How much fine gravel do I need

Postby Grandad99 » Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:21 pm

One 30ft x40 inch side border was laid with black weedproof mesh fabric topped with fine gravel. It contains only a row of smallish conifers and over the years the dropped needles and airborne bits have enabled weeds to now take root in the gravel.

I want to remove and replace both the mesh fabric and gravel. No problem working out the amount of mesh needed but how much gravel will I want for a depth of 2 inches?
