20mm Pea Gravel FAQ:

What colour gravel will I receive?

PLEASE NOTE. COLOUR/TYPE OF GRAVEL VARIES DEPENDING ON YOUR LOCATION IN THE UK. To give you an idea, it may be worthwhile to check out our blog ''A look at the colours and uses of gravel''. Whilst not set in stone, excuse the pun, this will give a good idea for different regions of the UK.

What type of stones will be delivered?

20mm gravel is sometimes referred to as 20mm pea gravel or 20mm pea shingle. Care needs to be taken here though if a rounded gravel is required (as the name pea suggests). In some areas of the UK, the gravel is rounded such as a pea but in other areas, it can be a more angular, sharper stone.

If colour or type is and issue, please contact our sales team on 01274 602367 or email sales@buildershoponline.co.uk where we'll be able to advise what sort of stones are available in your area.

Can I choose what colour gravel I will receive?

The only way to get specific colours would be to order from our Decorative Aggregates category. Here you will find more specialist colour of gravel and chippings but they do command a higher price.

How do I calculate how much gravel I need?

1000kg will cover approximately 10m2 at 50mm thick. 20mm Gravel Bulk Bags will cover between 8 - 10m2 at 50mm thick. If you need more help, please use the contact details above to get in touch with your measurements and we will be happy to help.

What price is 20mm gravel per ton?

Based on the price as it is today (16/11/23), 1 bulk bag of gravel costs £52.50 + £20 delivery ex VAT. Working on the bag weighing the minimum amount of 800kg, the cost per tonne would be £90.63. If 2 bags were ordered then it would be free delivery so the cost per tonne (working on an 800kg bag) would come down to £65.63. When buying in larger bulk load deliveries, the price becomes substantially less expensive as the goods are delivered and tipped loose direct from the quarries.

How are bulk bags delivered?

Typically, bulk bags of 20mm Gravel are delivered on large crane off load wagons that weigh between 17 - 32 tonnes. These are equipped with a crane that has an approximate reach of 5 metres which can then place the bag in the most suitable position from where is can safely park. If delivery is to a residential address, the wagon usually needs around 3 - 4 car lengths to be able to get close to the kerb for optimum reach. The cranes cannot lift over parked vehicles and there must be no overhead obstructions such as power cables, telephone cables or branches.

If the above delivery method isn't possible, other options such as pallet delivery maybe arranged. This would come at a substantial additional cost though and would need arranging prior to an order being placed.
