Sand for Landscaping and Construction
Sand is commonly used in construction and for many other purposes. A naturally occurring material, it is formed from quartz in riverbeds, floodplains, and glacial deposits and abundant throughout the United States. Properties such as easy compaction and the ability to let water pass through its grains make sand ideal for forming a solid base for wide-ranging projects or creating drainage. It is also often used as a mixing agent to create common construction materials, including concrete, and as a decorative element in landscaping. This affordable material won’t break down over time and adds an attractive look when used for aesthetic purposes.
Common applications for the sand offered by Rock Products, Inc. include:
- Concrete, asphalt, and mortar mixing
- Road construction
- Volleyball courts
- Other recreational facilities
- Golf course bunkers, or sand traps
- Gardens, flowerbeds, and other landscaping uses
Gravel for Commercial and Residential Use
Gravel may be naturally occurring or created by crushing limestone, basalt, or sandstone. It is typically smoother than crushed rock but also conforms easily to form an ideal base for roadways, walking paths, and building projects. Like sand, gravel allows drainage in areas where water collection is a concern. Customers can choose gravel from Rock Products, Inc. in a variety of sizes, including larger options for commercial applications and the smaller sizes favored by landscapers and for residential DIY projects.
Gravel is often used for all of the following:
- Construction fill
- Garden and landscaping use
- Trails and walkways
- Parking lots
- Water filtration
- Road construction
- Patio and other residential structure foundations
