As long as you don't ask for damp proof membrane, that's an entirely different product.

I put gravel down in my back garden and used a membrane which I got from B&Q it was about 3 years ago so forgot how much I paid for it but it was about one metre width rolls and I think about 25 metre lengths.

Be warned though you wont stop all the weeds but the vast majority will be kept away, my garden gets weeds from the seeds in the bird droppings and it dont help that my garden backs on to a large woods.

And the weeds ONLY have the moisture/rain to allow them to germinate, good luck though well worth doing and if done correctly it will look very nice.

You should try your local builders merchant and ask for terram,good stuff,not sure on the price though.

Terram is excellent for larger areas. I've also used Plantex when terram was unavailable.
