Here are some pics of a recent Gravel-Lok installation in Baltimore City...
"This is the Upper Fells Point Community Garden located on East Pratt and South Wolfe Streets in Baltimore City. I was involved in this planned project doing the Gravel-Lok part of the job. The community received a grant to get this done and my company donated the labor."

GRAVEL-LOK Updated Coverage Rates – MIX method
We are no longer recommending 16 oz. liquid : 5 gallon bucket of stones
It works in some cases, depending on the cleanliness and size of the stone, but using 18 oz. is better for a wider variety of scenarios.
Rare cases: if somebody is using stones which are really small, 1/8” then we recommend using 20 oz. : 5 gallon bucket of stones. The smaller the stone, the more surface area of stones to cover.
ADA Compliance would need stones which are 1/8” up to 1/2” to create a smoother pavement for wheelchairs.
FOR MOST CASES…..
1/4” up to 1/2” for pavements (and this includes 3/8”) should be mixed at 18 oz. liquid : 5 gallon bucket of stones
At 1” thick: 210 sf/5 gallon container (USE ONLY ON CONCRETE LAY OVERS)
At 1.5” thick: 140 sf / 5 gallon container
At 2.0” thick: 105 sf/5 gallon container
If they are using 1/8” size stone then you should use 20 oz. liquid : 5 gallon bucket of stones.
At 1” thick: 180 sf / 5 gallon container
At 1.5” thick: 120 sf/5 gallon container
At 2.0” thick: 90 sf / 5 gallon container
