Top soil needed

I am after some advice please, I have renewed the drainage in my garden with a new soakaway. I have been advised to add some better topsoil throughout the back garden. It looks like i need approx 7 tonnes of soil. 

Where is best place to get a quality top-soil at a good price??

Any help would be appreciated.!!

    A local landscaper is your best bet, one that supplies turf, chippings, bark etc.. We have a local one.  It is expensive to ship over long distances so find someone close who stocks it. There are regional suppliers - google 'topsoil'.

    I have purchased top soil for husbands which is based in the north east.

    The more you order the cheaper it is.

    first ton was about £40.00 but I got ten ton for about £80.00.
