Forum home Garden design


I have just created a raised garden bed for shrubs, flowers etc and need to add a couple of bulk bags of topsoil to our existing clay soil.  Any ideas where I can get it from as I am getting very confused searching online as it is difficult to know which supplier you can trust!?  I live in Gloucestershire.  Your help would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

    Gumtree? Check if anyone local is selling some and you can go along and look. There'll big bigger suppliers on there too.

    Wherever you source it, make sure you are at home and check the actual quality of the soil before they off load it.  When I was having my garden done the landscaper sent the first lorry load straight back after quite a heated conversation with the supplier.  2nd delivery was genuinely top quality.
