Ultimate Topsoil sources one of the best Horticultural Loam products in the Country, we have it screened to 10 mm, bagged and delivered to our yards in Olney and St Albans for distribution. Our Logo shows “you’re in safe hands”, because you certainly are. Our parent company has spent the last 20 years sourcing and distributing these products under its own name and as such has sold in excess of 40,000 tonnes in that time. 

The Horticultural Loam is sourced in Norfolk, over the last 20 years our supplier has made real strides in the quality of the products they offer, and can now boast to have been chosen as the base planting medium for the new Global Vegetable Garden at the RHS Garden Hyde Hall in Chelmsford, Essex. 

The Horticultural Loam contains coarse sand and additional reserves of organic matter in the form of BSI PAS 100 & CQP compliant ‘green’ compost, giving it a more open and free-draining structure. The soil undergoes a series of rigorous tests to make sure the PH, the fertility and the textural classification is fit for purpose. Its coarse texture is ideal for vegetable planting schemes of this kind and provides the optimum environment for establishing young plants and encouraging healthy root growth.

Any supplier can source and deliver soil in a bag, but doing it consistently week in week out throughout the year whilst keeping the product dry and ready for use is the area we excel at. There is nothing more frustrating than having a large bag of wet soil that is impossible to work with so when we say “you’re in safe hands” we really mean it.

With Ultimate Topsoil, the product is only half the story, we feel the delivery of that product is just as important. Using our knowledge, we believe we have the formula that makes for an experience where you feel looked after from the moment you enquire about our products, through to taking delivery and beyond that with our aftercare service. We treat every job as if it is our own project and we want to help you as much as possible, giving you a nominated dispatch day and a time slot for your delivery.

We also deliver our products with lorry mounted forklift trucks, this way we are able to place the bags exactly (within reason) where you want them to be. This means gravel drives, long narrow tracks and putting the bags around the back of the house is not a problem. The only limitation is the width of the track, the forklift trucks are 2.6 metres wide and weigh two and a half tonnes empty.  They are all terrain trucks and will go nearly anywhere (subject to customer agreement). High fences unfortunately cause a few problems as we can’t lift over them. 

We as a company endeavour to try and make your life as easy as possible, and if you would like the bags to be split, so the top soil is left in a pile or dotted around a certain area we will accommodate all we can as long as access is good, and you have a sharp knife.
