Well, to actually help the OP, one tonne will cover approximately ten square metres at 50mm thick. That goes for pretty much all common materials, except soil which is much lighter per cubic metre. Oh, and those bulk bags are approx. half a cubic metre, or one tonne. We used to put a tonne in each, but we started to see our sales drop, so we acquired bags from all our local competitors, and weighed them. The amounts in some were, quite frankly, embarrassing, given that most of the local…
