What is PAS 100 Compost?
Publicly Available Specification is a widely recognised compost quality standard within the organics recycling sector.
To ensure a high standard of compost, PAS is set by the British Standards Institution which requires producers to establish a top-quality production policy.
This product status is given in recognition of non-hazardous waste that contains biodegradable materials only, making it safe to use in both domestic and commercial settings.
What does BS3882 mean?
The British Standard 3882 certification for topsoil has been laid out to ensure a consistently high-performance grade; a standard set out by the British Standards Institute. This standard is the revised version of 1994 originally set out.
BS3882 is measured on three factors: Soil Structure and Classification, Free-from Contamination and Fertility. BS3882 topsoil suppliers are also able to supply results of the soil analysis which includes the origin of the soil, the contamination parameters and written confirmation that the soil complies with the standard BS3882:2007.
All of the Stone Zone & Landscaping Centre's soil contains BS3882 Soil for multi-purpose use, a great option for all gardening and landscaping applications.
This product can be purchased in bulk bags which contain approximately 850kg.

What is Screened Soil?
All the Soils that we sell directly from Stone Zone & Landscaping Centre are screened to different grades. Screening the soil is a very important process as it essentially separates larger pieces of debris from the soil. When you're using soil as a planting medium, the last thing you want is to constantly find stones and sticks on your soil, so this process saves you a lot of time prepping the soil!
Commonly known as a 'Scalping Screen,' this piece of machinery works like a large sieve for recycled soils. The soil will go through a conveyor belt which has holes graded to different sizes. For this soil, the holes are only 10mm, meaning that anything that measures more than 10mm should be separated from the soil, leaving mainly pure soil that then gets bagged up.
