Local shingle is a very popular general purpose shingle ideal for a multitude of uses including drainage, pathways, drives and decorative garden borders. Cotswold buff in colour, this shingle is available in four different stone sizes to suit. Available in jumbo bulk bags, half jumbo bulk bags or 23kg small bags - see our bag size guide below.
The average depth of gravel required for borders, footpaths or decorative garden areas is 50mm, however it may be a good idea to increase this to 75mm for driveways. We highly recommend using our helpful aggregate calculator to approximate the amount required for your project. Please note that these coverage measurements do not allow for compaction.
A full 850kg jumbo bulk bag will cover approximately 10-12m² at a depth of 50mm.
A 450kg half jumbo bulk bag will cover approximately 5-6m² at a depth of 50mm.
You'll need approximately three 23kg small bags to cover 1m² at a depth of 50mm.
