Common FAQ's

  • What size gravel should I use for pathways and drives?
  • What size gravel should I use for pathways and drives?

    The most common sizes we supply are 10mm and 20mm gravel. 10mm is usually best for pathways, as it is easy to walk on. The 20mm is best for drives, because the smaller 10mm gravel may get into the treads of car tyres.

HOW TO ORDER

Concrete Aggregates

Concrete Aggregate

We supply a full range of aggregates for making ready mixed concrete products and domestic home mixed concrete. All materials comply with the requirements of BS EN 12620 the euro standard for concrete aggregates.
The basic method is to blend sand and shingle to the desired proportions, add cement for the required strength, and then add water to attain a suitable workability for the project. The resultant mix is then placed either in prepared formwork or, as in precast operations into a prepared mould. This is then left to harden and kept moist until cured. This will result in a hard durable material for footpaths, driveways and hard standings or any hard landscaping application where concrete is required. These materials are also suitable for over sites, floors and many applications in the construction industry.
