Question How much decomposed granite to order?

If I am making garden paths and/or driveways of decomposed granite, how much extra do I need in order to allow for packing? 100 sq. ft. of area 3+" deep is just about 1 cu. yd., but will I actually need 1.5 yards, 2 yards, 5 yards? Thanks for any comments.

I would figure 20% overage to allow for settling and packing. You may find that some places settle more than other over time and need a bit more to fill these spots.
