Our customers love river rock for this project. Check out our product photos to see one customer’s design on this great product.
This really is a personal preference… #10 limestone, #8 limestone, grass or polymeric sand are popular options.
To do this correctly, you will need two products. First, you will need to apply #10 limestone 2 inches thick as a base. It must be packed in using a tamper. Lay your stone and then lay a minimum of 1 inch red sand to level it. Natural stones are not consistently the same thickness, thus the red sand helps makes it level.
The majority of stone at our lots cover approximately 100 square feet (or linear feet). If you using the stone to outline a flowerbed, etc. you will need to measure your linear feet for the project. A pallet of stone covers 100 feet (if you want to lay 3 stones high, 33 feet will be covered with 1 pallet; 2 stones high, 50 feet).
