Hi
Does anyone know anywhere that does a good offer if you're buying quite a few bags? We are doing our back garden, its not huge but not tiny so we need quite a few bags and some of that weed suppressant sheeting but i think it may end up costing quite a bit!

lol i live 5 mins walk from the beach i think it will take me a fair time to collect that many though!

depends how much you need, a ton of decorative gravel/ pebbles will be about £50 delivered from a builders yard, If you were to buy that amount in small bags from B&Q it would cost you double.
My dad made the mistake of underestimating how much he would need, bought 5 small bags, then another 5, then another 5, then 3 more then 2 more. cost him about £90, he could have got a ton delivered for £45.

Hi

look up stone merchants in your yellow etc. Then go and see them with your rough measurements. They should have a good range and will work out how much you need. Rememeber you need width depth and thickness.

I did it this way got a different stone, great service and saved a bundle
good luck
