The most common questions we get pertain to how much "coverage" to expect from any particular rock or stone. This will vary depending on many factors, the location and use, but the rules of thumb below are a good starting point. Feel free to consult with a Yardco Rocks expert to discuss your specific needs!

Rock & Stone Conversion

Q:  How much Flagstone would I need to cover a 2,400 square foot Patio or Driveway?
A: 

Average: 1 ton covers approximately 100 s.f. @ ¾” to 1 ½” thick.

  1. 16 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea Exp: 16 x 1.5 x 100 = 2,400 s.f.
  2. 24 pallets @ 1.0 tons/2,000 lbs ea

Average: 1 ton covers approximately 90 s.f. @ 1 ½” to 2” thick.

  1. 13 pallets @ 2.0 tons/4,000 lbs ea
    Exp: 13 x 2.0 x 90 = 2,430 s.f.
  2. 18 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea
  3. 27 pallets @ 1.0 tons/2,000 lbs ea
   
Q:  How much Thin Veneer would I need to cover a 2,400 square foot Patio or Driveway?
A: 

Average: 1 ton covers approximately 180 s.f. @ ½” to1” thick.

  1. 9 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea Exp: 9 x 1.5 x 180 = 2,430 s.f.
   
Q:  How are your Beach PebblesRiver Rock and River Flats distributed?
A:  These are all distributed in 40 lb. bags.
   
Q:  What area would 1 bag or Beach PebblesRiver Rockand River Flats cover?
A: 

Average: 1 bag covers approximately 3 s.f. @ 2 stones deep (1” to 1 ¼” deep).

The bigger to pebble/rock; the smaller the coverage and vice versa - the smaller the pebble/rock; the larger the coverage.

This applies to stone, 2” to 2 ½” in diameter, and applies to our beach pebbles & river rock & flats.

One 40 lb. bag of Beach Pebbles, 3 ¼”to 3 ¾”, yields 2 ½ s.f. @ 2 stones deep (2” deep)

One 40 lb. bag of Mini Confetti or Chattahoochee, 1/8” to ½”, yields 4 s.f. @ 1 ½” to 2” deep

   
Q:  Do you also sell domestic bagged rock?
A:  No. However, we sell domestic river rock and other crushed rock by the semi-load; between 18 – 25 tons per load.
   
Q:  How much rock would I need to cover area of about 20 feet by 30 feet?
A: 

Average: 1 c.y. covers 100 s.f. @ 2” deep

Exp: Area = Length (20ft) x Width (30ft)
Area = 600 s.f. You will need: 600 ÷ 100 = 6 cu. yds.
