Thanks needed the white spar!!


It's usually 3 bags for £10 in B&M. Also worth looking in Homebase at the moment, as they've had some good deals. We've been getting the 30/50mm blue slate for £3 a bag.

About the same price at decorativeaggregates. Here's a tip for anyone ordering 40mm slate chippings - do NOT buy the loose bulk bag as you just can't get a shovel through it!! I ended up literally getting it out of the bag with my bare hands. Horrible. Order the 50 poly bags, your hands/body will thank you for it!

Yes I agree.
I needed 25 major bag (approx 500kg) to cover what I thought I'd cover in 10!

Indeed. It's actually a lot more economical to haggle with a local builders merchants for tonne bag/s delivered to site.

How do we know this isn't your business and you're advertising it?

Only joking (maybe)
Nice price though!
What kg bags are they ??
Major bags are a bit of a joke, nothing major about them. Bought some of the Cumbrian red chippings last time they were on offer. One bag just disappeared into a vast wilderness of bare soil to cover

You don't but if I owned the companies I have been accused of owning on this site over the years I would probably be only a few quid behind Bezos now he's to pay his ex that wedge.

Seriously, though, no connection whatsoever but I've had good service and prices from them over the years.
If you've got a Range near you, you can get these size bags for £9 for 3.

The Range bags are smaller (20kg) though I agree they are still a better deal.

As a guide how many 20kg bags of plum slate would you need to cover 10sq metres?

That would depend on how deep you require it but IME to get a depth that is deep enough to be able to walk on it without scattering it and exposing the soil beneath budget for 40 bags!

And don't forget to use a weed membrane below the slate. We've done this and haven't had one weed poke it's pesky head through in 3 years!

Wow, amazing! Is that 1000kg In 50 bags and delivered? Any chance of details to see if they deliver anywhere? Need some more plum slate. Cheers.

Bang average prices. I don't understand the heat.
Can anyone suggest how many bags of wickes.co.uk/Wic…131 would I need - looking to cover about 8" wide by 10 feet space on both sides of the decking? Will 3 bags be enough or I need more? Thanks a lot in advance.

They usually give heat to some random deals.
