    Pros:  ordering process
    Cons:  over-stated coverage

    "The coverage 0.35m2 at 50mm depth is over-stated. I would recommend to anyone to purchase much more than would be calculated from this figure - and return any excess - if there is any."

    "Good quality ballast mixed easily with a little cement to make a new garden path. Did not need the sand I purchased separately and was able to get a refund on the bags I did not need. Recommended."
