How many wheelbarrows in a cubic yard:
Depending on your wheelbarrow size it takes 9 to 14 full loads to equal 1 cubicyard. Use the chart below to calculate how many full wheelbarrow loads in a specific number of cubic yards. A 2 cubic foot wheelbarrow has a shallow basin. A 3 cubic foot wheelbarrow is full sized and is the most common wheelbarrow. There are 18 Cubic yards in a typical dumptruck load of material Cubic Yards  2 Cubic Foot Wheelbarrow Loads  3 Cubic Foot Sized Wheelbarrow Loads  1  14  9  2  27  18  3  41  27  4  54  36  5  68  45  6  81  54  7  95  63  8  108  72  9  122  81  10  135  90 

Flagstone Calculator:
For a 2400 square foot Patio or Driveway
1 ton covers approximately 100 s.f. @ ¾” to 1 ½” thick.
16 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea Exp: 16 x 1.5 x 100 = 2,400 s.f.
24 pallets @ 1.0 tons/2,000 lbs ea
Average: 1 ton covers approximately 90 s.f. @ 1 ½” to 2” thick.
13 pallets @ 2.0 tons/4,000 lbs ea
Exp: 13 x 2.0 x 90 = 2,430 s.f.
18 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea
27 pallets @ 1.0 tons/2,000 lbs ea
Thin Veneer Calculator:
For a 2,400 square foot Patio or Driveway
1 ton covers approximately 180 s.f. @ ½” to1” thick.
9 pallets @ 1.5 tons/3,000 lbs ea Exp: 9 x 1.5 x 180 = 2,430 s.f.
Pebbles / Rock Calculator:
Beach Pebbles, River Rock and River Flats are all distributed in 40 lb. bags.
1 bag of Beach Pebbles, River Rock and River Flats covers approximately 3 s.f. @ 2 stones deep (1” to 1 ¼” deep).
The bigger to pebble/rock; the smaller the coverage and vice versa  the smaller the pebble/rock; the larger the coverage.
This applies to stone, 2” to 2 ½” in diameter, and applies to our beach pebbles & river rock & flats.
One 40 lb. bag of Beach Pebbles, 3 ¼”to 3 ¾”, yields 2 ½ s.f. @ 2 stones deep (2” deep)
One 40 lb. bag of Mini Confetti or Chattahoochee, 1/8” to ½”, yields 4 s.f. @ 1 ½” to 2” deep
How much rock would I need to cover area of about 20 feet by 30 feet?
A: Average: 1 cubic yard covers 100 s.f. @ 2” deep
Area = Length (20ft) x Width (30ft)
Area = 600 square feet
You will need: 600 ÷ 100 = 6 cubic yards

Just how much is 1 cubic yard? Well ... 1 cubic yard is three feet by three feet by three feet ( 3 x 3 x 3) or 27 cubic feet.
How much does it weigh? Well, one cubic yard weighs between 2000 and 2800 pounds
depending on any number of factors (such as water content). But lets call it down the
middle and say 2400 pounds per cubic yard.
What does 5 cubic yards of dirt look like?

How much weight is a cubic yard of top soil? .... Approximately 1.3 tons ( WOW)
How many Wheelbarrow loads to (1) one Truckload of material?
A truckload is approximately 18 cubic yards or 20 tons ....and there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.
So a truckload is 27 x 18 = 486 cubic feet.
A large or contractor size wheelbarrow holds about 5 cubic feet while
homeowner sizes hold about 2  3 cubic feet.
Sooooooooooooooooo.....
an average for the Homeowner wheelbarrow is 486 / 2.5 = 194 trips with the wheelbarrow!!!!!!
SOD ...
Most pallets of sod cover about 400 Square Feet of surface.
The length times the width divided by 400 = # of Pallets.
So if you have an area 20' x 30' ....
20 x 30 = 600 sq ft
600 divided by 400 = 1.5 one and a half pallets of sod.
