Here at Binder Loams, based in Ongar Essex, we are committed to providing a quality product in all areas of turf dressings and topsoil.
Binder's moto 'quality, quality, quality' has been etched into our staff to ensure we remain leaders in our field for producing the most popular cricket dressings and topsoils in the country.
This website sets out a large range of our products. We supply everyone from a local house owner to our most famous customer, Lord’s Cricket ground. Our products range from our standard BS3882:2007 compliant 20mm Screened Topsoil to our widely recognised 4mm Screened Ongar Loam™ Cricket Top Dressing.
In March 1996 we were the first company in our field to achieve a Registered Trade Mark. This was awarded to ONGAR LOAM™, our Test and County Cricket Pitch Dressing.
In April 2011 Binders was taken over by a local company who have worked alongside Binders since the 1990s. Retaining all original staff, the synergies between the two companies now means Binders excellent service can be maintained and even improved whilst maintaining the service you, as our customers, have grown accustomed to. Our renewed fleet of HGV mounted pallet forklifts and diverse array of tippers means any load, big or small can be catered for, loose or bagged.
Binder’s Ongar LoamTM has been used to construct the test pitches at Lords, the Oval, Old Trafford, Edgbaston, Glamorgan, Headingly, Trent Bridge, and the Ageas Bowl including many county clubs like Essex, Chester-le-street and Kent. Our customer base also includes The Queens Lawn Tennis Club who use our lower clay Tennis Top Dressing.
We accept nothing but the highest quality virgin topsoil to our Ongar depot generally sourced from agricultural or recreational fields. We visit each site before sending the soil for testing and compatibility with our products before importing any material. By accepting no recycled material we can ensure our products remain contaminant free at all times. Each stockpile of soil at Binders offers 100% traceability.
Any of the items on the following pages can be supplied loose by the cubic metre or bags of various sizes and the top dressings and sands can be supplied by the tonne. No order is too big or too small. Binders staff will be only too pleased to give advice in selecting the grade of material most suitable for any particular requirement.
Prices are dependent on quantity required and destination point. Please telephone, fax or email our helpful staff to obtain a quotation for your requirements. You can also obtain tender prices for annual and regular orders. Along with our competitive prices and the friability of our product we hope you can see the advantage of using Binders for your topsoil requirements.
Specialist mixes are also catered for. Please contact us for prices.
Many thanks for taking the time to view our website and we look forward to dealing with you in the near future.
