BS8601 Subsoil

Subsoil is an essential component of most soil profiles. It provides storage of moisture, transmits rainfall to deeper layers and provides anchorage for trees and larger shrubs. It plays an important role in reducing the amount and speed of surface water runoff, reduces the risk of erosion and flooding, and is an integral part of sustainable drainage systems.

Request Certification

BS8601:2013 specifies the requirements for the classification, composition and use of subsoils for creating soil profiles intended to support plant growth. Our stocks of BS8601 are fully certified.  That means you get the service, efficiency and quality guarantee you expect from MCM – with the added assurance of British Standard certification.  Ensure healthy plant establishment and growth from tree pit to border, lawn and planting bed.
