The Nitty-Gritty on Gravels
“WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GRAVEL AND STONE?”
We hear this a lot. At Groundhog, the way we generally distinguish between the two is:
GRAVEL has sand and fines in it
STONE is a free-draining product
If you’re not familiar with purchasing gravel products, here is a brief description of our aggregates:
Also known as “crushed base” or “processed gravel,” crushed gravel is a compatible aggregate used as a base for road construction, patios and walkways and foundations. Although it compacts, crushed gravel also drains because we only allow a certain percentage of fines in the product.
We have two sizes of crushed gravel available: 3/4” and 1-1/2”
Crushed stone is a sharp edged, free-draining aggregate that is used for drainage and decorative purposes such as foundation planting beds and parking areas.
We have three sizes of crushed stone available: 3/8”, 3/4”, 1-1/2”
River Stone is a free-draining stone that is different from crushed stone in that it is a smooth, natural product harvested from stream beds or sifted from the ground. The advantage of River Stone over crushed stone is it smooth on underfoot and has a natural ground earth tone color.
Erosion stone, also known as “rip rap” or “rap stone” is simply a larger version of our crushed stone and is used for earth retention and in drainage swales. Our erosion stone varies in size from 2” to 6”.
There are many sizes of sand products, but we only carry one. Also known as “concrete sand,” screen sand is best used under patios and in mortar mixes. It is a coarser grade of sand, free-draining, with stones down to a quarter-inch in size removed through a screening process.
Stone dust is a byproduct of crushing rock. The fines are separated from crushed gravel product because they cannot be used on a road construction base product. Stone dust packs hard and forms a good base for railroad ties or natural stone slab patios. For concrete paver construction, we recommend screened sand on a crushed gravel base.
