The new site in Scrooby, Doncaster is intended to provide more convenient coverage for landscape projects in the South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire areas.

It was set up in partnership with Rotherham Sand and Gravel, an independent quarrying company with a large-scale bagging facility. This will enable Green-tree to supply bulk bags or small bags of topsoil as well as bulk deliveries.

Green-tree topsoil is an environmentally sustainable blend that is certified to BS3882:2015.  It is also friable and easy to work with, with good water-holding capacity, the company said.

Business manager Mark Wood said: "Green-tree topsoil is a rich and fertile topsoil that is manufactured using organic compost and selected natural sands. The natural fertility of Green-tree topsoil guarantees quick establishment of trees, plants and turf and no additional fertiliser products are required for the first season.  We are budgeting to shift 10,000 tonnes of topsoil in the first year."
