery went exactly as requested in my absence. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that I will wait until the spring to know if my garden shows any improvement.
It is just a few weeks since I took delivery of Field Compost Ltd, Organic Soil Improver. I have a piece of garden at the front of my home that is very sandy and nothing was growing successfully in it. I stripped out the old planting and put in a bag and a half of the improver. I planted afresh and the results are amazing. The plants are looking healthy and prosperous. I would recommend this product to anyone with sandy soil.
Excellent product. Would definitely use it again
Great competitive products along with; friendly service and brilliant communication – what more could you ask for – I’ve used this firm for over 4 years for a range of their products.
Looks to be a very good product: nice and dark, well rotted and not at all unpleasant to handle. We ordered a bulk bag and it was lovely and warm just a few inches down, so the microbes were clearly doing their bit. We have very stony soil which we dug out out and replaced with the Soil Improver and organic compost mixed together. Only time will tell how well the plants grow but first signs are promising. We were unavoidably out when the delivery was made but the driver put the pallet exactly where I had asked and Chris from the office phoned to check all was OK. Good experience from start to finish and I would definitely use Field Compost again if I need to.
This product is so good. It's well made, easy to handle and very good value for money. The improvement in our heavy clay soil is so very obvious and so, of course, is the effect on everything we grow. Much better root growth so much stronger plants which are better able to stand up to the dry conditions here in East Anglia. Vegetable crops have been amazing since using this too.
This product is just what was needed to enrich our poor soil. The soil improver is of excellent quality, quite fine and with good texture. There was a slight smell when the product was first applied but it quickly dissipated.
A fantastic company who were in touch throughout to keep me updated. My delivery instructions were carried out exactly and the product itself is fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend both the product and the company. Thank you!
An efficient and professional company to deal with. Delivery man was excellent, especially as our road is very narrow. The mulch we ordered was top notch, very pleased.
This is a beautiful quality organic soil improving compost. We have very clay based soil in our garden and this amended the beds very nicely. Delivery and customer service was exceptional. We would highly recommend this company and this product and can't wait for our second order this Spring.
Excellent product that has spread well as a mulch on my garden. Effecient delivery arrangements. I will use again
Field Compost Company was very easy to deal with and good communicators. Very accommodating with timing of delivery and very accurate in depositing the load in exactly the right place. The compost itself was of fine, even consistency, no plastic bits, and easy to handle. It was on the dry side, but that was much better than being very wet. I can't give it five stars until I see the results on plant growth later in the season. I expect it has more value as a weed suppressor and improver of soil structure than in nutrient boost - which is just what I wanted.
I received the extra large bag of soil improver as agreed, after friendly discussions to ensure it met my requirements. It took a lot of barrowing to where it was needed (I have a gravel drive, so couldn't get it onto the garden), but it's been worth the effort. It's a lovely consistency, and the plants seem to be enjoying it!
Very prompt delivery, driver was extremely helpful in placing compost where I wanted it. Also he emptied one into my wheelbarrow as I am on my own. I would certainly recommend this product
Really professional service thank you.
Got help from seller. Item deliver on day promised. Left in area as asked.
very satisfied
I was impressed with the staff at Field Composts Ltd who were particularly helpful and friendly. The organic soil improver was delivered on time and fully met my expectations in terms of quality. For these reasons I would definitely use this supplier again.
Great service. Arrived promptly and good communication throughout.
Excellent product and prompt delivery.
I've been regenerating several perenial beds and creating a couple more and have used several bags of this conditioner to improve the soil and it has done the job for me. Actually even used this as a temporary multch in the summer when weeds were getting a bit out of control, will turn it into the soil in the autumn. I'll be ordering more of this as needed.
Great service throughout and good communication
Delivery driver was helpful and dropped the heavy load in a suitable area
Great service, god product, used to improve flower beds that are being replanted. Old plants have used up all the goodness in the soil over the years. Also use as a mulch around new plants to stop weeds.
I have silty soil that needs more humus and this does the job very well.
Impressed with attention given on delivery & am very pleased with the product, would be happy to buy again if need be.
Very helpful when I contacted them about the delivery.
Tots amaiz ballz..
I have very heavy soil which is like potters' clay when wet and concrete when dry. I used the Organic Soil Improver and it has made a lot of difference. I would certainly recommend it. Excellent service from The Field Compost company. They acknowledged my order immediately and contacted me very quickly to arrange a convenient delivery date and time.
This soil conditioner is so lovely you could almost eat it! Well not quite but it does look lovely and shovels beautifully
It seems an excellent product, light and fine in texture. The issue of delivery in a very narrow lane was well dealt with by a patient driver in a small 7.5 tonne lorry.
Excellent quality product, good customer service. Prompt delivery.
excellent for adding to poor soil
Very good quality material.
The delivery arrived when it was expected and the extra delivery notes were fully adhered to for location. The product delivered was the best quality and best value for money I have ever used. The bulk bag was filled to the brim with excellent quality compost and the client commented on its purity and standard. I would recommend this Company and products to anybody I know
This is a great sized bag off Compost, good value for money, and will be good for our plants, it was very quick delivery, and was placed perfectly on our drive for us.
This really helped my condition our soil and helped our plants. It arrived quickly. It is advisable to know where you want to place it and be there to receive it as it's a huge dumpy bag and impossible to move once it's situated until you use enough to drag it elsewhere.
