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:

  • Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012

Of the potential contaminates identified using the above guidance none of the results exceeded the guideline values.

I found this very good for putting in my polytunnel for growing my vegetables and flowers, I have used some in my garden as well and am impressed with how well the soil has been graded to get rid of stones. There are a few little bits of twigs and little splinters of stones but all in all very good product and will buy More of the same.

Fabulous! Fine, no sticks / lumps/etc. Very pourable. Much better quality than the “multipurpose compost” supposedly fit for potting and seeds I bought from a garden centre that had sticks in it!) Never again will i go to a garden centre and buy a bag! I simply mixed / topped with mushroom compost, Lush. This is great. Big bag delivered by a cheerful helpful driver without problem. Ace communications with company. Cannot recommend too highly

Simply the best topsoil I have ever had delivered. Tried CPA for the first time and ordered 2 builder bags for a new project. The delivery was on time and the driver couldnt be more helpful. But it was the quality of the soil that impressed. Zero stones or any other detritus, just top quality top soil. A part of Wales will forever be in Chippenham! Thanks CPA.

Ordered the second batch as I liked the product from the first order. This bulk had some rough part mixed with twigs (40mm)& small stones (10mm), clearly different from the rest of the finer soil. Looked like I got a part which wasn't mixed/grinder(?) enough. Used them for a less delicate part of my garden. The delivery didn't come on the day I specified so I had to contact the company to check what was happening. Hope no more of these problems because I still think this is a good value for money.
