Material Coverage and Weight

Material and Coverage:

Gravel, Mulch, Soil, Sand:  All ground cover products are sold by quantity not weight, 1 cubic yard (one level scoop on loader) will cover an area of 160 sq feet (10’x16′) at 2″ deep. Topsoil, base rock, sand and clay fill materials when compacted will lose approximately 17% volume. This should be considered when calculating amounts needed.  These products can also be purchesd by 1/2 yards &  5-gallon bucket (customer provides bucket).

Cobbles:  Sold by pallet, super sack and pound.  Pallets and Super Sacks are approximately 1.5 ton.  1″-2″ cobbles will cover approximately 160 sq feet at 2″ deep.  2″ – 4″ cobbles will cover approximately 60-80 sq foot  per ton.  4″ – 8″ cobbles will cover approximately 40-60 sq foot per ton.  These products can also be purchased by 5-gallon bucket (Customer provides bucket)
