120 Sq. Ft. Per Pallet (540 pieces) [it takes 4.5 pavers to make 1 Sq.
Likewise, people ask, how do I calculate how many pavers I need?
How to Calculate Brick Pavers for a Patio
- Measure the size of the top of the chosen style of paver.
- Divide a square foot, or 144 inches, by the area the paver will cover.
- Measure the area planned for the patio.
- Multiply the number of pavers needed to cover one square foot of patio by the number of square feet of the patio.
How many bricks do I need per square foot?
Calculating the Number of Bricks Needed. A wall built with a standard modular brick will require 7 bricks per square foot to complete the project.
Pavers that are 1 inch thick weigh about 11 lbs. per square foot, according to Tile Tech Pavers, and 2-inch-thick pavers weigh twice that, or about 22 lbs. each.
|Pavers per square metre – 76mm||38|
|Paver Weight – 70mm||approx 3.8kg|
|Paver Dimensions||230mm x 114mm|
|50mm Pavers per pallet||650|
|Pallet weight||approx 1.7 ton|
Patio Stone is palletized lying down. The average thickness variance on a pallet is 1" to 3" and an average pallet weighs about 4,000 pounds. The approximate coverage per ton is 70 - 140 sq. ft. Flagstone pieces range approximately 1 - 4 sq. ft. in size.
Flagstone Prices. The national average cost of flagstone is $15 to $20 per square foot. This price includes the base material, mortar and labor. The average cost for the stone alone runs along $2 to $3 per square foot.
The average thickness variance on a pallet is 1" to 3" and an average pallet weighs about 4,000 pounds. The approximate coverage per ton is 70 - 140 sq. ft. Flagstone pieces range approximately 1 - 4 sq. ft. in size.
Flagstone can be laid over concrete, so you will not have to tear out your old patio. It can also be laid over a sand bed or directly on the bare ground. First, work on the flagstones that will cover your existing concrete patio.
|One Ton of Rock Covers:||One Cubic Yard of Soil or Wood Mulch Covers:|
|240 square feet||1” deep||300 square feet|
|120 square feet||2” deep||150 square feet|
|80 square feet||3” deep||100 square feet|
Sand, Gravel and Dirt
- LENGTH X WIDTH = SQUARE FT. Example: 10 x 10 = 100 Sq. Ft.
- SQUARE FT. X DEPTH = CUBIC FT. Example: 100 x .5 (OR 6 INCHES) = 50 Cubic Ft.
- CUBIC FT. DIVIDED BY 27 = CUBIC YARDS.
- CUBIC YARDS X 1.35 = TONS. Example: 1.852 Cubic Yards x 1.35 = 2.501 Tons.
- Compacted Tons. 2.501 X 1.33 = 3.327 Tons.
1 Ton of Sand will cover between 80 to 100 square feet at a 2 inch depth approximately. 1 Cubic Yard of Gravel can weigh between 2,400 to 2,900 lbs. or up to one and a half tons approximately. 1 Ton of Gravel will cover between 80 to 120 square feet at a 2 inch depth approximately.

To measure the driveway in cubic feet, multiply the length by width by depth. For cubic yards, divide the total cubic feet by 27. Because one cubic yard of gravel is equal to 1.13 tons, you can multiply your total cubic yards by 1.13 to convert this measurement to tons.
The general range for a cubic yard of plain pea gravel is about $30 to $35, and a ton will cost about $40 to $45. For a colored variety, expect to add an extra $20 to $50 to those prices. If you buy in bulk, or 10 or more tons at a time, you may be able to get the price down to as low as $15 to $20 per ton.
Convert the dimension in inches to feet (6” ÷ 12” = 0.5') Multiply the three dimensions together to find the number of cubic feet (0.5' x 12' x 12 = 72 cubic feet) Divide the cubic feet by the number of cubic feet in a cubic yard (27) to find the number of cubic yards (72 ÷ 27 = 2.67 cu. yd.).
Crushed stone is quoted at a weight of 2700 pounds per cubic yard. Your stone dealer tells you he has a truck that can deliver 20 tons of stone per load. You need to know who many cubic yards that comes out to.
Dump trucks are rated by how many cubic yards they carry. The average commercial dump truck holds anywhere from 10 to 14 cubic yards of dirt. Find out more about Earth Haulers' hauling equipment.
The cost of topsoil depends a lot on location. In some areas of the US topsoil sells for about $12-$18 a cubic yard, with a delivery charge of $15-$60 depending on amount and distance (and delivery may be free with larger loads of 10 yards or more), for a total cost of $75-$150 for five yards, delivered.
Depending upon your wheelbarrow size (i.e. 2 or 3 cubic feet per wheelbarrow load), it will take 9 to 14 full loads to equal 1 cubic yard. The chart below shows how many full wheelbarrow loads it takes to equal the specified number of cubic yards. A 2 cubic foot wheelbarrow typically has a shallow basin.
A 6x12 tandem axle dump has a 9990# GVWR, 24” sides, and an estimated payload of 7390#. Given that 6 x 12 x 2 = 144 cubic feet, divided by 27 = 5.33 cubic yards. This means the trailer will hold 5.33 yards of material if loaded even with the sides.
The smallest truck delivers up to 7 cubic yards of lightweight material and weighs up to 14 tons. The medium truck delivers up to 15 cubic yards of lightweight material and weighs up to 24 tons. The larger truck delivers up to 18 cubic yards of lightweight material and weighs up to 27 tons.
