1/2" CRUSH CLEAR & 3/4" CRUSH CLEAR

This product is available in both the ½ inch or ¾ inch sizes, Crushed Clear Rock is a popular choices for pathways leading to home entrances, or anywhere in need of drainage.  The name “clear” refers to the absence of a binding agent, meaning less small material to track in on shoes and boots.  The difference between the ½ inch or ¾ inch is mostly appearance, with the ½ inch looking more decorative and less commercial. The benefit of a “clear” product is less moisture retention, so less chance of vegetation taking hold in your pathway.  Installed with a good weed barrier below it, the Crushed Clear Rock should remain relatively weed free. The issue of depth, like driveways, is still to be considered, as a deep layer of Crushed Clear Rock is more likely to move when walked on. 

 For High Traffic Areas or Driveways we would recommend our 3/4 Stone Base, or 3/8 Cart Path because they contain a binding agent which allow them to pack down and therefore will not shift when walked or driven on.  These gravel products are typically sold in bulk, loaded a 1/2 yard at a time. For your convenience we also carry them in 40lb bags, or you can bring your own 5 gallon pails or garbage cans and we would be happy to load those for you as well. See below for tips on creating pathways and driveways.

3/8" CART PATH

This Product, also known as screenings, gets its name from its use on the golf course. Consisting of 3/8 crushed rock and crusher fines this product will pack up nice and hard and is mainly used for pathways, driveways or anywhere a heavier wheeled vehicle such as a tractor would need to travel often. The only downside to the product is its lack of drainage. If drainage is a concern for you, we would recommend the 3/4 Stone Base which has the same binding agent however the larger rock allows for better drainage.

3/4" STONE BASE

It is mainly used for driveways, parking areas, pathways, or anywhere you want a compact surface while still providing drainage.

TIPS FOR CREATING A GRAVEL PATH OR DRIVEWAY

There are many different material options for driveways and pathways.  Various gravel materials offer different results.  The following is only a guide, designed to be of assistance when choosing your material/products.  Much of the decision is really about customer preference. Most existing driveways will require only approximately 2 inches of depth of material to resurface it back to original condition.  This is also a variable, since some conditions, such as potholes or deep mud may increase the depth required.
