Went shopping for these today and saw that they were £7.99 per bag in Homebase and a similar price in B&Q. Saved a fortune at £3 per bag. Found these in Cambridge Asda. Assuming it is nationwide.

Yup, seen in Stafford.
#2
will check tomorrow, been looking for these!

Heat added. 3 for £10 at B&M which is more of course but they have a very large range of aggregates, including plum slate (my personal favourite, looks amazing when wet) and limestone chippings etc.

Went to get them from B and M first, but had none in the Cambridge store.

slate sells out as sopn as it's unloaded. the nice Coltswold stone chippings are available more readily :-)

£2.75 a bag in my local B&M (selby) and they have loads of different types and plenty of stock.

I needed a lot and looked around on the internet - got 1000kg delivered for £97, much cheaper than buying the small bags from Asda etc. Grasslands Turf for anyone interested.

Bought some a few weeks ago - looks lovely in front garden

Same here (but from decorative aggregates) But if you don't need as much as we obviously did then this is a good deal, no doubt about it.

this has been at asda for weeks now, you can mix and match with the cotswold bags too. same price/offer.

Try local building merchants might find it cheaper
#12
Be aware this is quite coarse/chunky compared to the £6/7 bags of blue slate in B&Q. B&Q do stuff the same as this at £4 a bag. This is a great deal, but be sure it is the stuff you need if you are mixing from different sources.

Drive up to Snowdonia. They have 3 Billion tonnes of the stuff that they are trying to get rid of on the cheap. :-)

I think these bags in asda are 25kgs not the smaller 20kg that home bargains sell so are a better buy. Whole pallet full at asda West Swindon at 10:00 this morning

I hope it is as I am thinking of extending my drive using either the blue or purple slate not sure which colour yet.
I need to dig out yet and put some hard core down and do the rest of the prep work so I am in no rush but just checking how much the whole project will cost!
#19
im guessing 'yes' but is slate better then using tree bark? Reason being i heard u get woodlice with bark.

I've cleaned out my garden and to stop weeds i am going to put weed control fabric but what on top?

I made the switch from bark chippings to slate. After a while the bark decomposes to a crumb and doesn't smell too good. Bark Chip also easier for a cat to dig and leave you a gift.
#21
Having used bark in the garden for the kids play area it is ok for one summer then it gets a bit mucky and needs replacing. I think the slate looks great and will certainly be a lot cleaner.

it does , resin with pea shingle looks quite nice

This stuff safe for use as a cheap driveway? Been wanting to get rid of the grass on the front garden and turn it in to a drive but tarmacing is just too expensive...
#26
I imagine this is worse than bark when the local cats/squirrels/birds kick it into your lawn and then you go over it with the mower :|
#27
I want some of that rubber bark you mix with resin - looks great and can't be kicked about. Shame no-one does it ready mixed sheets
#28
Gave up on bark half of it blew away anyhow also the amount of spiders, ants and woodlice that used it as a personal home was insane and the snails can't forget about them !

These look great but been thinking of getting these to cover some odd places and some turf but I wonder does weeds and grass still grow on top?

Does anyone know how much a bag covers in square m?

Thanks for the heads up on this hutch1 - have gone for 1000kg of plum slate which should sort out my front garden, want to get rid of the terrible lawn (aka cat toilet) - free delivery too!

In my local, Inverness, the slate ones are £3.78 each per bag, but the yellow smaller ones are 3 for £10. Still, 3 bags for £11 is OK.

I got about 50cm x 40cm coverage at a decent depth. Spread out over 1m squared, it was patchy.
