with decomposed granite, and according to the online calculators I needed nearly ten yards….so of course I decided to order five (hey, it was already filled with gravel!). I also needed 12 yards of dirt. If I ordered 200 yards we would have no problem using it, but for this project we decided to do 12 and just concentrate on a small (ish) area. So I start calling soil and stone places and guess what? The first quote came to $658! Well crap, that is already way over our $500 budget. Let me tell you a little about myself. I love to haggle. Give me a salesman and I’ll make him sweat and totally enjoy it. Anyway, I picked three soil and stone places and started working them…long story short I got everything – including tax and delivery- for $370. That still seems expensive…after all, its dirt. If you live somewhere else it comes with the house. Nonetheless, I was still pleased with myself. Here it is all piled up.
