What price range per yard do you guys have for installing 1" stone using shovels and wheelbarrows. I'm looking at 11 yards a distance of 100 ft flat ground. How long would this take for two guys.

Is there any preparation? Are you going to use some king of a weed barrier?
I will normally charge $80.00 a yard installed for river cobble. I don't know if that's close to what you are using, but I hope it helps.:cool:

make sure you use some good underlayment ....otherwise the stone will settle after a while and go down in the soil....you will then have an extremely unhappy customer.

with barrier, stone , labor....ballpark ...somewhere around $1100...maybe a little more but not less...picking stone off the ground is a major pain in the neck...been there done that too many times..if you can push it off a truck into wheelbarrow its a little easier. Next time I do more than 10 yards there will be a Dingo on the job site
