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.

Landscape Stone:

Dry stack will cover approximately 1′ high 15-20 linear foot long per ton.  

Edging Stone:  4″ thick will cover approximately 65 linear foot per ton.  8″ thick will cover approximately 120 linear foot per ton.

Flagstone 1″-1.5″ thick will cover approximately 100-130 square foot per ton.  1.5″-2: thick will cover approximately 90-110 square foot per ton.  Arkansas Fieldstone will cover approximately 80-100 square foot per pallet.

Coverage depends on application, compaction and size.
