Material quantity can be determined by computing the square footage of the area being landscaped.
Measure the length of area and multiply by the width of the area to get your square footage.
Length x Width = Square Footage (example 15'x25' = 375')
Divide 375' by 100 = 3.75 tons of material, 2" in depth
1 ton of rock will cover approximately:
2"-4" rock will cover approximately:
5"-12" rock will cover approximately:
Driveway or Pad
Standard Driveway or Pad:
15'x25' = 375 square feet
1/4 Minus or 3/8 Minus is great for driveways or pathways. Madison Gold or Table Mesa Brown
creates nice accent colors.
1 Ton = 2,000 LBS
1 Ton = 5-1/2 Level Wheelbarrows
1 Yard = 7 Level Wheelbarrows
1 Cubic Yard = 6-7 Level Wheelbarrows
20 Shovels = 3 Cubic Foot Wheelbarrow
L - Shaped Driveway or Pad
This would be done in two sections
18'x40' = 720 square feet
10'x40' = 400 square feet
400' + 720' = 1, 120 square feet
