EXAMPLE: You have an area next to your house that you would like to landscape with Washed Stone. That area is 4'-0" wide and 46'-0" long. You estimate that you would like it to be about 4" deep. Your formula would look like:​

4 x 46 x .3333 = 61.2761.27 divided by 27 = 2.27 rounded up to the nearest half yard would be 2.5.

You would order or pick up 2 1/2 Cubic Yards of Washed Stone.

###### If one of your dimensions happens to be in inches the following table will show you the decimal equivalent to inches.

​1 inch = .083 / 2 inches = .167 / 3 inches = .25 /

4 inches = .333 / 5 inches = .4167 / 6 inches = .5 /

7 inches = .583 / 8 inches = .667 / 9 inches = .75 /

​10 inches = .8333 / 11 inches = .9167 /

​12 inches = 1.0  # No job is too big

​or too small!

HOW MUCH MATERIAL DO I NEED?

​How much stone/road gravel/granite do I need? Well, the easiest way to go about this is by giving us a call! We're always happy to give you quick, accurate estimate or...You can use the following formula for squares and rectangles. Length x Width x Height = Cubic Feet and to find the yardage. Divide your Cubic Feet by 27 (the amount of cubic feet in a cubic yard) and this will give you the amount of material you'll need. See example below. One thing to consider when you are ordering gravel granite or topsoil is that you lose some volume due to compaction. For example, if you want your driveway to be 6" thick after compaction with a roller or machine you should add approximately 30% to you order's volume. Stone will not compact, so the measurements are true.

# ​WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL TO USE FOR MY DRIVEWAY?

CAN THE TRUCK SPREAD THE GRAVEL/GRANITE IN MY DRIVEWAY?

Yes, our trucks can spread material on your driveway, but low hanging tree branches, eaves or electrical/phone wires may impede our trucks. You can count on doing some additional spreading by hand once the truck places the gravel.

EXAMPLE: You just purchased an above ground swimming pool and the manufacturer recommends that it be set upon a base of sand free from stones. You will need to lay down a pad of Mason Sand.  Your swimming pool is 36 feet across and you estimate that you would like the pad to be about 5" deep. You would probably want the pad to extend a little beyond the edge of the pool so we are going to figure for a pad 39'-0" across. Your formula would look like:

39÷2 = 19.5 the Radius (19'-6" converted into a decimal)19.5 x 19.5 = 380.25 the Radius Squared

380.25 x .4167 (the Height) = 158.45

158.45 x 3.14 = 497.53 (Cubic Feet)

497.53 divided by 27 =18.43 rounded up to the nearest yard would be 19.

You would order 19 Cubic Yards of Mason Sand.

Mon.-Fri. ​7:00 am - 4:30 pm `You would take the Radius (which is measured from the outside perimeter of the circle to the center) and square it (multiply it by itself).Then Multiply the Squared Radius by the Height/depth (don't forget to convert your measurement into a decimal if your measurements are in inches).Take that calculation and Multiply it by 3.14 (p).​Divide your results by 27 and you will have the quantity of cubic yards you'll need.`
