asked in category: General Last Updated: 28th March, 2020# How many square feet does a yard of DG cover?

**cubic yard**of material can be spread to

**cover**100

**square feet**(10×10 foot area) at 3 inches of depth.

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?

If you **want to cover an area** with **gravel**, 1 to 2 inches **should** be sufficient depending on the size of the **gravel**. If you are using 3/4" inch **gravel** or larger figure on at least 2 inches in depth to get good coverage.
