    Lady had a gravel driveway and it has since gone down hill. SHe would like to have it redone with gravel. 2500 square feet of driveway. How much gravel will I need? Figure the depth about 1.5 inches.

    Formula for figuring yards of material:
    Length * Width= Square Feet

    Square Feet / 27= # of Yards at 1 foot (12") thick...

    so: 2500 sq. feet / 27= 93 yards at 1' depth @ 1.5" = 12 yards, plus add on a little extra.. Thats how I figure it anyway.

    16 tons using Asteck's online stone calculator which is close to four seasons quote of 12 yards after converting it to tons.
