This decorative stone works great in the landscape as erosion control. Placed in a swale or other wet area, runoff from rain will flow through and around these stones without eroding the soil. Create a dry creek bed or drainage channel that is low maintenance and cost effective. River rock has a smooth surface with rocks varying from golf ball size to tennis ball size.
Coarse sand is the general all purpose sand. Very useful for a wide variety of construction projects and very economical.
Dense Grade Aggregate (DGA)
Dense grade, or DGA as it is commonly called, is great for patio and retaining wall construction. It compacts very tightly and is a good choice for building a solid base.
This gravel choice is commonly used for driveways. It's angular shape compacts well and interlocks for a solid surface. It holds up well to vehicle traffic.
If you need drainage control but don't need the larger size or more decorative aspect of River Rock, smooth 57's may be your best choice. Use it any place where drainage is an issue or as backfill behind a landscape retaining wall.
