Calculators & formulas to help you get what you need.
Here are some simple calculators to determine how much product you will need. Or if you prefer, simply contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
Square & Rectangular Spaces
- A ton of most loose stone products cover roughly 80 sq.ft., 3" deep.
- A yard of soil covers 100 sq.ft., 3" deep.
- Always figure compaction for areas over 6" deep. Compaction for sand and soil is about 15 to 20%. On most products a ton is equal to 75% of a cubic yard.
For other shapes or assistance, please fax, e-mail or bring a drawing to one of our locations.
Generally speaking, we find the following coverages to be a good rule of thumb when determining how much material you need. However rock, stone and other products are natural, and vary in size - thus your actual coverage may vary.
|150 lbs||per Cubic feet|
|4", 6", 8" & 10.5"||35-40 Square feet per ton|
|4"||100 Linear feet per ton|
|6"||80 Linear feet per ton|
|10"||40 Linear feet per ton|
|3" Deep||100 Square feet per ton|
|3" Deep||100 Square feet per yard|
|3" Deep||108 Square feet per yard|
|3" Deep||80 Square feet per ton|
|4" Deep||60 Square feet per ton|
|8" Deep||30 Square feet per ton|
|Extra Thin||120 Square feet per ton|
|Thin||100 Square feet per ton|
|Thick||80 Square feet per ton|
