^^ I make that around a cubic metre and from what I know a cubic metre of hardcore is around 2 tonnes.

You require about 0.9 cuic metres of hardcore, from what I know 1 cubic metre = 2 tonnes so I say you need 2 tonnes.

abt 2 inch deep i think. we went down 5 inch from the damp course then had type 1 compacted down then layer of cenet with 40mm thick slabs on it. took 2.5 tonnes of type 1 and abot just over 1 ton of sand.

Hardcore is around 1.9 - 2 tonnes per cubic metre.
2 inches is approx. 51mm.

18 x 0.051 = 0.92cu m.

So if you round up, you want to cover an area of 1 cubic metre, so you'll need 2 tonnes of hardcore.

Simples....
