what else do you sell??

i have a few people wanting me to do small retaining walls and i would love to pass on the cheaper prices!
I sell all kinds of different flagstone, in 1", 1.5", and 2" thicknesses; mainly for use on patios, walkways, so on and so forth. I have it in different earthtone colors, i.e brown, tan, blonde-sandy tan, chocolatey browns, some mixed with orange tones. I also have a pink/red colored flagstone from Colorado, and a blue/grey flagstone from the Oklahoma/Arkansas line. They vary in price from $175 per ton all the way up to $275 per ton. Anything 2" thick will cover roughly 80 square feet per ton, the 1.5" will cover roughly 100-110 square feet per ton, and the 1" will cover roughly 120-130 square feet per ton.

For projects such as edging a flower bed, we have the chopstones. Again, I have it in a variety of colors; in fact all the same colors as what I listed for the flagstones, but including the white (limestone), limestone with rusty color, gray, a tan/champagne color, the creamy brown/tan of the Milsap, some darker earth colors with moss on them, a purple colored one, that is irregular in dimensions, along with a golden brown of the same properties. Also, I have one called Painted Desert Chop, which has purple, green, whitish tan, reddish tan, and orange, all mixed together. As far as price goes, they run from $125 per ton on the low end, to $240 per ton on the high end. Any chopstone 4" thick will cover roughly 40 square feet per ton, with a few exceptions due to density versus the weight of individual pieces. Most 4" tall chopstones will run 120 linear feet per ton, 6" tall will get around 100, and 8" tall will get around 80, again with a few exceptions.

Construction; houses, commercial buildings, etc. Most chopstones are suitable for going up the walls of a house, if you want the more uniform, regular look. If you want a more random, rustic look, we have what we call building stone, or field stone. Basically, it's flagstone, but thick as shit. Around 4" thick. All the same colors as I listed for flag stone, but including the white austin. The fieldstone runs in price from $140 per ton up to $205 per ton, and covers roughly 40 square feet per ton.

Landscaping; almost any stone can be used for landscaping, but what we consider landscaping stone are boulders (big and small, mossy), creek rock (tan earthtones) and Colorado River rock (small, smooth, and multicolored). This stuff can range in price from $150 per ton up to $180 per ton, with 1 item costing up to $335 per ton. Basically, just decoration for your yard. The mossy boulders can be from the size of a baseball or softball, up to a volleyball, then up to the point where it takes two or three people to flip one over. Then, the next step up is the size where equipment is required to move them. The Colorado River Rock runs in size from 2", 2-4", 3-6", and 5-8". The creek rock we don't really have separated by any particular size, but think from fist sized to basketball sized.


We also recently started selling bulk material: Pro Bedding Mix ($40), Hardwood Mulch($30), Top Soil ($25), Granite Sand ($55), 1" and 5/8" Granite ($55),
3/8" Granite ($45), Concrete Sand ($45), Native Pea Gravel ($55), Rocky Mountain River Rock ($200), Native River Rock ($55), Masonry Sand ($25), and Decomposed Granite ($55). All Prices on these materials are by the cubic yard.


Anything else yall wanna know, feel free to ask.

I'm Matt, I answer 9 out of ten phone calls this place gets. We don't do a whole lot of business down in that area, but if we could, that would be awesome.

You may have to set up an account, I'd have to talk to the big boss about it.

Word of warning though; Delivery down around the Grand Prairie area is going to high as shit.

Matt, I'm just bringing this back to the top. I just got a truck again and have been looking to do some yard work. I will give you a call soon if the price for the Milsap is still 205 a ton.
Dude, 8 days later, I just saw this. Hit me up, and tell me who you are if ya call, ask for Matt.

Definitely, the price on the Milsap is still 205 a ton.

I may be able to swing a DFWS discount, I'm gonna talk to the boss tomorrow.

Since I haven't seen a whole lot of numbers thrown out I figured I'd throw mine out. I had quotes by the foot, everything included (concrete, stone, mortar, sprinkler heads moved, etc) and all bids were between $14-15 per foot.

Thanks Matt! The rock looks great and really did a lot for the look of my house. It was great meeting you and getting the hook up. I think my sister and BnL will be paying you a visit some time soon for some flagstone.

Glad you're happy with it! If you need any more, remember we've got plenty of it. It was good meeting you as well.

Give the sister and BIL a card, put DFWS on the back, and I'll do what I can for them.

Rate keeps varying according to the kind of stone you want to use. It is always a better idea to take suggestion from your local masonry contractor. Most of them provide you with a free quote. After getting quotes from a few of them, you can choose the one that best fits your budget and needs.
