    3/4" -1 1/2" wash stone is easy to shovel even rake out to some extent. 3" stone is such a pain and time consuming it needs to be 2 or 3 times the cost you would do for something you could shovel.

    That is about as much as I can say because I pass on those jobs 100 percent of the time. 2 1/2" limestone for a regular client was the last pain of a job I did.

    I don't see 3" river rock?

    $10 a ton is mighty cheap. We're $110 per yard here.

    Why remove the bark?

    well i was off a little but i remember the bigger gravel there. i charge 110 per yard, same as my mulch. it is a lot more work and i make more trips etc.etc.etc and that mulch price is scoops not bags
