When I ask for white or brown gravel will all the rocks be the same color?

No. Brown gravel means the predominant color is brown but may contain some white or gray stones. The same is true with white gravel. The predominant color is white but may contain some gray and brown stones. Since this is a natural product sometimes our white gravel will have a tan to beige tint and our brown gravel could be a buff to dark tan color.

Do you have bagged material?

How many cubic yards in 1 ton of gravel?

Since our gravel weighs approximately 100 lbs per cubic foot the calculation is 2000/100 = 20 cubic feet per ton. There are 27 cubic feet in 1 cubic yard so 20/27 = 0.74 cubic yards per ton. If you divide the inverse, 27/20, you get approximately 1.35 tons per cubic yard. (Use our Gravel / Sand Calculator in the upper right side of the page to calculate the amount of material you need).
