Our Alpine Grit is usually a mix of blacks, whites, pinks and greys, but occasionally it might be just the brown and greys or it could be blends of golds and buffs - please get in touch to check out our current stock!

As a teeny weeny 2 - 6mm aggregate this is perfect for potting up alpines and succulents, topping off pots, borders and inside ponds - it is also great for improving drainage and breaking up clay soil!

We can supply you with 3 sizes of bulk bag (see image):

  • Jumbo Bulk Bag which contains approx 1000kg (one tonne)
  • Standard bulk bag contains about 750kg (same as most builders merchants)
  • Half Bulk Bag contains approx 500kg

    Small Handy Bags are 25kg and the perfect option if you want a small quantity or if you have access issues and will need to carry through your house or over any walls etc.

    Quantity Calculations

    Topsoil and Sand

    Length (m) X Width (m) = m2 

    m2 X 1.2 X Depth (inches)... then divide your total by 36 = tonnes required

    Bark, Mulch and Compost

    Length (m) X Width (m) = m2 

    m2 x 0.05 = cubic metres per 2 inch/50mm depth

    Garden Lawn Turf

    Length (m) X Width (m) = amount of rolls needed.  We advise that you order 10% extra so that you have plenty for offcuts.

    Natural Stone Paving

    Length (m) X Width (m) = m2 you need.  Our packs are 15.25m2.

    Gravel and Slate

    Length (m) X Width (m) = m2 

    m2 x 0.04 = tonnes per 1 inch/25mm depth


    Use the Gravel Calculator then multiply by 1.25 (= tonnes per inch)


    1 tonne = 1000kgs / 1 Jumbo Bag

    1 cubic metre = 1000ltrs / 1 Jumbo Bag


    Samples are sent with Royal Mail 2nd class service so please allow 3 to 5 working days (please allow extra during Royal Mail Strikes).

    Samples are chosen at random and naturally occurring products may vary slightly in shade and particle size, from load to load.

    This is a small amount of product that will fit in your hand, approx 100gms per sample.

    Product Disclaimer


    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/Stone 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, natural stone paving or gravel are sourced from quarries and so can often differ in appearance slightly from load to load.

    Very rapid delivery

    Good product, good price. I would have appreciated more notice before delivery. The email informing me must have been sent pretty much as the delivery took place at 8am, luckily the landscaper was there to receive it because I wasn't
