George Davies Turf sources one of the best Raised Bed Mix products in the Country, we have it screened to 10 mm, bagged and delivered to our yards in Olney and St Albans for distribution. Our Logo shows “you’re in safe hands”, because you certainly are. Our parent company has spent the last 20 years sourcing and distributing these products under its own name and as such has sold in excess of 40,000 tonnes in that time.
The Raised Bed Mix is sourced in Lincolnshire, where the land has previously been growing crops and vegetables. The reason why we can source such fertile, free draining and premium soil is that sites in question have been earmarked for future development. The soil undergoes a series of rigorous tests to make sure the PH, the fertility and the textural classification is fit for purpose.
The very sandy free draining and workable soil combined with a PAS 100 recycled green waste compost makes the ideal growing medium for a raised bed. The compost material gives the soil a higher organic matter content and also adds a larger quantity of Phosphate and Potassium which is essential for root development.
Any supplier can source and deliver soil in a bag, but doing it consistently week in week out throughout the year whilst keeping the product dry and ready for use is the area we excel at. There is nothing more frustrating than having a large bag of wet soil that is impossible to work with so when we say “you’re in safe hands” we really mean it.
With George Davies Turf, the product is only half the story, we feel the delivery of that product is just as important. Using our knowledge, we believe we have the formula that makes for an experience where you feel looked after from the moment you enquire about our products, through to taking delivery and beyond that with our aftercare service. We treat every job as if it is our own project and we want to help you as much as possible, giving you a nominated dispatch day and a time slot for your delivery.
We also deliver our products with lorry mounted forklift trucks, this way we are able to place the bags exactly (within reason) where you want them to be. This means gravel drives, long narrow tracks and putting the bags around the back of the house is not a problem. The only limitation is the width of the track, the forklift trucks are 2.6 metres wide and weigh two and a half tonnes empty. They are all terrain trucks and will go nearly anywhere (subject to customer agreement). High fences unfortunately cause a few problems as we can’t lift over them.
We specialise in raised beds, and what better service than having a bag of raised bed soil split over your nice new raised beds so the soil flows directly into where you need it to be without you lifting a finger. As long as there is sufficient access.
