Our Eco Value BS3882 Topsoil is a high quality manufactured sandy loam topsoil. Rich in organic matter and well stocked with all major plant nutrients.
This product is fertile, free draining and fully compliant in all aspects of the British Standard BS3882:2015 Multipurpose topsoil specifications and requirements.
Ideally suited to landscaping projects when a fertile, consistent and 'clean' planting medium is required either in the back yard or a new build construction site.
We use quarried materials that would otherwise be unsuitable for the construction industry and give them a purpose and value thus diverting them away from landfill and utilising the natural resources available to us.
We use PAS100 certified green compost in our soil blends because it is a fully sustainable, quality compost which is good for the environment and recycling economy.
By having direct access to the manufacturing process we are able to keep costs to an absolute minimum and provide a high quality material at a budget friendly economy price.

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:
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.
