How do you buy stone?
We sell stone by weight.  Bulk materials in our bins, gravels, sands, mulches, etc., are sold by the cubic yard and the minimum is a 1/4 of a yard or 1/2 a bucket full.

Can I come with a truck and/or trailer to pick up the material myself?
You bet!  We will be glad to load as much as your truck or trailer can handle, don’t forget a tarp.  Also, people will bring whatever vehicle they have and load  a small amount of flagstone or different materials in the car, van, suv.

How much mulch or decorative rock do I need?
Our general rule of thumb is one yard of rock will cover approximately 120 square feet at a depth of 2 inches, but it can vary. Just ask and we’ll help you calculate.

How much rock is on a pallet?
It varies. Usually a full pallet is anywhere from 1.5 tons to 2 tons.

How much flagstone do I need?
This will depend on the thickness of the stone desired.  You can use about 100 square feet of coverage per ton (2,000 pounds) of material.  There are many variables and we would be glad to help you with these calculations.

Do I have to purchase a whole pallet?
No, we have pallets that are open and available for per pound purchase.   You just take off what you need, we weight it and it is priced per pound.

Can we match existing stone?
We will do our best to help you match existing stone.  Each layer in a quarry produces different colors, however we can usually get you close.  Please bring a sample of your current rock, if possible..
