Aggregate Suppliers in Broadstairs | Screened or Unscreened Topsoil?


Are you looking for aggregate suppliers in Broadstairs or the surrounding Kent areas? At Shaw Haulage, we can deliver quality aggregates to suit the exact requirements of your landscaping or land restoration projects. Whether you’re enhancing your garden with new plants and flowers or carrying out groundworks for a construction project, we supply unscreened and screened topsoil at unbeatable prices.


The grab hire team at Shaw Haulage manages aggregate deliveries and waste disposals for muckaway jobs at residential and commercial premises. This allows you to get rid of excess spoil and complete work using products best suited to your project.

If you’re unsure on which topsoil to choose, we’re here to help you with some expert advice based on years of industry experience.

Unscreened vs. Screened Topsoil


Whether in Broadstairs or any of the neighbouring areas, you can rely on our reputable topsoil and aggregate suppliers to provide premium-quality materials from our local recycling centre in Sittingbourne.


Grab hire and muckaway companies like us supply topsoil in two different categories. You can choose between unscreened and screened soil, depending on the specifics of your landscaping or land restoration project.


Unscreened Topsoil


We source unscreened topsoil from excavations and muckaway jobs at other properties in Broadstairs and throughout Kent. Unscreened topsoil is likely to contain garden debris because it doesn’t undergo any processing. Soil with debris – such as rocks, stones, roots and weeds – are better suited for general groundworks and aspects of land restoration rather than growing flowers and vegetables.


The main reasons for using unscreened topsoil are:


  • Creating a foundation for garden projects
  • Filling in excavation holes
  • Producing level surfaces
  • Building raised flower beds


Screened Topsoil


We screen the spoil from grab hire and muckaway jobs in Broadstairs at a nearby recycling centre. Here, experts remove debris and soil clumps to improve the quality of topsoil. This makes it finer and breathable, attributes that encourage root growth. The screening process also eliminates detritus which could prove harmful to flowers and plants.


Aggregate suppliers recommend screened topsoil for the following reasons:


  • The loose, aerated nature offers optimal drainage capabilities
  • It is suited to laying new turf and seeding new lawns
  • The finer soil particles prevent roots from rotting
  • Inherent nutrients allow for healthy plant and flower growth


Our Recommendations


As part of a dedicated service, our grab hire experts and aggregate suppliers can help you pick the ideal solution for your project. During a one-to-one consultation, we recommend how suitable unscreened or screened soil is for your individual needs.

Commercial groundworks and land restoration are likely to require unscreened materials. Domestic landscaping work, however, needs screened soil to achieve high-performance results for growing plants, flowers or vegetables.


Don’t hesitate to contact our team to deliver unscreened or screened soil to your Broadstairs property with our versatile grab hire vehicles. These include lorries that handle high volumes of muckaway waste, aggregates and topsoil, which can weigh up to 80 tonnes for large-scale projects.
