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 much gravel do I need to buy?
  • How much gravel do I need to buy?

    Gravel is calculated by volume. As a guide, 30 sq meters, to a depth of 25 mm (1 inch), will require 1 tonne of gravel.

HOW TO ORDER

Oxford Shingle

Oxford Shingle

Our Oxford range of shingles have both aesthetic and practical uses; they look great when used on driveways and paths, but also work well if you're using them for land drainage and pipe bedding. Shingle also works very well as mulch and thus is an excellent and good-looking solution for flowerbeds. A rising trend is the surfacing of large areas in the garden with decorative shingle. It looks great and provides a low maintenance solution if your garden is hard to handle.

Oxford shingles are available in a mixture of natural beiges and earthy colours, so they'll fit in anywhere, while still adding that little something extra to the landscape. When it comes to size we recommend either 10 or 20mm shingle for gardening or landscaping, 10mm shingle for pipe bedding and 40mm shingle for land drainage.
