Whilst on the flat garage roof last week I noticed that the gravel was
getting a bit thin in places - I've looked in Wicks but everything there was
way too big. The stones are about 5mm and light grey. I really dont need a
lot, a couple of 25Kgs bag would have done.
Before I go into the builders merchants and walk out with a bucket of steam
and a bubble for spirit level - does this stuff have a name?
Probably pea gravel at that size, and colour match is down to your
eyesight but the grey colour may be termed as blue.
Might be a pic here (this site is (probably) Australian but should
give names/pictures etc).
If you don't mind feeling put down by the workmen in the builders
merchants you could go armed with the piccie and ask what there version
is called, but I think "5mm pea gravel in a sort of grey colour" will
Did you actually get down and look at the gravel or did it appear grey
from the top of the garage . Pea gravel is actualy multicoloured but
from a distance all the colours appear to merge and the overall result
I would grab a handful of it off the roof and tour round your local
sand/gravel suppliers. Then you can compare it directly. also I would
measure up first and go armed with the amount required, in cu mtrs, they
probably sell it by the tonne, but will be able to convert for you.
Completely ignore me. I was under the impresion that while you were on
the roof of the garage that you had looked down at the drive and noticed
it was sparse in spots didn't realise that it was GRAVEL ON THE ROOF
that you were talking about. Mmm maybe that Australian (?) web site
will give you ideas on what it should be called
