When to Use Small Crushed Stone
Small crushed stone is often used as a top dressing for construction and decorative landscaping.
When to Use Medium Crushed Stone
Medium-sized stones are used on top of large stones to create a stable base layer for the surface material. Medium-sized stones are often used in landscaping to create a decorative feature.
When to Use Large Crushed Stone
Large crushed stone is the better choice for sub-base projects like roads, airports, and parking foundations. Using large crushed stone allows you to build a reliable base for your project.
When to Use Mixed Crush Stone
A mix of different smaller sized stone and stone dust is most often used in building roads, driveways, and walking trails.
How Do I Know How Much Stone to Buy?
Calculating how much stone you need is a relatively simple calculation. First, measure the size of the project in terms of length, width, and depth. Use feet as the unit of measure – 3 feet instead of 1 yard. Multiply the length by the width to calculate the area. Next, take the area and multiple by the depth of the layer you need. You have just calculated the amount in cubic feet. To convert this into cubic yards, divide by 27.
