How much will you need?
This depends on how big an area you have and how thick you want the coverage to be.
As a guide, 1 cubic metre compacted will cover approx. 10 m2 at 75 mm thick.
For successful laying, we recommend you:
- Dig out the intended area to be covered, to a depth of approx. 75mm
- Slightly dampen the material chosen and spread evenly with shovel
- Smooth out with the back of a rake or similar object
- Water LIGHTLY
- Best results are gained when a roller or compacter is used to compact the material.
