Golden Queen Granite Gravel Rock 3/4" - 1/2" - Per 1 Yard SuperEarth-Sack
1 yard is approximately 3000 pounds.
Most likely the strongest most richly colored golden colored crushed granite gravel quarried in California. Filled with bold gold colored quartz contrasting with a lot of black feldspar, this rock sparkles in the sunshine to show off the color qualities of this rich natural granite / quartz material. Makes for an excellent pathway, driveway and parking area and ground cover material in landscapes. This is the gold granite rock used from Ventura County through the Northern California Wine Country. Some material yards in the Bay Area deceptively sell this as "Desert Gold" others call it California Gold Rock or Handley Gold Rock.

Product Specifications and Uses
This product is effectively used as a groundcover in planter-beds, for a general landscape ground cover, and in utility areas

One Ton of Decomposed Granite, Decorative Gravel, or Rock Covers:
240 square feet. 1" deep. This is too shallow.
120 square feet. 2" deep. Thins out over a short amount of time.
100 square feet. 2-1/2" deep. Good coverage.
90 square feet. 3" deep. Ideal long term coverage.
60 square feet. 4" deep. Best for materials of 2" or larger.

One Square Yard of Decomposed Granite, Decorative Gravel, or Rock Covers:
300 square feet. 1" deep. This is too shallow.
150 square feet - 2" deep. Thins out over a short amount of time.
125 square feet - 2-1/2" deep. Very good coverage.
100 square feet - 3" deep. Ideal long term coverage.
75 square feet - 4" deep. Best for materials of 2" or larger.

The square foot coverage per ton of gravel will vary slightly with the surface and designs of the project, waste, etc. will affect area coverage. The information is based on average ton and cubic yard amounts. This decorative building stone has naturally occurring colors and shade variations. These are what give this stone the natural beauty and uniqueness that causes its appeal. Color tones change can sometimes occur with aging or maintenance practices of the location it is installed at therefore exact matching of existing stone may not always occur. During processing or transportation dust will adhere to the rocks and change its appearance on arrival but we guarantee all stones to be true to the specific brand name, type and size ordered or complete exchange including transportation costs will be made.

After installation is completed the rock should be rinsed off to show the natural beauty and character.

Material Size Choices
The use of decorative rock as a landscape ground cover or rock mulch to save water needs to be attractive to be effective. We believe that in most residential landscape and garden installation circumstances this is best done with 3/8" screened rock and not 3/4" screened rock. For pathways and drive areas where foot traffic is expected 3/8" rock materials are best. 3/4" rock works great in very large planter beds and is an important design element in large residential and commercial landscapes. For more creative rock work designs consider using various sizes of rock ruble from 1 through 12 inches.
