    I have a customer who wants me to install river rock with weed mat for approx. 1500 sq. ft.of landscaping. Just wondering if there was an easy formula for figuring the amount needed for an inch thick application? I was thinking around 18 tons. THANKS!

    Depends on the kind of rock figure 50 to 60 feet per ton. If on semi-flat terrain. Hey if you need that much I might be able to help you on price. Dave (816) 739-8733

    1500 sq feet X (1/12) = 125 ft^3

    125/27= 4.63 cubic yards
