Meet Joey at Pike nursery to pick stone. He suggests we hand-select since the area is small. I find out it is also cheaper because you don't pay for split or debris pieces that are often part of a pallet. We get $296 worth--enough to cover about 100 square feet. Joey gets started on our sand-set patio.
