Blackfords was founded in 1967 primarily as a turf grower and retailer to supply the local market. Blackfords employed the current owner, Peter Short as manager some twenty years ago and allowed him a free hand to develop the turf business and introduce other complimentary products such as topsoil, mulch and bark, compost and soil fertiliser.


Throughout the years as Manager and Owner Peter has guided Blackford’s Turf and Topsoil to be Wiltshire’s premier supplier of turf and topsoil and the company of choice in that field.
