Bourne Amenity

From a business originally rooted in agriculture, we have adapted and developed over the past 70 years into one of the country's leading suppliers and specialists in the provision of high quality landscaping and sports turf materials. We are a third generation family run business with a focus and dedication to detail that has seen us thrive in the area of specialist soils and growing media.

Although our head office is based in Kent's smallest village, Newenden, our rapid growth has seen us invest in blending facilities across the south-east, allowing us to deliver our high quality materials nationwide.

One of the keys to our dedication to the landscaping industry is the continual investment in our haulage fleet. The increasing prominence of deliveries into tight urban spaces, coupled with consistently challenging legislation means that our vehicles and drivers are under more scrutiny than ever. Having our own fleet of FORS Gold accredited vehicles allows us the flexibility to respond immediately to challenging projects and give peace of mind to customers working on confined and highly regulated sites.

We work closely with organisations such as BALI and the Landscape Institute to ensure our materials and service are in line with the high demands of our customers and our attention to detail goes someway to making life easier in this increasingly challenging industry.

Jonathan has headed up the sales team for the past 11 years and seen sales almost double in that period.

With a keen interest in the technical side of materials, Bourne Amenity is in good hands.
