Road Fabric

Road Fabric is a permeable woven geotextile that allows water on the surface to flow through the gravel to the soil beneath but is strong enough to reduce rutting and restrict subgrade soil particles from working up into the gravel surface (pumping).


A woven slit film geotextile, resistant to ultraviolet degradation and to biological and chemical environments normally found in soils. We carry 12.5’X432′ rolls AND 6.25’X216′ rolls

$350 per 12.5′ x 432′ roll
$150 per 6.25′ x 216′ roll


Calculating Material


1,728 cubic inches = 1 cubic foot
27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard
7.5 cubic yards = 1 unit
One 5 gallon bucket = 0.67 cubic foot


144 square inches = 1 square foot
9 square feet = 1 square yard
43,560 square feet = 1 acre

How much area will a cubic yard cover at a given depth?

At 1/2″ deep, 640 square feet
At 1″ deep, 324 square feet
At 2″ deep, 162 square feet
At 3″ deep, 108 square feet
At 4″ deep, 81 square feet
At 6″ deep, 54 square feet
At 12″ deep, 27 square feet
