Rockery Rock Information
The following are guidelines only. You will want to keep in mind that every quarry sorts rock differently. Before ordering any large rock you will want to stop by our yard and physically look at the rock to ensure you get materials you can work with.
|Half Man||10 - 50 pounds||8 - 12"|
|One Man||20 - 240 pounds||12 - 18"|
|Two Man||150 - 750 pounds||18 - 30"|
|Three Man||750 - 3500 pounds||24 - 36"|
|Four Man||3500 pounds and up||36" +|
Use the formula below to figure out how much 1 man, 2 man, or 3 man rock is needed for your rock wall.
Length x Height / Yield = Tons Needed
|Half Man||21 SF per ton|
|One Man||15 SF per ton|
|Two Man||12 SF per ton|
|Three Man||9 SF per ton|
The following are general recommendations only and may not be applicable for all sites. Consult a professional regarding your site design to ensure project success.
Half-Man: Used on walls under 16" high. We do not carry this size, though you can hand pick out the smaller pieces from the one man pile.
One-Man: Used for rock walls from 16" to 3'. This is the most popular size.
For 3-foot and higher walls, you should consider using some two-man rock on the bottom of the wall and building up to the one man rock. The taller the wall, the more larger rock you should use. Large rock on the bottom adds stability to the wall.
