Calculators to help you figure out how much stone you need, based on dimensions.

NOTE: We do not break down pallets, so you will need to find one or more that meet your weight requirements. Allow approximately 10% extra to account for waste from chipping, cutting, etc..

Flagstone / Building Stone Coverages (Per Ton):

1-1/4" Minus = 142 Sq. Ft. +/-

1" to 1-1/2" = 130 Sq. Ft. +/-

1-1/2" to 2-1/2" = 100 Sq. Ft. +/-

2" to 4" = 70 Sq. Ft. +/-

3" to 5" = 50 Sq. Ft. +/-

 Flatwork (Patios, walls, etc.)

  1. Figure out the square footage to be covered
  2. Get the coverage per ton of the product desired
  3. Divide the square footage needed by the coverage per ton

 Example: A patio or wall is 20' long and 8' wide or high and you would like to use Buff Patio flagstone that has a coverage of 110-130 square feet per ton. 


(20' x 8') = 160 square feet
Average coverage is 120 square feet per ton
(160 / 120) = 1.333 tons needed

 Stacked Stone Walls & Waterfalls

  1. Determine the average length, the average height and the average width of the stone in feet
  2. Multiply the length by the width by the height to get the cubic footage
  3. There is about 15 cubic feet in a ton of building stone or flagstone so divide the cubic footage by 15 to determine the quantity of stone needed in tons

 

Example: A 20' long stacked stone wall that is 1' thick and 2' tall 

Length = 20', Height = 2', Width = 1'
(20' x 2' x 1') = 40 cubic feet
(40 / 15) = 2.667 tons of stone needed
