Description

Our Horticultural 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 the colour of our current stock!

A teeny weeny 1-6mm this is perfect for potting up and for improving drainage, breaking up clay soil etc.  Can also be used as a "pot topper" for house plants and for growing alpines such as succulents.

We can supply you with 3 sizes of bulk bag:

  • Jumbo Bulk Bag which contains approx 1000kg (one tonne) *BEST BUY*
  • 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.

 

Delivery and Shipping

Standard Delivery is currently between 3 - 15 working days.

Next Working Day may be available depending on your location; please select an option at the checkout (this will vary during Christmas and over bank Holidays).

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 Cheshire, Flintshire, Wrexham, Manchester, Merseyside and Liverpool - outside of this area prices start at £19.95.

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

Crusherrun

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

Conversion:

1 tonne = 1000kgs / 1 Jumbo Bag

1 cubic metre = 1000ltrs / 1 Jumbo Bag

Samples

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

Weeds

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.
