Frequently Asked Questions
How big of an area do you need for gravel?
The depth you will need to select for your gravel or slate will always depend on the aggregate size and what the surface will be used for. We estimate an area of 5 metres by 5 metres, with a depth of 40mm, would require approximately three bulk bags of aggregates, slate chippings or gravel. Can you use the gravel calculator for all aggregates?
What kind of gravel do I need for a driveway?
What depth of gravel do I need? You would usually lay a 10mm aggregate at a depth of 30-40mm, but on a driveway this would need to be at least 50mm. A 20mm aggregate would need to be at least 40-50mm deep, and at least 50-60mm on driveways. A larger aggregate will settle and bond together better than smaller ones.
