Coverage Chart

Material quantity can be determined by computing the square footage of the area being landscaped.

Measure the length of area and multiply by the width of the area to get your square footage.

Length x Width = Square Footage (example 15'x25' = 375')

Divide 375' by 100 = 3.75 tons of material, 2" in depth

Rock
1 ton of rock will cover approximately:

  • 100 sq. ft. 2" deep
  • 80 sq. ft. 3" deep
  • 60 sq. ft. 4" deep
  • 40 sq. ft. 6" deep

Rip Rap
1"-4" rock will cover approximately:

  • 80 sq. ft. per ton

3"-8" rock will cover approximately:

  • 65 - 75 sq. ft. per ton

Figuring Square Footage

Driveway or Pad

Example 1
Standard Driveway or Pad:
15'x25' = 375 square feet

L - Shaped Driveway or Pad

Example 2
This would be done in two sections
18'x40' = 720 square feet
10'x40' = 400 square feet
400' + 720' = 1, 120 square feet

1 Ton = 2,000 LBS
1 Ton = 5-1/2 Level Wheelbarrows
1 Yard = 7 Level Wheelbarrows
1 Cubic Yard = 6-7 Level Wheelbarrows
20 Shovels = 3 Cubic Foot Wheelbarrow
