We generally have four different sands in stock: Fill Sand, Plaster Sand, Felton Sand, and Playground Sand. Fill Sand, also known as PG&E Sand, is very fine and compacts easily. Plaster Sand is a similar grey color, but is rougher and contains larger granules. Plaster Sand is also commonly used underneath flagstone and pavers. Felton Sand is our finest sand, and is yellow in color. It is often used in-between flagstone, pavers, and brick. Playground Sand, also known as industrial sand, is made up of coarse grains, and contains no dust particles. Playground sand is ideal for playgrounds and sandboxes.
We have two varieties of decomposed granite: blue and gold. The blue variety is called “Blue Crushed Granite” or “Blue Path Fines”. Decomposed granite compacts well, and can be used in several ways. For example, it is often used in paths, beneath flagstone, and for decomposed granite driveways. We also carry liquid stabilizer that is a breeze to apply!
Pea gravel consists of small rounded stones, roughly the size of a pea (ranging from about 1/4″ to 5/16″). Pea gravel is often used in decorative applications: as ground cover, for driveways, and for rooftops.
Our base rock comes in two varieties: virgin and recycled. Both of these are 3/4″ Class II base rocks. The visible difference between them is that the recycled base rock is brown, while the virgin is grey. The recycled base rock is less expensive, more eco-friendly, and can be used in any application where a class II base rock is required.
We offer both a 3/4″ Crushed Drain Rock and a 3/4″ Round Drain Rock. This product can be used where drainage is required, and is ideal for French drains. Drain rock can also be used in driveways, or for filling in potholes.
