    Typically the rule of thumb is double your cost per yard installed.

    I ordered 130 yards this year getting a price break and actually passed that on to customers and needless to say, that might not be enough this year.

    thats 17.6 yards but go with 18 yards. 18 yards at 50 a yard is $900
