Sample Matching Service

Loose aggregate image for sample matching serviceFor those harder to find decorative gravels, or to match a product already existing on site – our swift sample match service and customer resource service has been invaluable to both private and trade customers. Here are some hints and tips:

1. Select a handful of gravel only

2. Seal in a polythene bag

3. Label with your contact details (Name, address, phone number) and the quantity of gravel you will be ordering. Place in a sturdy envelope.

4. Post to us at :

Armstrong Sand and Gravel • Shalden Green Cottage • Shalden Green Road • Shalden • Hampshire • GU34 4DT

We will contact you to let you know the type of Gravel you have sent us and a price for delivery of the quantity you have requested. Please be aware that stone is a natural product and colour can often vary due to the different methods of quarrying the gravel.

If you have had a gravel on your drive way for several years and wish to have a ‘top up’ we ask that you consider the fact that the quarry will be digging in a different seam by the time you order. This can be overcome by raking in the new gravel to mix.
