      Builders merchants here i think it BATS sell them for £5 each and you can get those yellow Hippo bags from wickes in different sizes I think they start at £12 for a substantial 1 tonne bag .

    I get mine free from the local council tip . Just ask it's always worth it and they get lots in and save them for me.

      By which I mean slashed on purpose to empty them.

      I am from the days before tonne bags, it did always seem easier to have sand and gravel loose.

      • Couldn't agree more Andrew.  I've always had a tipper.  Even now that we are soley garden maintenance, I can't get rid of my Cabstar Tipper - old habits die hard!!

         

  • look out for builders and ask them, over the years i have got loads of them i have just given about 20 away tonight to a young lad just starting up on his own

  • J&HM Dickson Ltd in Rutherglen sell them.

    They also sell smaller half-tonne bulk bags which are a handier size @ £3 or £4 each.
