Are your bulk bags 1 tonne or 1 cubic metre?

Our chipped barks and composts are sold by volume as the products have a low density. Therefore a bag is 0.7 of a cubic metre. However the bags of aggregates and soils are the same volume but weigh approximately 1 tonne.


Can I choose a date for delivery?

During checkout, there is an option to choose a preferred date of delivery.  Whilst we try to work with you on these dates, they are not guaranteed. If we cannot get to you on your preferred date, we will always contact you to arrange an alternative date.


I've just placed a click and collect order, can I collect today?

As turf is a natural living product, we cut it to order.  We cut a small number of spares for people to take away one or two rolls but we don't have larger numbers to prevent wastage. To avoid a wasted journey, it is always best to check with the sales team on 01935 850388 


Do you have physical showroom?  

Yes we have a show room with a large selection of tools, machinery, seed, fertilisers and much more.  We can be found at the Lawn & Landscape Centre, Marston Road, Sherborne, Dorset. DT9 4SX
