Chapel Hill Gravel, also known as Chapel Hill grit, is a grit type of gravel. It typically has an orange coloring and the size ranges from a gritty dust up to ¾ inch when broken up.
This gravel tends to have larger clumps that can be broken up as needed. This material packs down well so when calculating depth, you should factor in enough to allow for compaction.
How much is one cubic yard?
Coverage: One cubic yard of Chapel Hill Gravel covers an area 9 x 12 three inches deep.
Weight: 1 cubic yard of Chapel Hill Gravel weighs approximately 2,200-2,300 pounds. Most standard pick-up trucks (ex. F150) or single axle 5x8 trailer can hold 1 yard because of the weight.
When using chapel hill gravel for a walkway or pathway, it is recommended you start out with 5 inches of depth. After compaction, there should be approximately 3 inches of depth.
