FAQ

1 tonne of aggregate or pebbles will cover 10-12sqm to 1.5” depth, smaller aggregates will generally cover more than larger sized stones.

1 25kg bag will cover approximately .25sqm to 1.5” depth, this may vary dependant on the type of stone, but it is generally a good approximation.

In terms of the quantity of Memorial aggregates required for a grave, it is best to check with a monumental sculptor to determine how many bags are required.

1 single plot grave would generally require 6 x 25kg bags of Memorial Pebbles or aggregates.

Dry Dashing or Pebble Dashing: 1 25kg bag of aggregate covers 2sqm (your plasterer will have a good idea of the volumes required).

Limestone/Silver Sand: 1 25kg bag of Limestone Sand covers 1.25sqm (note please check with your plasterer).

Wet Dash – 1 tonne of wet dash will cover approximately 40sqm. Wet Dash already includes lime, therefore white or grey cement are added (depending on background) and water are added to produce the final dash.

We do not take returns of White Cement, but all other items are returned less a 10% restocking charge.

It is vital all dry dashing quantities are checked with your plasterer prior to placing an order.
