Material Coverage and Weight

Material and Coverage:

All ground cover products (mulch, decorative gravel, lava rock) are sold by quantity not weight, 1 cubic yard (one leveled scoop on loader) will cover an area of 81 square feet or 8' x 10'x 4"deep. Topsoil, base rock, clay fill materials when compacted will lose approximately 17% volume. This should be considered when calculating amounts needed.

Palletized Stone:

Weight=1 Ton+/- 2" thick will cover approximately 110 square feet of area for patios, walkways etc. Dry stack walls or borders 18' to 20' linear feet 1'high x 1' wide.
