Answer: 
This is crushed rock and is very sharp. Best used as a filler or in a French Trench / drainage application. Or in cement to act as an aggregate (bonding agent). When I lived in the mountains we had a dirt road going down to the site and I had 5 ton skip-loader drop spread down the road to: act as a deterrent for erosion and traction to drive on.

Typically at the Home Depot's near me, they have 2 options and it costs about $27. For that they'll dump the 1000 lbs into the back of our truck. The alternative method requires a second trip to the store, plus an extra $15 fee called the pallet fee.

The alternative method requires a second trip to the store, plus an extra $15 fee called the pallet fee. They will load the whole bag into the truck, then when we are done using shovels to remove all the gravel- we bring back the empty bag to the store and get the $15 deposit back. Using 22 bags at 50lbs would be easier, probably, however it would also cost you (assuming your $4 price per bag) $88. To me, I'll take the bag in the truck over spending all of that extra money. The easiest way to remove it would be taking shovels, I'd assume spade instead of flat, and manually dumping the rock out onto a wheel barrow- the cost of which might still be saved over spending the $88 for the bags of rock.

Answer: 
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot, Jaxon. 3/4" is considered to be a bit too big to be used as a paver base, it does not compact as well as smaller gravel. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

Anyone that gets this, and does it the way I did, will have a REALLY easy time, because the bag has a chute on the bottom that, once untied and unfolded, streams the rock out in a fairly controlled manner. There are a couple of caveats, though: 1 - You will need a GOOD pickup truck to carry this home. I wanted to make sure they loaded it just BARELY inside the tailgate, so it's easier to get out when I got home. (The loaders at my local Home Depot, store #281, Stolie and Patrick did a GREAT job of this. Thanks, fellas!) 2 - When you get this home, you will either need a crane, or a tractor with a front loader (or a fork lift attachment) to get the whole bag out - otherwise, you'll be doing a LOT of shoveling. (Hey, it's a LOT of rock!) Here's how I got mine out, and moved over the area I wanted to spread my rock: I slid a 4x4 fence post through the four 'handles' of the bag, from left to right. (MAKING SURE to slide it through ALL FOUR handles, as the instructions on the bag state.) Then, I used a towing chain on each side of the bag handles - I wrapped it around the bucket of my tractor, and around the fence post, and secured it with the hooks. (I made sure to place the chains as close to the handles as possible, about two to three feet apart, (not on the ends of the post) - and I made sure to use chains that are rated for this kind of weight. Safety first. I lifted the rock SLOWLY, and GENTLY (so I wouldn't damage my tractor, or truck springs, etc.), just enough to clear the truck bed. I then SLOWLY drove the rock to where I was going to dump it. At a height of about 3 feet, I untied the chute on the underside of the bag, and let the bag empty, while guiding the flow of rock with a bow rake. I WAS VERY CAREFUL NOT TO POSITION MYSELF IN A WAY THAT I'D BE TRAPPED UNDER THE ROCK IF IT WERE TO DROP SUDDENLY! (A word to the wise.) Once I got home, this whole process took about five minutes - very easy if you have the right equipment. If I'd had to shovel it all by hand, I'd say it might have taken 30 to 60 minutes. I'll be getting more rock this way, since it's such an easy process. One thing I didn't ask, and will ask next time I am at Home Depot is this: "Is there a deposit on the bag?" If so, I will bring mine back. The bag itself says it's a one-time-use container, so it they probably don't need to get it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from gravel This is a convenient way to get gravel for medium sized project. The problem is that the color from one bag to the next can vary substantially. Sometimes they have mixed color material and other times its uniform grey. $15 bag deposit is a good option, or they can dump it in your truck. Also check stock in your store, some don't carry these bags... El Cajon CA, for instance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price and easy pick up Made a 18' x 22' pad for pre made garage I just bought. Being able to get the sand and gravel in large totes then dumped into my truck made my life a little easier. Gravel size and color was very consistent and once in the truck just backed up to pad and shoveled out. The 20" vibrating plate I rented was great as well, like new.
