How Much Soil Will I Need?
Calculating the quantity of soil you will require to fill your planter is relatively simple; you just need to multiply the length of your planter by the width and the height in metres, multiply by 1000 and the figure you arrive at is the amount of compost you'll need in litres e.g.
1.8m long x 0.25m wide x 0.2m high = (1.8 x 0.25 x 0.2) x 1000 = 90 litres
There is a calculator on the Rolawn Soil page to make things easier. The soil is available in bulk 1000 litre tote bags so ideal if you are looking to fill a number of planters. For more details on filling your metal planter please contact our Customer Services Team.
