Excellent product. Well palleted with shrinkwrap, stong bags, no tears or spillage, driver got the pallet next to the garden. I have had several bulk orders from CPA Horticulture over the years and I've always been satisfied.

This is my second order, first in 2019. I was very pleased then and with the look of the bark as a mulch in my borders. My repeat order arrived last Monday after an order process in which I made a silly mistake but which was quickly rectified to my complete satisfaction by Toby at CPA. Very pleased with my new delivery, highly recommend the company for efficiency and great customer service.

Estimated 40 bags based on the calculator and needed 36! Using it over fabric membrane to suppress weeds under a new 20m hedge. Nice big chunks that hopefully won't blow away and am pleased so far - and looks exactly like the sample picture on the website. Delivery was on time and friendly. Would order from CPA again.

I have used play bark in a previous garden from another supplier. I used CPA’s online calculator to determine how much I would need. I realised soon after that I had ordered far too much for the area I wanted to cover which took approximately half the amount. I am in the process of creating another bed to take the remainder. The delivery driver was brilliant. He wheeled the pallet straight into my garage. Five stars go to him as well as the product. Fewer stars for the online calculator.

Great quality product, nice size pieces not all full of shredded cheap stuff to bulk the bag out. I use it for my border not a play area. Quick delivery. Second time I have used this company & they always do what they say they are going to do us delivery dates etc.

Had two large deliveries of these last year when we had our garden landscaped. There was very little supply available when we ordered the second delivery to finish the job off and the customer service team were fantastic managing to get the bark so we could finish. The bark is great and still looks good after a year. We ordered another 10 bags to top up this spring and it came quickly, with good delivery updates and quality bark again. Highly recommended

I’ve received delivery of 2 separate loads and both drivers have been helpful and helpfull and made every effort to get the load where I wanted it. The nuggets are various sizes as detailed ad a lovely rich colour . Delighted with my purchase and would recommend to anyone. Also the cheapest I found and great to have the option of bags or bulk bags

Anna from Bedford on 25/04/2019

The product is very good. However the amount we ordered was not enough and we were low of 3 x 70l bags. It is really dissapointing that the company does not have option to purchase single bag of 70l. The minimum is 10 bags and that would be too much for us. We needed to order from other place and I am not sure about the quality and size of other pine nuggets. If they are different we will need to mix them so you want see that difference. Otherwise very good product and service. Thanks

Ordered 4,200 litres of this product to create a woodland walk through my garden, the bark is absolutely lovely and has given me another idea for another part of a large country garden. Wasted hundreds of pounds over the years buying from the like of B & Q etc, but is nowhere as good as this. Absolutely love it, hopefully it will last. The colours are lovely. CPA were great to, great service, and very friendly people. Would highly recommend, a bit pricey, but if you want the look, you have to pay I guess. Well done.

Ordered 2 sample bags of Pine Play Nuggets and Softwood Play Grade Chip as couldn't decide which was best option. Both are good quality and sized pieces but decided Softwood Play Grade Chip would be best option for our play area and liked the fact they are a nice light colour and will brighten a shady area of the garden.

Very pleased with both the product and service. I purchased three value packs that contained individual bags instead of the bulk bags after reading the reviews and that was definitely the right choice - much easier to unload/move about especially since we were covering quite an expanse of play area.

Good service - ordering and delivery. Delivery man very friendly and helpful. Product looks good but has sharp edges and has caused scratches and bleeding just from falling over. Having been to a play area with pine chippings I would buy these in future or buy deluxe play bark but expensive.

Good service with ordering and delivery. Driver very friendly and helpful. The bark is chunky but has some sharp edges - just falling over has caused scratches and bleeding on my child's legs. Having recently been to a play area with pine chippings - I would buy these in future.

We saw these play bark chippings used in the local parks and we knew this is what we wanted. We ordered over the phone and the sales person was very helpful pointing us in the right direction, a very pleasant ordering experience. Product arrived yesterday, we ordered double 2 x bulk bags and in hindsight wish we had spent a little extra and got the midi pack as we had to barrow the contents of the bulk bags to where we needed it. The driver was very helpful and got it as close to the garden as he physically could. The product itself was exactly what we were looking for and we are very happy with our order. I will definitely order again next time. James
