Type 1 (Loose)
We sell Type 1 sub base (also known as Hardcore) in 25kg bags, bulk bags and loose (for collection) by the tonne.
Type 1 is a multifunctional aggregate that is very hardwearing making it excellent for a number of different uses. These include:
- Raised garden beds
- Creating a retaining wall
- Land-filling tasks – like laying the foundations of a new garage or shed
Type 1 is used as a bulk fill and levelling material. Commonly, this is used as a base layer to provide a foundation for further layers above, ie. Asphalt, paving or decorative gravel. It is easy compactible and provides excellent drainage.
