Additional Soil Assessment Criteria

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.

Very pleased with this, arrived on time and the consistency is great for us. We've spread it (mixed in 2:1 ratio with 2 parts of the Premium Planting Loam to 1 part Mushroom Compost) across our 3 x raised veg beds and it certainly seems to be doing the trick, - everything growing well and looking / tasting very healthy. Much better value buying like this than smaller bags. We filled 3no. 3m x 1.2m beds with the 2 bags loam and 1 bag of Mushroom Compost, and still had enough extra to do a couple of the garden borders so am also pleased with the calculator on the website as was really quite accurate. Will certainly buy again next year when we have to do a top up mulch and have already recommended to the father-in-law!

This is my second delivery of planting loam which proves how good it seems to be to me! Ordering was easy and delivery (via TPN and then Hampson Haulage) was first rate, as before.

Just what I needed to plant up a new 10m hedge in poor ground. Seems to be an excellent product (though I can't judge growing results yet) and if it proves as successful as other products I've used from CPA I shall be delighted. Delivery prompt and efficient as usual.

I bought this together with a bag of compost. Appears to be good quality, but will need to wait to see the veg? These two bags filled two and a half raised beds (2.4x1.2m).

Great product. Quite sandy but virtually no stuff you don’t want in there. We’ve had 5 bags and it all seems good.
