    You will probably find that a contractor can bring you a load a lot cheaper than purchasing the stone by the bag.

    Hi Pauline. I always looked for a local Quarry. They were reasonable and even sometimes gave discounts for paying with cash.

    Check on facebook marketplace.

    Contact a rock quarry that produces the type of rock you want. They can usually arrange shipping. If you need a lot, that would be the most economical solution.

  • Quarry, landscape supply (You purchase by the "scoop" or ton). Flip through the yellow pages or just Google to find out what is in your area. Mine all have "cash" prices which when buying in bulk, makes a difference. Check on delivery cost too. And you must have an area ready for them to dump the rock. You get to install yourself, hope you have a wheelbarrow, or hire out to spread. 2 or 3 or 5 different rock sizes and colors add interest. Google and look at rock yard designs, you will be blown away.

    Depending on the type of rock, depth and sq yardage of the coverage, yes, even the cost of rock can add up. Be sure to budget for delivery and installation as well.
