Goods

We only sell to the UK. Our site is only intended for use by people resident in the United Kingdom. We are unable to accept orders from or deliver to individuals outside of the United Kingdom.

The description of the goods is as set out in the website or any other forms of advertisement.

The images of the products are for illustrative purposes only. Representations of colour online are as accurate as our photographic and electronic processes will allow. In addition to this, soil is a natural product and for this reason also we cannot guarantee that the appearance and/or colours of products shown on this site exactly reproduce the appearance and/or colours of the physical products themselves. Natural products may show some colour variations.

All sizes, weights and volumes quoted are supplied as a guide only and are approximate. We have made every effort to be as accurate as possible.

Basis of Sale (how the contract is formed between “us” the company and “you” the customer)

Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. It is your responsibility to provide us with correct details so please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process.

After you place an order, we will send you an e-mail to confirm that we have received it. This is an Order Acknowledgement but this does not mean that your order has been accepted by us.

Unless you cancel your order in accordance with our Cancellations, Returns and Refunds Policy or we have contacted you to advise that we are unable to accept your order (and in this event an explanation would be provided without delay) the contract is formed when you receive another e-mail from us confirming the order, this is an Order Confirmation.

By placing an order you agree to us giving you written confirmation of the contract by means of an e-mail with all the information in it.

You must ensure that the Order Confirmation is complete and accurate and inform us immediately of any errors.  We are not responsible for any inaccuracies in the order placed by you. You will receive the Order Confirmation within a reasonable time after placing the order but in any event not later than the delivery of the goods ordered and supplied under the Contract.

All quotations are valid for a maximum of 7 days from its date unless we expressly withdraw it (with explanation) at an earlier time.

We reserve the right to reject any order for any reason and no order will be accepted until payment is received in full for all products and any related delivery charges.

Price of Goods

The price of all products and charges including delivery of goods is that set out on the website at time and date of order or other such price as we may agree in writing.

All prices are shown in pounds sterling.

It is unlikely but always possible that despite our best efforts some of the products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products we will inform you as soon an possible and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling your order.

You can pay for Products ordered on our Website by debit or credit card.

We accept payment with Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Delta, Mastercard, Mastercard Debit and Maestro cards.

Payment for Products (including delivery charges) will be debited from your payment card at the time of placing your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted and, if for any reason, your order is not accepted or in the event we are unable to supply the Products you have ordered then a full refund will be issued.

All credit and debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for the order not being processed or delivered or being delayed.

Risk and Property

Risk of damage to, or loss of, the Goods will pass to you upon delivery. The Goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver them to the address you provided or you (or a carrier organised by you) collect them from us.

Ownership of the Goods shall pass to you when we have received payment in full. If full payment is overdue we can choose, by notice, to cancel any delivery and end any right to use the Goods still owned by you in which case you must return them or allow us to collect them.

If you intend to return or exchange the Goods in accordance with the Cancellation, Returns & Refund Policy, you must take reasonable care of the Goods pending their return to us.

Delivery of Goods

We can only deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver to non-UK destinations, including the Republic of Ireland and the Channel Islands.

For deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses and certain remote locations e.g. Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands, there may be an additional surcharge imposed by our couriers and a slightly longer delivery lead-time.

Deliveries of topsoil are made via a third party courier on pallets. Pallets will be unloaded as described in our Delivery Information and Charges page. We will use all reasonable endeavours to place the goods as close to your property as is deemed safe and feasible by the Carrier.

You must provide sufficient and safe access to the point of unloading as described in our Delivery Information and Charges page. We are able to deliver the Goods if you are not present but in these circumstances we can accept no liability for any deterioration in or theft of any of the items delivered. Neither can we accept responsibility for the consequences of the positioning of the pallets by the Carrier. It is preferable that you are available at the delivery address to accept the delivery.

The delivery charge for each item is listed on the product detail page. When you add products to your shopping basket and have chosen the delivery option the appropriate charge will be added automatically. All delivery charges will be shown clearly throughout the checkout process.

We cannot be held responsible if the delivery address provided by you is incorrect so we ask that you check all details carefully before submitting your order.

Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Goods to the delivery address given in the Order.

The Goods will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.

We will do our very best to ensure that delivery takes place within the time specified. However, you acknowledge that the time for delivery specified is an estimate and that we cannot control delays taking place once the Goods have been dispatched.

If we miss our estimated delivery deadline for the Goods or in the absence of any estimate being given the date 30 days after the Dispatch Confirmation, you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:

  • we have refused to deliver the Goods
  • you informed us before we accepted your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential

We shall have no liability for any delay in delivery of the Goods, or failure to deliver the Goods, where the delay or failure is caused either by an event outside our control or the Customer’s failure to provide us with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods. Where Goods cannot be delivered due to any of these circumstances and you ask for the Goods to be re-delivered we reserve the right to make an additional delivery charge at the applicable rate.

If we do not deliver the Goods within 24 hours of the agreed delivery date, unless non-delivery is due any of the above, you should Contact Us. You will then be given the option of:
