As well as the standard testing required for BS3882:2015/subsoils BS8601:2013 we also test to determine the levels of potential contaminants in relation to the topsoil end use. We have tested our soil against the residential end use listed Sustainable for Use Levels (S4UL’s) in the Land Quality Management / Chartered Institute for Environmental Health Human Health Risk Assessment 2015.  We also take guidance of contaminants Suggested Guideline Values from:

  • DEFRA sp1010 Cat 4 2014
  • Dutch Action Value (DAV)
  • BRE Special Digest 1:205 (BRE)
  • Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012

Of the potential contaminates identified using the above guidance none of the results exceeded the guideline values. If there is site specific criteria we recommend independent testing and are happy to separately stockpile individual orders for separate testing to ensure consistency with site specific criteria.

Ordered a bulk bag of topsoil as I have done before along with other products from CPA and as usual it is a pretty good quality product at a fair price, delivered FOC on time with no hassle and dropped just where it was needed. All in all great service and product. Thanks will continue to use CPA for my needs in the future.

Superb quality soil very happy my only issue is being left with wooded pallet in my yard to be disposed of, the driver explained they do not operate a recycling service only deliver pallets not take them back. I do not have a vehicle to dispose of the pallet so have to look at other options if disposal

I ordered topsoil and well rotted manure and both products were of a high quality. The topsoil had a nice structure and was easy to move and spread and the manure had a neutral smell and looked to be full of nutrients and organic matter. The delivery arrived when expected the the delivery man was very helpful.

Excellent product as always, but really don't understand why you use carriers that are ill equipped to move such bulky items. This last one didn't even have the benefit of a powered pallet truck and was handballing their loads. Rating for the product and good nature of the delivery driver...not the means and method.
