MOT Type 1 Sub Base Hardcore stone consists of a crushed aggregate material. The crushed aggregate material is used to provide a stable sub-base for roads and pathways - hence the name 'MOT Type 1'. Due to the fine consistency of the material, it will ensure that there are minimal voids in the sub-layer when it has been compacted. Although it is often used in the construction of pathways and road surfaces, it is also suitable to use in gardens, driveways and patios with the added bonus of the material acting as a weed suppressant.

The sub-base material should be used under the layer of sand when you are preparing the ground for paving. When compacted correctly the sub-base has a huge load-bearing capacity, capable of supporting the weight over a wider area. A foundation of 100mm is required for wet or unstable ground, whilst 150mm is required for domestic driveways. The bulk bag will contain a minimum weight of 850kg.

Materials Calculator

This calculator will provide you with an estimate of how much concrete sand, weed membrane and sub-base you will need for your paving project. As this is purely an estimate for perfectly level ground, we highly recommend seeking advice from a professional landscaper  before buying any concrete sand or sub-base. We do not take any responsibility for excess materials.

How Do I Use The Calculator?

Select from the drop down menu where the paving will be located: driveway, back garden or solid, level ground. Select solid, level ground if you're replacing existing paving and the sub-base is already in place.

Enter the width and height in metres of the area you wish to pave, this will generate the area you need to pave in square metres. If you already know the area, skip the width and height and type that directly into the area box.

Once you've hit enter, you will then see an estimate of the concrete sand, weed membrane and sub-base you require. Click the buttons below each product to buy:
