Gardeners often need to buy soil when creating a new garden or laying a lawn. Alternatively, you may want to buy garden soil because your own soil is low on nutrients and needs a boost. Our popular Black Fen Soil is suitable for adding organic matter to impoverished soils and lowering PH, ideal to use as a surface for laying turf or lawn seed. It also provides a good background colour for all planting schemes. We also stock brown soil and a soil-sand mix, as well as soils which already have conditioners added. Our Blended Loam soil is a screened loam combined with conditioners, while our own recipe Denise’s Delight is a nurturing mix of fen soil, composted horse manure and wood shavings, ideal for raised beds and growing vegetables.
If you need a soil delivery in the Cambridge area, we can supply you with bags of topsoil or loose loads, as required. As experienced topsoil suppliers, we can also advise you on which products are best suited for your needs.
If the existing soil in your garden has deteriorated and its nutrient content is depleted, you may want to buy topsoil to restore the quality. A soil delivery could equally be the answer if you are laying a lawn or planting vegetable beds, where you will need a quality soil to feed your crop. Many Cambridge gardeners also buy garden soil when planting borders or raised beds, as well as for planters on the patio or hanging baskets, where, again, a rich soil will be needed.
Different types of soil work well in different contexts. For instance, a nourishing peat-based topsoil will be good for vegetables, soft fruits, herbs and salad crops, and you may also want to consider using a mix of soil and soil conditioners in this type of area. You can also mix compost and soil together when building a raised bed. Our Denise’s Delight is especially suitable for raised beds, where it will feed the soil and conserve moisture. However, a blended loam is likely to be better for landscaping purposes, while a heavier brown soil is ideal where larger amounts are needed for garden infill, for instance as part of a redesign.
