White Gravel Stones

Post by kansas » Thu Jul 29, 2021 3:06 pm

Can anyone advise source and price for the larger type white gravel stones in the one cubic meter open top bags, which I believe comprise a ton. Someone has suggested that Paphos Home Market is best. Any opinions please?

Thanks

kansas, and wait for the pedantic to come along and comment of the relative density of gravel.....

Yes Anavargos is good. One stop also, and opposite the community office in Kallepia is an aggregates seller with many different grades.

Spending on where you live, ask around in your local village, a few, like ours seem to have a gravel man, who if you need a lot can do a full lorry load at a much better rate, or in our case will even deliver a scoop or 3 with his JCB. If that’s not an option, Paphos Home Market, PlantFix are good options as mentioned above.

Yes the Home Markets sells them in metric ton and 25 kilo bags, it's a while since I bought a ton but think they were around €50 per ton. Depending on how many ton you need you can buy a wagon load of around 32 ton which works out a lot cheaper.

DIY One stop, does it and 50 euro/ton is about right. If you can take it loose it drops to 35 to 38 per ton. Problem in the past with Paphos Home Market, is the size of their truck. They required a 5m width drive, hence I use DIY One Stop. It has been a few years since I enquired of PHM, may have changed. Haggle over delivery charges.

When the lorry has a crane they put out jacks to steady the truck this will make the truck much wider
