Excellent top soil. The ladies in the office were first class and the delivery driver was so helpful and tipped the soil exactly where I wanted it even though it was very tight to get the tipper into my driveway a lot of shunting back and forth to turn it to get in position first class service highly recommended.

I was let down by several companies when overhauling my garden this year so when I came to arranging the new lawn I was very concerned in case I had another bad contractor but.. I have to say Andrew and the team did an amazing job of supplying and installing a huge amount of soil for my lawn and embankment as well as laying around 220 square meters of good quality lawn. On top of that he sorted my gravel out as well, amazing service, great friendly team, good fair prices and did exactly what he said he would do. Aftercare is also top notch. Thanks to all the team at South Wales Turf & Topsoil
