First I'd like to say what a great website - it's given me the confidence to plan and attempt block paving knowing that there's a good source of reference to fall back on! Keep up the good work!
I'm planning to block pave my driveway eventually, but I thought I'd start with the patio (20m) and then garden paths first - where it's not quite so visible! I've noted the DTp1 coverage/tonne rates and prices that you quote but I can't find any for sharp sand. Can you give me an idea of the sort of coverage per tonne at 50mm compacted depth? Thanks...

Hi Dave,

the coverage rate for sand is given on the Screeding page (IIRC) but you should find that, depending on moisture content, it's around 10m2 per tonne at 50mm deep
