    i went and measured for accent stones but im not sure how thick to spread them. There is already stones down these are just to spruce things up and make it look nice.

    Does anybody in the CT area know how muck a yard of stones would cost??


    Thanks

    they are being spread around the foundation of a house. i was just wondering how thick i should spread it because i cant determine how much i need without the depth. I was thinking 2 inches ??

    Are you using the same stone thats there? Or topcoating with different? I have had great luck using crushed brick for the foundations.
