A Ton = 2,000 lbs. and a yard of 1" River Walk is approx. 2,500 lbs...so to answer your question...there is no such conversion available. A yard of 1" River Rock is more than a Ton, or you could just say..a little more than 1 yard. Hope that helps.

I figure a yard is 1.25 tons. I figure a ton of river rock 6"-9" covers 50-60 sqft. I use that figure for fake rivers or rip rap. Here, most people have converted to tons, and I tell people that a ton of 3/8 rock covers 175sqft, 1/2" covers 150sqft., 3/4" covers 110sqft. I take the total sqft and divide by the rock they want. Oh, that is for 2" depth. When I do the install I add a ton or two to be safe.
