Gravel

Rice, Pea, ¾” Gravel, #2 Gravel, and Base Gravel #3. Gravel is typically graded by size, and most driveways use at least three different sizes of gravel that are put down in layers to create a solid foundation and ensure proper drainage. A popular choice for the bottom layer is #3 stone, which ranges in size from one to two inches in diameter. Also called “clean stone,” this base gravel is made from machine-crushed stone and is composed of irregular rock fragments.

Fill Dirt

Fill dirt consists of a mixture of broken down rocks, sand and clay. It contains little fertility for plants to grow, or any organic matter. There are still many reasons you would want to select fill dirt for your project. Topsoil contains organic matter and is likely to shift or settle over time. If you are looking for filler then fill dirt will provide a more stable material.

Crush and Run

Crush and run gravel is made from tiny pieces of gravel that is mixed with limestone. This is a useful top layer for gravel driveways because the limestone sticks together when wet, helping the driveway last longer. Crush and run gravel driveways are affordable and can last for years if they are properly maintained.

Sand

We offer a wide variety from fine sands for pool installation to courser sands for pipe bedding, ready mix concrete, and ice control on roadways.

Crushed Stone

Crushed stone is available in a variety of sizes, from 3/8” to 4”. Because it is literally crushed stone, there is no consistency to its shape. The edges tend to be sharper and it feels rougher to the touch than other aggregate materials. There are many different uses for crushed stone, but it is typically used as an aggregate for underground projects. Many contractors prefer to use ½” or ¾” crushed stone as a subbase material before pouring concrete.

Topsoil

We can provide screened and unscreened topsoil upon request. Topsoil is very different from fill dirt. It consists of healthy nutrients taken from the top layer of soil and contains organic matter. Typically topsoil is used to grow plants and vegetables in our gardens and pots.
