Declaration of Compliance BS3882:2007

Soil source:

This declaration confirms that the topsoil represented by the attached Topsoil Analysis Report conforms to the requirements of the British Standard for Topsoil (BS3882:2007).

The sample was sampled and tested in accordance with the requirements of BS3882:2007

Samples are taken for analysis every 8000 tonnes (5000 m3) of product
Samples are taken from all TOPSOIL products ready for despatch
Topsoil is sampled after screening
Analysis certificates are retained for a period of 5 years
Laboratory analysis is undertaken at a UKAS and MCERTS accredited laboratory
All laboratory methods are in accordance with BS3882:2007

Sample Examination

The soil was described as a dark brown, dry, friable SANDY LOAM with a moderately developed fine to coarse Organic granular structure. The sample was stone free and no deleterious materials, roots or rhizomes of pernicious weeds were observed.

Analytical Schedule

The sample was submitted to a UKAS and MCERTS accredited laboratory for a range of physical and chemical tests to confirm the composition and fertility of the soil, and the absence of potential contaminants. The following parameters were determined:

Particle Size Analysis and Stone Content

pH value 6.5-7.5
major plant nutrients (N, P, K, Mg);
organic matter content 40%
sandy soil content 60%
zinc 110
copper 36
nickel 20

The results are presented on the attached Certificate of Analysis and an interpretation of the results is given below. The interpretation considers the use of the for general landscaping purposes and its compliance/non-compliance with our general landscape specification.

In the absence of site-specific criteria, the concentrations of the potential contaminants determined have been assessed with reference to the Soil Guideline Values (SGVs) for residential end-use with plant uptake, which are presented in the Contaminated Land Exposure Assessment (CLEA) Model (EA/DEFRA:2002). The SGVs currently consider a limited range of parameters so where a potential contaminant is not covered by the CLEA Model other relevant schedules and guidelines for contamination assessment have been used, for example the New Dutch List, as well as professional judgement.

Results of Analysis

The sample fell into the sandy loam texture class. This particle size distribution is considered suitable for general landscaping purposes, including tree and shrub planting, native transplants, amenity grass turfing and seeding and dressing.The sample was stone free and, as such, stones will not restrict the use of the soil for any landscaping purposes.

I have purchased soil from you before so came back to you for another 2 tonnes. I was very pleased with it last time and I am again. I shall be purchasing another 2 tonnes soon as we haven’t yet finished our gardening project. It is lovely soil. Thank you.

I ordered 3 large bags of topsoil on Thursday and it was delivered the next day as requested. The soil was excellent quality and value for money, the online ordering was quick and simple and I received a follow up call to confirm the delivery date and confirmation of where I asked for the soil to be dropped off. Overall great service and price.

Singletons always have something special and out of the ordinary. I’ve shopped for gifts and Christmas decor and I always seem to find just what I’m looking for. Well worth a visit.
