10 x Handy Bags of Woodchip in nominal 10 - 40mm sized particles. Flyte so Fancy Hard Wood Chips conform to British standard BS: EN1177:1998.
They do not contain recycled wood waste or bark mulch. These Handy Bags weigh approx 15-20kg, depending on the moisture content of woodchips i.e. the season.
Estimate one sack will cover approx 10 sq ft with a 2-3in depth (To clarify: 10 sq feet is an area of 10ft by 1ft or approx 1metre by 1metre).To calculate your run area:- length times width divided by 10 equals the number of bags you need. So a 9ft x 9ft run would need 8 bags (9 x 9 = 81, divide by 10 = 8). 10 bags will cover 100 sq ft or approx 10 sq metres.

If ordering large quantities of woodchip to store for later use (very economical if you have the space to store them), then we do advise making sure there are air holes in the stored bags to allow moisture to escape and prevent sweating inside the plastic bags, which can produce (harmless) moulds.
Delivery of Woodchip is via Palletline Transport company and the carriage starts e.g. to postcodes in mainland England, at £39.95 - for other areas just add to basket, select destination postcode and delivery will be shown.

The driver will place the pallet in a convenient place on your property for you to unpack as you wish (the driver will not unpack the pallet for you or remove it). A signature on delivery is preferable but if you are happy for the pallet to be left safely please mention this when ordering.
