How to Calculate

Have you ever wandered how tradies work out how much product you need when they landscape you yard? Would you like to know how easy this can be, if so read on......

The most important thing you need to do, is work out how many square metres you have to be covered or filled. This can be done by measuring the length in metres and the width in metres. Once you have these 2 lengths, you then need to multiply them by each other. This will give you your approximate square area!  L x W = M2

You then need to work out the depth that you want to cover or fill. You can do this with just a simple tape measure! Once you have all this information, you can use the following calculations:

SAND CALCULATION:        M2 X DEPTH X 1.6 (VOLUME) = TOTAL TONNAGE REQUIRED

GRAVEL CALCULATION:    M2 X DEPTH X 1.8  (VOLUME)=
TOTAL TONNAGE REQUIRED

When you need to work out the amount of mulch you need for a certain area, you apply a similar principle by working out the amount of metres squared that you have. With mulches, 1 cubic metre will cover 13 m2 @ 70mm thick. So lets say you have 27m2 of area and want it covered at the recommended coverage of 70mm, you would need to purchase 2 cubic metres.

But in the end, that is our job to help you out! Just bring in your design or measurement's and we can calculate your needs and organise it to get it to you!
