Weights & Measures

All sizes, weights & measures displayed online, in store, on any advertisements, posters or any other form of promotional material published by Earlswood Nurseries Ltd are approximate.
We try to be as accurate as possible with all details however, sizes, weights and measures will vary from time to time, especially with natural products and this is completely out of our control.
If you require specific sizes, weights or measures of any given product(s), we strongly recommend you visit our centre to conduct you own individual research to check the details listed.

Timber Sizes

All timber sizes displayed are nominal.
Nominal timber sizes are the dimensions the timber was originally cut to before being dried and machined or planed. The actual finished size may be smaller than the quoted nominal size.
If your project requires exact dimensions, please visit our centre to check before placing your order.
Quoting nominal sizes for timber is an industry-standard practice.

Bulk Bags & Loose Loads

The bulk bags used by Earlswood Nurseries Ltd are designed to hold 0.6cu.m of product.

Our bulk bags and loose load orders are measured from a loose pile using a specially designed bucket that allows us to provide you with an accurate measure for each purchase.
Some of our bulk bags may contain more than 0.6cu.m of product however, this is not to be deemed as standard or guaranteed for future orders.
Please note: Bulk bags of gravel and sand bagged by Earlswood Nurseries Ltd provide an approximate weight of 1000kg (1 tonne)

Due to our tipper vehicle's weight & volume limitations, loose orders are limited to a maximum of:
*6 full loose loads (3cu.m) for heavy goods such as gravel, sand, MOT etc per delivery.
*10 full loose loads (5cu.m) for bark products per delivery.

You may order more than the maximum number of loose loads, each additional delivery up to the limited cu.m amount (3 for heavy goods and 5 for bark*) will be charged at the full delivery cost paid when placed on a single order to the same delivery location. Our sales team will contact you once your order is placed to confirm any additional charges.

Paving Measurements and Coverage

All dimensions quoted are nominal. Hand cut products in particular will have tolerances and we will endeavour to make note of these where possible.
The area quoted for paving products includes the appropriate joint widths. This enables you to purchase the correct amount of paving to cover a given area. Where space is critical, we advise you to visit the centre to measure a selection of pieces and consult our sales team to ensure we supply you with the correct quantities for your project.
