Answer 1
You would need approx 60 bags of ballast for 1m3 of concrete. You may wish to look at our Jumbo bags of ballast as this would probably work out cheaper.

These products are only available to order in store, however your local store will be able to offer you a delivery service.

Answer 1
You generally want 4 to 6 times the amount so 25kg cement with 100kg to 150kg of ballast.

The more load bearing the more cement generally.

If you mean Product Code: 220082 then they aren't exact although they state on the side "Minimum Packed Weight 850kg" but its affected by how wet the ballast is too.

Question
How much ballast (weight) will I need to fill a space 40mm x 0.8m x 0.1m?
I need to fill a void with ballast before laying a cover, probably of slate chippings, over the top, i.e. the ballast is only to avoid using too much expensive material to fill a void. Alternative fill materials, if cheaper, would be acceptable.
