- 1 yard covers a 160 square foot area to a 2″ depth
For aggregates or pebbles sold by weight:
- 1 ton covers 120 square feet to a 2″ depth
- 100 pounds covers 6 SF at 2″ depth (or 12 SF at a 1″ depth)
For flagstone patios and walkways made of 2″ thick stone (for sand-set):
- 1 ton covers 80-90 square feet
