Our topsoil for borders is a fine, friable blend of 40% sandy soil and 60% organic compost. This high quality mix offers excellent water drainage, preventing the pooling and puddling that encourages disease and rots plant roots. Free-draining soil also lessens the risk of surface run-off, reduces soil erosion and helps prevent plant roots from being exposed to the elements. However, the added peat-free compost does allow our beds and borders topsoil to retain sufficient water to support plant vigorous growth, and when added to existing soil can help neutralise pH levels. Flowerbeds, borders and vegetable patches will typically thrive in these conditions, so this is an ideal medium to add to existing soil that would benefit from improvement to its structure and the addition of nutrient-rich organic matter.

Top tip: Always remember to lay a weed membrane prior to adding border soil, as this will be effective in preventing UV light from reaching the growing medium and will suppress the growth of weeds.

Key features:
  • Optimal mix of 60% organic compost and 40% sandy soil.

What a surprise, not only before time,also the way how bags was unloaded on my driveway spot on,exactly where we wanted . Last think quality of the soil 5*.No stones or glasses.

Top quality border soil and compost mix

Good advice on the soil; I explained what I needed which was half compost and half soil, they offered to premix it. The quality is excellent, as is the price, delivery was fast (next day), I needed extra and they delivered an extra 2 tonnes about 3 hours later the same day!

This is the second lot of topsoil I have ordered from Greenvale and I have been very satisfied with both the quality and the service. Darren again stacked the bags to make borrowing them down the garden easier. Would strongly recommend.

Good quality top soil

I ordered 2 tonne bags of top soil to fill a couple of raised beds in the garden. Looks good quality, 60% compost. Ideal for growing veg or any othe plants. It was reasonably priced, and quick delivery. The driver was professional and polite. I would recommend this company.

Sean Dooley - Padiham

Excellent tilth for the beds

Allison - Rochdale

Good quality soil

This is nice soil and has very few stones or woody bits that can be a problem with other soils I've bought from elsewhere. I dug it into my flowerbeds this spring and my garden is genuinely thriving now despite strange weather earlier in the year.
