Featured Products:

Wessex® Coolfresh Turf

Our flagship Wessex ‘Coolfresh’ Turf is featured in award-winning gardens at The Chelsea Flower Show and can be seen at many high-profile attractions such as The Tower of London, The Natural History Museum and Kew Gardens. Our turf is grown on fertile soils, using seeds selected from the Sports Turf Research Institute’s list of highly-rated cultivars. Our Wessex turf is non-netted and cultivated at around 15 months old, meaning it’s well-established when laid. Our unique ‘Coolfresh’ system involves the turf going through a unique chilling process during the delivery, ensuring the turf rolls are kept cool throughout to maintain optimum freshness.

Wessex® BS3882 10mm Soil

Our Wessex 10mm is a 70/30 blend of high quality local British Standard topsoil and PAS 100 green compost. Our Wessex 10mm soil is tested in accordance to a BS3882: 2015 – A copy of our test analysis is available on request. The PH for this is between 7.5-8.5 and is not treated with any additives.  Particle sizes run from a 10mm down and is suitable for general landscaping uses including turf laying and seeding.  If you need any advice or you need a soil to meet a certain specification please call the office and we will be pleased to advise you on this and discuss samples.

Wessex® Dutch Tree Sand

Often referred to as ‘Amsterdam Tree Sand’ our Wessex Dutch Tree Sand is blended from selected local graded silica sands and organic compost, which allows tree pits to remain free draining, whilst being able to maintain heavy footfall and vehicle movements without compacting. This material has been used in many large projects locally including the prestige Poundbury development in Dorchester, Dorset. Our Dutch sand is screened to 10mm with a typical PH of 8- 8.5; please call the office to discuss or request a sample.

Bunker Sand
