Delivery is currently between 3 - 10 working days depending on your location and the products you wish to order - please select an option at the Checkout.
We use a variety of delivery vehicles and haulage firms to complete our deliveries.
If you live in or near Chester, we'll deliver to you ourselves with a HGV crane, if you live elsewhere in the UK we'll use a pallet network who will use a manually operated pallet truck to move the pallet of bag(s) to the kerbside or onto a level, solid surface such as a tarmac drive (not gravel or grass sorry).
Shipping is free to Chester and some North Wales postcodes - outside of this area prices start at £24.95.

We do not chemically treat our products for weeds. Weeds thrive in warm, wet weather and especially in very fertile soils and composts like our own. Although every care is taken to remove weeds during our screening process we can not guarantee that weed seeds are not present in the soil or compost that you receive. To keep your topsoil organic we suggest pulling up common weeds, when and if they appear, instead of using chemical weed-killers. Or purchase some of our anti-weed prevent membrane and some gravel or mulch, for an easy weed-free garden!
Gravel Size & Colour
Images are for representation only. All products that Dandy’s supplies are naturally occurring products and may have slight variations in colour, size and content, individual rocks, stones or cobbles made be broken or misshaped because of this. Sizes of products specified are approximate and can vary. Naturally occurring products such as slate or gravel are sourced from quarries and so can often differ in appearance slightly from load to load.
