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.
BS8601:2013 specifies the requirements for the classification, composition and use of subsoils for creating soil profiles intended to support plant growth. We supply BS-compliant subsoils that are suitable for a range of landscape applications, including tree pits, planting beds, and grass lawns.
