At Terra Firma we are intent on listening closely to our customers. Analysing and addressing your needs is the cornerstone of our well renowned customer relationship and we believe it is essential for the success of any business customer relationship. From our customer feedback we learn to fine tune our service, evolve new ideas and constantly build up our knowledge pool.
Our Values - At Terra Firma we work to simple straight forward aims; we want our customers to say:
- Prices are good
- I can get what I want
- I don't have to wait weeks for delivery
- The staff are friendly and efficient
- If I need advice, I get rapid, reliable and responsible advice
These five aims may sound simple but we know that if we don't get these things right we will not have a sustainable well functioning business.
Stock - We invest heavily in stock for these simple reasons; it improves delivery lead times and allows customers to collect ex stock. Land Managers, groundsmen and greenkeepers are often at the mercy of short weather windows; it's the nature of the industry we work in. We cannot always carry every item but we meticulously plan to have in season stock to facilitate rapid delivery to our customers.
Staff Training - Ongoing staff training keeps our team up to date and able to give the best advice - we benefit from in house manufacturer training, legislative training and agronomic training and our field sales staff are committed to training to the statutory BASIS certificate for pesticide.
Customer Support - We regularly hold customer information seminars and training days; our in house knowledge base is supplemented by the expertise of our manufacturer suppliers. Up to date industry knowledge is key in these fast changing times when application technology and methodology advances often leave others behind.
Nationwide Deliveries - At Terra Firma we realise that customers often require goods at short notice. Through our network of carriers and our own modern delivery vans we can supply 90% of the UK on a next day basis (subject to stock availability and time of order). For those customers who do not require delivery so quickly we are very flexible with regards to dates and times to suit their requirements.
In July 2017 we joined forces with Sherriff Amenity - this will allow the two businesses to combine existing technical expertise and broad product ranges to provide land managers, local authorities, contractors, groundsmen and greenkeepers in Scotland with a full agronomy service, research driven advice, new product innovation and access to an extensive local distribution network.

KRISTA - K is a highly soluble form of Potassium Nitrate. The nitrogen element is in Nitrate form, immediately available to the grass plant furthermore the synergistic effect between K+ and NO3 - facilitates the uptake of both ions by the plant roots, the potassium 'piggybacks' on the Nitrogen resulting in more potassium getting into the plant quickly. This is soluble, low cost feed. It works in cold weather, hardens up turf, can be used on all grass areas and has horticultureal uses as well.

Paradise is a residual herbicide containing 25% Flazasulfuron and is formulated as a soluble granule which readily dissolves in the spray tank.
Paradise's modern chemistry means an ultra-low rate of use, an overall rate of use of 150g/hectare; typically 5g to a 20 litre knapsack.
Paradise is usually added to a glyphosate for combines systemic and residual weed control.
Paradise is approved for use in established shrub beds and amenity plantings in addition to non crop and for gravel car parks and industrial sites.
Weed control is a vital part of maintaining an urban environment. Unwanted vegetation if left uncontrolled can lead to structural damage to pavements, roads, recreational and play areas and generally degrade the aesthetics of neighbourhoods.
The recent withdrawal of a number of important herbicide active ingredients together with the proliferation of EU legislation has made the whole task of planning and executing a weed control program much more difficult.
Terra Firma understands the sensitivity required in undertaking weed control within public areas, offering a strategic approach based upon the safety of people, animals and the surrounding environment which is why we have as our client base many local authorities, professional weed control contractors, utilities and large industrial sites.
For Industry leading expertise or advice on any aspect of the new EU thematic strategy and EU sustainable use directive make sure you contact Terra Firma.
