HOW MUCH DO I NEED?

Here are some simple steps to determine the amount of product you require.

  1. Draw a rough sketch of the area you want to cover.
  2. Pace it’s length and width. Measure irregular bits separately.
  3. Each long pace equals roughly 1 metre.
  4. Decide how deep your path, patio or drive should be. 50mm (2”) is often enough for loose material, binding gravel should be thicker.
  5. Now do a simple sum – length x width x depth = cubic capacity
  6. Use either imperial or metric values, but don’t mix them.
  7. Convert to tonnes – all materials are sold by weight or metric volume.
NB: 1 Cubic yard = roughly 1.25 tonnes, 1 Cubic metre = roughly 1.5 tonnes
