Best place to get Topsoil (High Wycombe)

Posted: 06/05/2013 at 20:31

I need to get some topsoil to level out our lawn for returfing, Its 10mx3.5m in size, from a caculator I found it looks like I would need at least 2 large bulk bags, if not more. Where is the best place to get it from? the prices seem to vary so much online. Am I better of with bags of a lorry load? I will also need some to fil in raised beds.

How much would you expect to pay for it? I live in High Wycombe, South Bucks if that helps


Thanks very much

We are currently sorting our our garden ready to put in a new border and lay lawn. It is currently full of stones, all the soil, borders etc are full of them. Do I need to get rid of them all?

Hi cazzieb, the link was just to show what I meant I can get them much cheaper from timberstore near me and they can cut them to my required size

Also can we move it now, or is it too late for this season?
