    I guess the average size would be 4-6'' long by 4'' high by 3''-4'' wide?? I'm playing the guessing game again. I need to go the the yard and measure some stones! How many sq. ft. per ton for single layer river rock creek bed would you guys estimate?

    i usually figure stream beds like medium stack rock and thats about 40 sq. ft a ton. But dont take it from me just finished a patio today and had to scramble to find about 800 more pounds of flag luckly i had some left over from the last job. At least it was already paid for.
