A Huge Range of Affordable Aggregate in Faversham | Shaw Haulage

Some of the most popular aggregates that we supply to clients in the Faversham area include classic blends that are instrumental in the mixture of concrete – things like basalt, limestone, quartz and marble. But at Shaw Haulage – muckaway, grab hire and land restoration specialists for the Kent area – that’s not all we have in stock…

Our aggregate suppliers also serve as the go-to source of screened and unscreened topsoil in the Faversham area and its surrounds. Now there are many different reasons why you might require a quantity of top soil delivered to your site via our grab hire fleet, so knowing which type will best suit your project and the various differences between the two is essential. So without further ado…

Unscreened & Screened Top Soil – the Differences

Size – Unscreened – During the provision of muckaway and land restoration services, not just in Faversham but in all areas of Kent, we accumulate a large amount of topsoil. This is then stored at our base, until a client needs it. Our grab hire vehicle will then transport a precisely weighed quantity to their site via a grab hire vehicle, which will allow for easy unloading. Unscreened top soil is likely to contain things like rocks, stoned, roots and weeds, which means it’s best used for:

  • Building foundations for garden development projects
  • Filling in excavations
  • Levelling out surfaces
  • Constructing raised flower beds
  • Particular aspects of land restoration

Screened – Bringing top soil to a recycling centre near Faversham allows us to screen the soil and remove all the aforementioned detritus and foreign objects. The end result is a top soil that is more nutritionally rich, breathable and much finer – attributes that encourage the growth of flowers, hedges and trees. It’s just as ecologically sustainable, again being sourced from muckaway jobs, and similar work. Our aggregate suppliers would urge clients to consider screened top soil for:

  • Drainage infrastructure
  • New lawns and turf
  • Any planting scheme

We’re always happy to provide tailored advice after speaking with a client over the telephone or during the course of a site survey. The same commitment to quality customer service informs our grab hire, land restoration and muckaway services, available to all Faversham residents and trades / companies operating in the area.
