We are a family run business established by David and Rachel Edwards in 1995, selling grass seed, fertiliser and contract agricultural services. We quickly identified that to get the best out of the grass seed we supplied we needed to know what nutrients were available within the soil, and Soil Advisory was born.
Our son Mike joined the business in 2002, followed by his partner Claire, and the team continues to grow. The current workforce includes individuals skilled in engineering, formulation development, design and marketing.
We now offer spraying, spreading, direct drilling and aeration contract services to the Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Welsh Borders.
Aeration is a major contributor in maintaining soil health and in 2016, using our extensive knowledge of repairing inferior models we designed and manufactured our own grassland aerators, which we believe are some of the best machines in the country. These are available for hire or sale, and we have supplied as far afield as Kent to Scotland.
In 2020, with our experience of working with soil to optimise growing conditions we decided to develop our own EASy range of soil treatments using UK harvested seaweed as the base. All our products undergo extensive trials prior to release to market. Our objective is cost effective solutions for efficient agricultural practices working with nature. We have both Organic and Non-Organic products available, and if you use our soil analysis service, make recommendations on what, how much and when to apply.
The key to the success of our business has always been soil testing, and always will be.
