In respect to this, how many square feet does a ton of decomposed granite cover?

One pallet of decomposed granite weighs 3,000 pounds or 1.5 tons. One ton covers 70 square feet, 3 inches deep. One bag covers 4 square feet, 3 inches deep.

Additionally, how many square feet will 1.5 cubic feet cover? Coverage Chart- Bagged Material (2 Cubic Foot Bags)

Depth One 2 Cubic Foot Bag Covers
9” 2.7 sq feet
10” 2.4 sq feet
11” 2.2 sq feet
12'' 2 sq feet

Keeping this in view, how do I calculate how much decomposed granite I need?

Multiply the length, width and depth measurements in feet together to find the cubic feet of decomposed granite you need. For instance, if you have a 10-foot-long path that is 1 foot wide and 0.1667 feet deep, you would need 10 X 1 X 0.1667 = 1.667 cubic feet.

How many yards of gravel do I need to cover an area?
