Ensuring you have high quality topsoil is essential to provide early establishment and development of turf, seed, trees, shrubs, vegetables and plants. It is the foundation of healthy landscaping, and as such, it is essential to know the composition and source.

Produced from a blend of natural topsoil recycled from prime arable land and soil conditioners that provide added levels of organic matter, our topsoils are readily broken down, extremely spreadable and easy to work with, even when wet, whilst retaining moisture naturally. Whether you are planting, laying turf, vegetable gardening, landscaping or constructing raised beds, Bedford Timber Supplies can supply a topsoil suitable for your application.

Our topsoils are supplied and delivered in convenient bulk bags, which help to keep the work area tidy and reduce wastage that wind and rain can cause. Our topsoils are available for a variety of uses such as turfing, planting and landscaping. Blended loam mixes can be supplied.
