Cost of Pea Gravel


By ProMatcher Staff



Pea Gravel Cost Checklist

The average cost of pea gravel is $39.85 per ton (local delivery included). Pea gravel can be used for a number of different outdoor projects. It can be used to create paths, parking lots, walkways, patios, and driveways. Pea gravel prices will depend on several important factors. Use the checklist below to get a better idea of how much your project should cost.

1. Where do you live? Your geographic location may have a significant impact on the cost of pea gravel. Material prices can vary greatly throughout the country. Additionally, certain varieties of gravel may not be available in your region. If it needs to be trucked in from elsewhere, costs will rise.

2. How much gravel do you need? Bulk gravel deliveries are typically priced by the ton. Your contractor can help you determine the amount of material you need based on the square footage of area you need to cover. Many companies may have a minimum order of 3-5 tons for bulk orders. If you have a very large project, you may be able to negotiate a lower rate per ton. For small projects, it may be easier to purchase bagged gravel from the local home improvement store or gardening center.

3. What type of pea gravel would you like? Pea gravel comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. A plain gray pea gravel is typically the most affordable option. You should expect to pay a premium for decorative, exotic, and multi-colored gravels.

4. Do you need help spreading the gravel? The cost of gravel delivery rarely includes spreading services. If you need help creating a driveway or parking lot, this will be an additional expensive. Labor rates in your local area will have a large impact on the cost. As a general rule, you should expect to pay higher prices for labor if you live in a major metropolitan area.

5. How far does the gravel need to be delivered? In many cases, local delivery is included in the cost of the gravel. However, if you live in a remote area or outside of the company’s normal delivery range, you should expect the cost of your gravel project to increase. Gravel is heavy and delivery charges can add up!
