Type 1 Scalping FAQs

What is Type 1 Scalping used for?

Type 1 scalping is a primary base material used under driveways and patios to ensure a stable and level foundation. Its composition helps in compaction, providing a solid base to support the surface layer.

Is there a maximum depth for applying it?

For the best levels of compaction and stability, it’s recommended not to exceed a depth of 200mm/8inches in a single layer. For thicker layers, compact in stages to ensure a firm base.

Can Type 1 Scalping be used for drainage?

Yes, while its primary use is for creating a solid base, Type 1 scalping has good drainage properties, making it suitable for use in areas where water runoff and drainage is a concern.

Excellent product at a sensible price from a local supplier. Staff are friendly and willing to help: I asked if just one bag of topsoil could be delivered quickly and it arrived next day! Great service.

Smooth execution of the transaction and delivery. Very helpful phone call and conversation. Ordered three bags of Border Blend topsoil. Paid by Paypal. They delivered, on the specified date, carefully, exactly where I wanted the bags placed. All in all, a very pleasing purchase. The topsoil was excellent and had been very carefully prepared. No lumps. Would definitely recommend and I will use again. Everyone I spoke to was nice and helpful.

Ordered topsoil on Tuesday came by Friday at the exact time quoted. Was WAY cheaper than anywhere else (by about £15 per bag) and was dropped off via a crane on back of the lorry, not by pallet which most of the other places use. Soil was fine and dry. Brilliant !
