Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is gravel used for?

Gravel is a loose aggregate composed of rock fragments. It is used in construction, landscaping, and other projects, such as filling in walkways, driveways, and other areas. It is also used in the manufacture of concrete and asphalt.

 

For homeowners, gravel is often used for driveways and pathways, walkways, patios, and garden beds, as well as for drainage purposes. It can also be used to create dry creek beds, water features, and ornamental features in a garden.

 

2. What is the best gravel for landscaping?

The best type of gravel for landscaping depends on the project. For walkways and paths, a combination of crushed stone, river rock, and sand are often used. For driveways, pea gravel is a popular choice. Decorative gravel such as marble chips, slate chips, and quartzite can be used around flower beds or in water features.

 

3. What is the difference between aggregate and gravel?

Aggregate is a broad category of coarse to medium-grained particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Gravel is a specific type of aggregate that consists of rounded, semi-polished stones and is used mainly for drainage, driveways, and paths.

 

4. Can you lay gravel on soil?

Yes, you can lay gravel on soil. It is often used to create a solid, level surface for driveways, pathways, and patios.

 

5. What is the best type of gravel to use for a driveway?

The best type of gravel to use for a driveway is crushed stone or gravel that has been mechanically processed to form a range of sizes of particles. Crushed stone is preferable to gravel because it is more durable and less prone to shifting or becoming displaced. The size and type of gravel should be chosen based on the intended purpose of the driveway, such as drainage, weight-bearing capacity, or aesthetic appeal.

 

6. Does gravel absorb water?

Unfortunately, gravel does not absorb water. You'll need to look for other materials, such as soil, sand, or mulch, if you are looking for something to absorb water in your garden or landscaping.

 

7. What should I put down before gravel?

It is recommended to put down a fabric or landscaping cloth before adding gravel. This helps prevent weeds from growing through the gravel and keeps the gravel from sinking into the soil.

 

8. Can I lay gravel without digging?

Yes, you can lay gravel without digging, although it is not ideal. Gravel can be placed on a surface such as concrete, stone, or asphalt and can also be used to fill in any gaps or holes in the ground. However, it is important to make sure the surface is even and level before adding the gravel, as uneven surfaces can cause the gravel to shift or settle unevenly.
