Dealing with bulk quantities can be tricky. We've gathered together a set of useful calculators that will help you to work out how much you need of different products to complete your job. We are also happy to help you with your product calculations over the phone.

Here are some tables to show you how much bulk product you can fit in a ute, trailer or in our delivery trucks.
|Very Large Truck||2.6m||3.2m||3.4m|
|Load Limits:||Mulch & Garden Soils||Top Dress||Sand, Gravel, Concrete Blend||Bases||Recycled Gravel|
|Very Large Truck||16m³||12.7m³||9.75m³||8.25m³||11m³|
To work out how much in m3 you will need for your project, you need to be able to work out the area of the space you wish to fill and then how deep you want the fill to be.
To calculate m3 - LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH
If you want to fill a series of 10 flower borders with bark and each border space is 0.4m x 1.2m, then the area of each flower border = 0.48m2 and if you would like bark to a depth of 10cm then you need to multiply the area 0.48m2 by 0.1m (10cm expressed in metres). This makes each flower border 0.048m3
So you will need about 0.5m3 to complete your job.
