Flawless service, excellent products. I have used CPA regularly for some years now and highly recommend them. This latest delivery of maritime pine nuggets was no exception: the bark is beautifully sized, shaped, and coloured.

Superb quality! Real bark chippings, far better quality than anything I could purchase from my local garden centre. Fast delivery too.

Second time we have purchased from CPA and on both occasions the price, delivery and service were impeccable. We were somewhat worried about buying bulk items such as Pine Nuggets online but as the local suppliers didn’t have the products required so we took the plunge and ordered from CPA. I would have no hesitation in buying again nor in recommending CPA to others.

The product was exceptional quality and the delivery driver went above and beyond and took the 2000l bag to right beside where we were working. I'll never call another number again.

I never leave reviews but was really impressed with the quality of this product from the moment it was delivered. Even the driver (3rd party) commented on the quality. The bag was full to the brim and was dropped as close to my back gate as possible. Doesn't go a far as you think, might have to go back for another bag! Can't comment on how long it last, as cheaper bark you tend to get a season only. Tell you next year!

Ordered 2000L, perfect product and matches the images on the website. Although in this instance not used for a play area in my garden. The product is definitely suitable for play area if required

Chose CPA Horticulture as their website was the best/easiest to navigate with good photos of the product you were hoping to purchase. Products generally arrived on time (give or take a couple of hours - not the fault of CPA however and I am nit picking to be fair) and were of great quality. Needed to order another couple of tonnes and rather than the play bark arriving on the Monday, I'd kindly asked if it could be delivered on the Friday before as I already had the gardeners around working away so it saved me having to wheel barrow it all into the garden all by myself. Mr Toby Alridge was most obliging and arranged the deliver for the Friday rather than Monday which was a life saver! Would definitely use CPA again in future.

The product itself is great however delivery was not.. Delivery was not on the specified date and was unsuitable for a pallet, the jumbo bags burst as the driver unloaded and 4000 litres of bark were left blocking the top of our shared driveway. The bark itself though is perfect for my boys play area..

Excellent product far higher quality than garden centre offerings. Used on several paths in our garden where it lasts well over 12 months before needing topping up.
