    I have a rock job which is going to cover about 200 sq ft. How much rock do I need in terms of yards and bags so I can compare the two. Thanks!

    I don't know what type of stone you are using but on average 1/4 inch stone to 1 inch crushed stone generally will cover 100 sq feet per ton 2 inches deep. that is a general idea don't use that quote to make a decision. their are many stone calculators on the web.

    use this to calculate the total Cubic Yards of product you need. Yes it is for conctrete but the calculations are the same for rock.

    Then you will have to compare the bags to the cubic yards on your own. There are 9 cubic feet in one cubic yard. See how many feet are in each bag.
