Grey

what is the square feet of 20x8×2?

Asked by nana April 23, 2021

Answer

These measurements would give you cubic feet. If you are trying to fill that space you would need 1 yard of material which would be three of the MSU bags.

Does this rock need to be washed before use in a french drain? Is it generally clear of fines?

This material is a 3/4 crushed gravel and sold as a building aggregate. If you are looking for something uniform in size or with more of a decorative appearance I would suggest ordering a specific gravel for your project

Is there a free drop at site and if not how much for each drop

Delivery is not free. Home Depot charges $79 in my area for a truck Delivery from a regional provider. If you are ordering a lot of gravel it is worth it.

How much does it cost? Can't find a price!

It’s been $25/bag fork lift loaded into my trailer. Online I’ve seen mention of a $15 bag deposit, but I’ve never been charged for a deposit on the 8 bags I’ve bought 2019 thru 2021

1100 square feet of back yard how much would I need

Asked by Paul December 3, 2020

Answers

If you were looking for a 4” layer of gravel each bag would be good for 27 sq.ft., as there are 9 cu.ft. per bag. A 3” layer would be 36 sq.ft. And a 2” layer would be 54 sq.ft. Therefore, as an example, 1100 sq.ft. at 3” would require 31 bags, or 10 cu.yds ($750) When I recently extended a parking area at my house I started with 2” of gravel with fines as the sandy fines that are mixed in with the rock compact really well, then I added this gravel from HD that comes without fines as it looks better.

Is this available in New England?

Perfect for landscaping!
Bought this to do some drought friendly landscaping, arrived around 2pm on the sheduled delivery day. Looks just like the photos online, the driver asked where to leave it and was super polite. Would highly recommend!

I used this gravel around concrete steps stones and it looks really modern. The gravel pieces are pretty uniform around 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch, and delivery was smooth and driver was friendly and placed the bags exactly where I wanted them. For this price, you can't beat how good it looks. When you need a large quantity like I did, it can be hundreds of dollars of savings.

Be aware that rock can be different colors and sizes
I bought 8 bags of this product for a shed pad I was building. Out of the 8 bags, 2 bags were great. The rock was clean and almost entirely 3/4". The other 6 bags had dirty rock that was a mix of 3/4" and smaller rock down to 1/8". You would think that for a single order, the delivery would consist of the same rock. Now I did not really care about the appearance of the rock since most of the pad is going to be covered by the shed but I really need the rock to be consistently 3/4" to make the gravel lock together properly. I went to the store to see if they could replace the 6 bags and they said they could not because I had it delivered. I am thinking of building a sifter to get rid of the small rock. See the picture below. The clean rock is on the left. The dirty rock is in the middle. The small rock is on the right. I felt that the description of the item on the website is misleading. It says it can be used for landscaping. I would not use the rock for landscaping since you might get the dirty rock and it would look terrible in landscaping. That being said, on the plus side, the price is good given the amount of rock. And it is convenient that the rock is delivered in bags. It avoids having a big pile of rock on the driveway. I was able to shovel the rock from the bag into a wheelbarrow.

Response from MSU Prodcut ExpertNov 19, 2020
This is typically used as a building aggregate and is a 3/4" minus so there are smaller sizes throughout the product. The material is a 3/4 Crushed gravel and it sounds like you wanted a 3/4" Gravel which is more universal in size. Seems a bit odd as compaction is much better with smaller pebbles and fines in the material. The best would be to use a 3/4" Base for the best compaction rate. The description states that it can be used as a ground cover in landscaping, which it can and has been used in the past. Specifically for driveway's. It is unfortunate that it did not fit your specific needs for your project. Main

Did exactly what it’s supposed to do, just wish it was closer to 3/4” to lock into better.
