Ordered online and chose individual bags for ease as I had to carry through house to top of garden. Arrived on the date I requested with friendliest delivery driver ever. He split the pallet with us and we all unloaded to the pavement. Bark chippings look fantastic and really good quality - very happy with product and customer service.

Great service, easy to order online. Delivery was quick and arrived on the stipulated date. 30 x 70L bags are so much easier to move to rear garden than hippo bags. The quality of the play grade chips are fantastic - nice colour and perfect sized chips. They have compressed down into a really nice path surrounding some raised vegetable beds. The price was great and the online calculator was exact. CPA are a nice company to use with good communication.

Quick and easy to order + one of only a few places which give the proper data sheets for the wood chip. Order was confirmed, delivery date was confirmed, delivery driver called ahead and turned up on the specified day, product was good quality... couldn’t ask for more!

A first class product at a price that after a lot of searching was by far the lowest (and for a better product). Customer service was excellent and helped me decide which product to go for. Delivery was very prompt so all in all a perfect transaction, thank you CPA.

This my second purches and very satisfied. First time i was bark chipings this time on the advice of my gardner wood chippings. I buy a full pallet as this works out best value. In both case attractive single size chips with no "rubbishy" bits

Very pleased with the hardwood chips - ordered 80 large bags delivered on two pallets. Driver was really helpful and went the extra mile to get the pallets as close to my back garden as possible in a tricky space. Woodchips also look great in a large kids play area, nice colour and don't smell like bark does, volume guide on website helpful too, I had plenty.

Very pleased with the delivery of Hardwood chippings for the kid's play area. The 70 litre bags are easy to handle and not too heavy - and much more easier than trying to decant chippings from a bulk builders bag. The quality of the product was good and consistent. The result is a good even covering of chippings - looks great. The calculator is a must to make sure you buy the right amount.

Third time ordering this product. Has lasted so well and stays looking good that we use it all over our garden and beds. Nice to walk on, good for the kids and cats, provides an amazing habitat for invertebrates, stops the weeds, absorbs the rain, stops us needing to water so much, looks great, lasts ages, doesn’t blow away like bark. What isn’t to like?

I bought the hard wood chippings to place under our laurel hedge. This is alongside the drive area on one side and a newly re-turfed lawn on the other side. In both cases there is an edging and so the chippings are contained. The end result looks excellent and hopefully will suppress the growth of weeds under the laurels. The ordering process was very straightforward and the delivery was on the designated day and the driver placed the palette of sacks where I required. All in all this was an excellent service and I would certainly not hesitate to order again from this company.

Excellent product, this the second time I’ve bought this wood chip for my chickens from CPA and have been very happy with the product and service. Being in bags makes it much easier to move to the back garden, and Palletways courier service, have been happy to take the pallet of bags down a long drive to where I wanted them on each occasion. Will buy again from CPA

Delighted. Used as a mulch in garden and also in the chicken run. Purchased 40x70l bags which are easy enough to move and spread, excellent quality.and consistent through all the bags. Delivery via Palletways was excellent as always though maybe offering the book in option could be considered. I would buy from CPA Horticulture again. Delivery is of course on a pallet which has to be disposed of, seems such a waste to cut up and take to the dump.

This is the third year I've used CPA Horticulture for Hardwood woodchips and each year the process has been so easy and hassle free. The wood chips are excellent quality and make a huge difference to our chickens who seem so much happier when standing on a mountain of fresh woodchip than in the recreation of the Somme which the garden looked like before.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
