Coverage per Yard

 

Square Footage divided by

Square Foot thickness.

 

ALL Decorative Gravel

1” Thick = 324 SQ FT.

2” Thick = 162 SQ FT.

3” Thick = 108 SQ FT.

4” Thick = 81 SQ FT.

5” Thick = 65 SQ FT.

6” Thick = 54 SQ FT.

7” Thick = 46 SQ FT.

8” Thick = 41 SQ FT.

9” Thick = 36 SQ FT.

10” Thick = 32 SQ FT.

11” Thick = 29 SQ FT.

12” Thick = 27 SQ FT.

Natural Stone

Approximate Square Footage & Estimating Guide

 

Veneer

Randon Sizes

4” Deep = 40-45 sq ft / ton                  3”-6” Deep = 35 sq ft / ton

6” Deep = 30-35 sq ft / ton                  3”-5” Deep = 40 sq ft / ton

8” Deep = 20 sq ft / ton                        4”-8” Deep = 30 sq ft / ton

Chunk Stone = 30-40 sq ft / ton

 

Note : Thin veneer varies with thickness

 

Drywall

8” Deep = 20 sq ft / ton

16” Deep = 10 sq ft / ton

 

Note: Most of our drywall is 8” deep from front to back and vary in length and thickness. If its over 8” deep it will cover less square footage.

 

Wallstone & Boulders

4” Deep = 40 sq ft / ton                                   1 cu ft = 160 lbs

8” Deep = 20 sq ft / ton                                   12 cu ft = 1 ton

16” Deep = 10 sq ft / ton                                                              

20” Deep = 5 sq ft / ton

 

Note : These are basic depths of stone, will have to accommodate for depths that vary in between these.

 

Flagstone

 

.5” - .75” = 200+ sq ft / ton                 1.5” – 2” = 80-90 sq ft / ton

 1” -1.5” = 120 sq ft / ton                    2” = 70 sq ft / ton

 1”-1.75” = 100 sq ft / ton                   2”-3” = 60 sq ft / ton

 

Note: Coverage estimates on flagstone are always approximate and will vary with installation technique. All coverages estimates allow for nominal joints between the materials.

To convert yards to tons: Take yard amount multiply by rock weight and divide by 2000 lbs.

Coverage per Ton example:

I have 174 SQFT and I need it 3" thick of

Iowa Rainbow Large.

 

174 divided by 87 = 2 Tons.

Coverage per Yard example:

I have 174 SQFT and I need it 3" thick of

Iowa Rainbow Large.

 

174 divided by 108 = 1.6 Yards

Converting example using amount above:

I need 1.6 Yards of Iowa Rainbow Large but you sell it by the Ton. How many Tons is that?

 

1.6 yards multiplied by 2500 lbs. = 4000 lbs

4000 lbs divided by 2000 lbs = 2 Tons
