    Installing 65 tons of stone around eight buildings. Its a 3/4 inch mississippi and my cost is 25 to 30 a ton w/delivery depending on the specific type. What would you guys bid this for ? Is 65 a ton too cheap? Just comparing.

    Thanks everyone..

    65 a ton is too cheap for me, I would be around 6400. without fabric or any prep work.

    we normally charge $100.00 per ton for install only, fabric is extra and hard to access areas are extra too. when we place fabric we buy from shaw fabrics (shawfabrics.com) best stuff ever

    Well I would do it for around $85.00 installed with black 4 mil plastic, personally I only use weed mat for inside retaining walls. you are looking at 2 days work to 2.5 days easy money! It will take a little muscle.:weightlifter:
