Excellent service from order to delivery. The delivery driver was extremely helpful and went out of his way to deliver the very large 2000L sack where we wanted it. Would highly recommend.

Bought a couple of the value packs of the hardwood play chippings, delivery was exactly when requested with updates prior. Delivery driver arrived with two LARGE pallets stacked high with the 40l bags, which made them almost impossible for him to manoeuvre given there weight. It shouldn't have been a difficult drop for him, but it took a while and he was on his own. Maybe smaller pallets or less bags per pallet would be better (or a flatbed and grab?) Products fantastic, looks even better than expected when laid and a very accurate representation from the picture above. Early days but hopefully hard wearing and doesn't break down too quickly.

I decided to cover my back garden with these chips for my chickens (You don't simultaneously have chickens 'and' grass!). They can scratch them all over the place to their delight and a light raking put them right back. Great product, great ordering experience both on the phone or online and delivery was hassle free. Thank you.

It was quite clear to me having read the reviews that cpa-horticultural are a most professional Company. I had no doubts that the hardwood play clippings would be ideal for my needs. CPA did not disappoint. My very large bag (2000 litres) arrived on time and was delivered by a very thoughtful driver. I have no hesitation in recommending CPA and will be using their services again.

Excellent product, packaged extremely well with no damaged bags and delivered promptly by the courier. The bark is for a play area I am constructing in our garden and it works fantastically well to soften the ground around play equipment and a trampoline and looks great.

Really pleased with the product. Good quality and colour. The driver was very helpful and managed to manoeuvre the pallet close to where the wood chip was needed. Would certainly recommend and would definitely order again.

Excellent. I would like to point out in particular the Gregory delivery and the driver of the van (WG66 AAF) who went the extra mile to position the pallets to enable me to store the woodchip bags under cover. Please also pass on my thanks to him and Gregorys.

When you order a ton bag from CPA Horticulture, that's what you get. The bag was very well packed (several inches over the top of the bag) and the chippings are of a very good quality. Two very happy chickens, and 4 very happy rabbits ......... and oh! One very happy customer who will be back.

Absolutely fantastic service and product. Delivery arrived on day promised. I was out but delivery driver kindly put pallet load near the back gate which saved a huge amount of effort by me hauling the bags up to the back of the garden. Previous companies have just dumped it at the front of the drive. The product is good quality and has uplifted a tired area around raised beds. Very impressed and will definitely use this company again.

Chippings were great, bought them for the chickens as they are housebound and covered the muddy ground perfectly. Looks great and the chooks are loving it. Had a bit if trouble with delivery but CPA chased them up and got me a delivery time slot.

Arrived as planned. Very handy for us having individual sacks on a pallet as we live down a footpath with no road access so the delivery was left on the main road and we could go back and forth with wheelbarrow. The chip itself we're very happy with. It's a nice size, has a lovely almost gingery colour to it and has really brightened and smartened up our gardens.

good wood chips, easy ordering process, and the person who actually delivered the wood chips was amazing - his lorry was too large for the road so he moved the whole pallet load to our garden on his own - first we knew of it was a ring at the door. That man deserves a medal!

The only negative thing is that some of the bags were with holes in them and some of the chips fell out of the bags. Otherwise the order arrived and was put where we requested. The chips seem fine and as advertised.

We've put this chip on a large area of border around trees and vegetable plots. Really happy with it. Nice big chunks, clean, consistent colour, and no splinters. The kids can happily walk on it barefoot, and it should last a good few years. Delivery was on time and they were happy to place the palette where I asked. I'd recommend laying weed control fabric underneath it to keep it tidy with minimal work.

Our hardwood play grade chips arrived on the day selected. Although the vehicle was larger than the 7.5 tonne lorry selected during order, the driver was obliging and we pulled the pallet up our cul-de-sac on his pump-truck. The product itself is as described and good quality, with very little dust / fines and no splinter-like pieces of note. I found having the product in 70l bags so much better than in one bulk bag - much easier if placing in a raised area of your garden. We chose CPA because their price was the best we could find and we would definitely use them again, but would hope the 7.5 tonne lorry is used next time.

I wanted to create a play area for my daughter and minded children that I knew.would be hard wearing and cover recommended fall heights etc. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the product and the delivery on a chosen day, phone call half an hour before arrival and the delivery driver was so helpful it made the whole thing straight forward!

Received a phone call to book in the delivery, goods delivered on time. I choose the hardwood chipping for a path the quality and regularity of chip size was good but the colour was lighter than expected "let's hope it darkens with age as it stands out a bit"

I order Wood Chip every Year for our large play area and have never used CPA before. In the past, I have always had it delivered in Massive Jumbo Bags and had to transport it all the way to the play area in Wheel Barrow loads that took hours! CPA delivered 2800l to me in 70l Bags and between me and the Boys, we had it laid out on the play area ready for opening within 15 minutes.. Quality was fantastic and although I have slightly under ordered, I will definitely be using CPA going forward.

Excellent service and delivery (as always), this does the job for the hen run, lasts for over a year...and that's only because it gets scratched sound so much. Very attractive colour when first put down, has flecks of red in (cedar?) sadly the hens will make sure it turns a muddy brown in no time. Thanks again CPA- horticulture, will def be ordering again.
