We don't actually stock pebbles, just 20-5mm gravel. But you can pop up the road to Bliss Sand & Gravel and get some there Wink

Surely the riddle size of the pebbles will alter the weight, as smaller pebbles occupy less space and weigh more for the same volume, e,g gravel weighs more than cobbles, and there are several riddle sizes in between Smile

The number of variables is large, but using the 1cuft per 1cwt estimate gets the right amount to within 10%, and as we're not doing chemistry here, that's good enough.

Don't blame me for the name of their company, their publicity material is even worse: they call themselves Bliss "Sexy Gravels" Rolling Eyes

http://www.sexygravels.co.uk/ if you must look.

I think it takes real skill and dedication to come up with a colour scheme that clashes so badly. I must remember to mention your "appreciation" of their site next time I have to call them Very Happy

Pay attention 1sf (troll), the gravel company sell pebbles! (presumably garish multi-coloured ones).

That is another thought- does the colour of the pebbles effect the price?
