I do not believe Jonnyd could have been referring to Mexican beach pebbles. I researched for a long time before committing to buy them. The price you payed (.52 cents per pound) is the going rate for them. I was able to get them a the contractors price and payed .46 cents a pound.

Great job on the patio (and stone choice ;)),, It all looks great..
Yeah I think what he got was nicer that what I got, now that I look closer. I have other colors in mine besides gray. I also like his better :)

This is the price sheet

Either way those are great prices. Local price here for clean stone is $70+ a yard (though i am no9t sure what a ton equates to for volume of crushed stone)

Aprrox 1.3 tons per cu yd for crushed stone. $70.00 per yd sounds very steep. I certainly hope that is delivered.

No- this was free delivery from HD. The $150 fee was for the 10 yards of crushed stone from my mason supply yard.

Ironic since this came from FL and the crushed stone came from the same town.

I paid about the same per yard for clean crushed stone. I picked it up in the 1 yard sacks as I needed it. I reused the sack and pallet and saved $16 each time. Shoveling it isn't fun. A 5 gallon bucket to works well for scooping it out of sack or wheelbarrow and dispensing it, much quicker than shoveling.
