Dandys Lawnmix Topsoil is one of our oldest blends and it has been created specifically for sowing grass seed and laying turf!
• for turfing or seeding
• for filling holes
• for raising levels
• screened to 12mm sandy loam topsoil
WHAT IS IN IT? Pretty much just our screened to 10mm topsoil. Depending on the particular batch we might mix in a bit of compost or gritty sand just to make sure the end result has the right balance of nutrients and drainage capabilities for getting your grass green and lush.
WHAT IS IT FOR?Lawnmix is a mix for, well, lawns obviously! We make sure it has all the right nutrients, minerals and drainage capability to get your new lawn off to a flying start. This blend goes really well with our Platinum Turf or Platinum Grass Seed if you are after a lush, green lawn in your front or back yard. Check out our "how to lay a new lawn" guide if you want some pointers on how to do it yourself!
HOW MUCH DO I NEED?As a rule of thumb 1000kg of topsoil will usually cover about 15m2; (15m x 1m) at a depth of about 5cm; still not sure? Use our handyproduct calculator.
DON'T FORGET...Your anti-weed membrane!We only like natural products and of course, all of our topsoil and compost blends are rich in organic matter, very fertile and jammed full of minerals and nutrients - as much as your carrots and rose bushes love our growing mixes, so will the dreaded weeds! Every blend is screened to at least 12mm which will take care of any big weeds, but it just isn't possible to catch every last weed seed without using chemicals - which we really don't like - so at some point you may get a less than desirable bit of greenery showing up in your borders or lawn - such is life! Lay some membrane on top of your soil, or a gravel or bark to act as a weed suppressant - if you really don't fancy grappling with weeds then take a look at our premium blend of Sterilised Topsoil.You can read more about dealing with weeds here!
If you order a STANDARD sized bulk bag of this product you qualify for our mix and match add-on items! You can add on gardening gloves, rakes and tools, small bags of gravel, topsoil, compost - all sorts of great stuff at super low prices!
After scarifying and verticutting a tired lawn, the lawnmix topsoil was used for top-dressing (and then overseeding). Very easy to spread, nice and fine, and new seeds germinated quickly. Just 8 weeks later and my lawn is transformed! I will be using this topsoil again to top-dress the lawn once more in the autumn. Great product, and a great delivery service.
The website was easy to use and the very important delivery onto the property was very clear.
The delivered soil is very good and it arrived well within the stated time of delivery.
My delivery driver was a very friendly helpful man who placed the bulk bags exactly where I wanted them despite an upward slope up my drive using only a pallet lift trolley which he had to push and pull. He could have left it by the entrance but didn't.
Overall a good experience and I would definitely use them again.

Topsoil was of excellent quality. Delivery efficient and speedy. As a pensioner I found this service superior to loading small bags from the garden centre. I would recommend this service to any gardener as it all progressed very smoothly.
I was concerned about delivery of the order as the property is situated on the top of a hill. I spoke to a very helpful person and together we checked out the address on google maps. He said that he would request a smaller (7 tonne) lorry for the delivery and there wouldn't be a problem.
I asked specifically for the order to be delivered between 8.00 and 10.15 but this didn't happen. I received a call to say the delivery company were having issues and they would deliver by 2.00pm. It eventually arrived at 2.30pm.
The downside was that an articulated lorry arrived (but still managed to reverse down the track behind the property); the upside was that you did not charge the extra fee for a specific time delivery, so thanks for that.
It transpired that someone was at the house all day so the delivery issue was just an inconvenience.
I would add that I was extremely pleased with the quality of the top soil delivered.
