Default Where to get topsoil in Reading, Berkshire?


Hello,

My garden needs building up a bit.

Could anyone advise me on where to get some decent soil,
to be delivered to a Reading address? The last time I had
a delivery of topsoil, it was full of junk, so I'm really
looking for a recommendation of a good supplier this time.

Er, any idea what it costs?


Thanks!

about 2 years ago i got about 21 tonne of top soil from Walkers on the Hyde
End Road Reading. i payed about 140 +VAT and the soil was good quality. no
rubbish and certainly very few stones. the lawn is growing happily on it at
the moment.
