Perfect for filling in the flower bed under an outside staircase at work, but needed WAY more than the suggested amount on the outside of the bag. The bag indicates it covers 3sqft 2in deep, but it's more like 2sqft MAX. I should've only needed 10 bags, but I ended up going back and getting 8 more bags. Even then, for perfection, I should get another 3 or 4 bags...plan to get at least x2 more than you think. Hose off the stones after placing, since they have a white powder residue that covers up the natural beauty of the marble stone. Value was great though - on sale in store, and the employees at Home Depot were super helpful with loading my cart and putting the bags in my car :)
Marble chips have a good variation of white with gray streaks, can add a lot of style at low cost to any yard or area. I suggest over buying a few bags if you are in doubt of your specific Cubic feet needs. One more thing to point out is that over time you will want to continually add a little more rock to keep the area looking fresh, I usually add more during the Holidays when family will be in town.
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install
They're rocks - what can you say? I purchased these to 1) put a decorative 6-8 inch border around my above ground pool and 2) fill a natural low spot (about a 3x12 foot walkway) between the pool and fence that stays wet and muddy and to fill in around the pump and filter area.
They look great. The pool border is very attractive. The low/wet area has also improved. We laid down some left over plastic pool ground cover and put gravel on top of that to keep the weeds from growing through. Now I can easily walk in that area without the mud. BUT - get more than you think you'll need. I had a large area to cover and bought an initial 20 bags. Went back and got another 34! Still have to go back and get another 20. They cover a small compact area easily - the border, but for the wider area it took more than expected to provided added depth and cover.
Finally, these rocks are actually larger than I expected. I was thinking they were a small fine gravel - more pea size I guess, and in fact they are mostly more golf ball size.
But I got the 1st 54 bags when they were on sale at $3 each so a great bargain. Overall I'm very pleased.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality
Used these as a bed for my backyard DIY firepit. It was a little rainy, which in FL was actually useful as it kept the sand in the ground from seeping around. Although the outcome is phenomenal and exactly what I was looking for, putting them in was a mess. When these rocks get moist, they leave behind a white pasty substance in the bag and, if you touch the inside of the bag or the rocks, on you. Recommend wearing gloves for work with these! But, a great product from your hometown Home Depot!
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Functionality, Stylish, Great Quality, Good Shape
I learned this from my parents who lived in central Texas where rattle snakes were a problem. Put white rocks around your house to keep snakes away. We live in NC and our backyard backs up to a creek and natural area which is beautiful but copperheads would frequently be found up next to our house. Once we cleared out the area and put these white rocks no more copperheads near our house. Now anywhere we want to be snake free we put these.
I bought the rocks to landscape around my pool. Love them so far. The only comment is they need to have a weight on the bag to help consumers know how many bags they can load into their vehicle. I didn't weigh one but after pouring about 25 bags of them, I can tell you they weigh about 40lbs each
Pros: Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Functionality, Durable, Strong, Great Quality

This product capture my walkway to my garden just as I wanted it to look.
The product in the bag was so easy to spread and use. I am 62 and I was able to complete my garden project. It looks so beautiful. I have used this product 10 years ago and it is still functioning, so this is why I decided to use it again to make the pathway side my raised GArden. The price was great also!!!!
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Stylish, Great Quality
Making a walkway on my property. Since bags are so heavy and I needed about 25 bags, I did it in stages since I don't have a truck. Many of the bags did NOT have "white marble" but rather Brown and discolored rocks. About 3 out of 4 bags were like this. And, as I stated, I didn't just get one lot or batch of these but rather I got these over a period of about 6 weeks. Very disappointed, poor quality product. If you buy these, I suggest you scrutinize the bags very carefully and bring along a bodybuilder since slinging these bags around and pouring through a pallet of these is no easy task.
I bout 10 bags thinking it would be enough. I was way off. Not a problem untill I realized that they have a white powder coating, after being out in the weather for a few months or in their bag at the store getting wet, they kind of turn grey. While I was dumping the bags a few months ago I noticed the powder and assumed it was from them cutting marble. Now a few months later adding more bags I see they turned grey and the new ones hod a lot more powder in the bags. Not a bad product, I just didnt want grey rocks.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality
I bought about 30 bags from one store, all from the same pallet, the first 10 were really white, the next 15 not as white, had a yellow tint and the last 5 were white. in the store they all look white and the bags state white marble chips. I needed 5 more bags, went to another home depot, I told the men who hepled me get them about the colors, they check the bags i bought and they all looked white, I added them to the walk way, a couple had a greyish tone to the rocks, these were the last 5 bags i needed an where all again from the same pallet but different store. Not home depot fault has to be kick back to the rock company. The walk way still looks good but if you look close you can notice the color difference.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Stylish
The marble chips are very nice, easy to lay out. The project, a winding garden walk, turned out great. If there is any downside, the chips have a lot of gray mixed in with them, but they do bleach a little in the sun.
Didn't need a huge bag of stones - just wanted some to hold my tiki torches on my balcony ( in a big planter). Very attracive; can use for other projects. Live in a condo, so I didn't need an industrial-sized bag. Diddn't want dirt or any thing that might attract bugs. This was the perfect amount!
