Grade A Topsoil

The topsoil we sell is general purpose grade A. This type of topsoil can be bought in different screen sizes dependent on the project at hand, with more course grades useful for laying turf and finer grades for top dressing lawns. This type of topsoil is also useful for making new beds and borders as well an making excellent base for the sowing of new lawns.


Screened topsoil has had roots, twigs and pebbles removed by a process where the soil is run through mesh to filter it.

This gives the soil a finer and more superior consistency allowing more room so that roots can sprout easier.


Our soil is certified to BS3882: 2015 standard.

It has been tested for heavy metals and has been certified for the use of new build properties and developments.

Further tests are available on request.

Soil Calculator

Our online topsoil calculator will help you calculate how many tonnes of topsoil you require for your new lawn, raised flower bed or any other groundwork project.

Topsoil is usually sold in metric tonnes but first we must calculate the volume of topsoil required in cubic metres and convert this value into metric tonnes.

Volume of topsoil is calculated using length (m) x width (m) x depth (m). The next stage is to convert this volume into metric tonnes. We base our calculations on 1 cubic metre = 1.8 metric tonnes. Therefore we multiply the volume x 1.8 to give us the tonnage of topsoil required.

  1. Choose the area unit of measurement, you can select from metres, feet or yards.
  2. Enter the length and width of the area you wish to topsoil.
  3. Choose the depth unit of measurement, you can select from centimetres or inches.
  4. Enter the depth of topsoil you wish to have.
  5. Click on the ‘Calculate’ button and you will see the volume of the area, in m³, and the tonnage of topsoil you require.
