Driveway & Pathway Chip

Cart Path ChipClick for Larger Photo

Bin # 04

Cart Path Chip

You’ve seen it on your favourite golf course as the gravel on the golf cart paths – now the same great chips are available for your own yard!

Cart Path Chip is an excellent blend of 1/4” minus rock full of loose material that compacts to a tough base. Because this material packs tightly it is ideal for garden pathways: comfortable to walk on, and easy to push a fully loaded wheelbarrow on top of.

For those golfers out there, this is THE product that builds the firm base under our artificial grass putting green kits. Yes, your oasis awaits!

Cedar ChipClick for Larger Photo

Bin # n/a

Cedar Chip

Subject to availability. Minimum order 5 yards – NOT stocked in Nanaimo yard.

Medium to coarse grind. Very soft (spongy) underfoot: excellent for natural pathways and damp areas. This chip is aromatic and due to the natural oils in cedar, the chip rots very slowly compared to other mulched wood products – and this helps to create a durable long-lasting natural ground layer.

Excellent for slopes and due to the coarser nature (than bark mulch) this cedar mulch is less prone to moving around in windy areas.

We DO NOT recommend using this as a mulch on planting beds because the oils can harm/inhibit landscape plant growth. Used appropriately, however, it is an excellent weed controller!

Crushed 1/2” ClearClick for Larger Photo

Bin # 02

Crushed 1/2” Clear

New Product for Spring 2018

This gravel features the same coloration as our larger 3/4” fracture. Crushed 1/2” clear can be used for garden pathways, gravel driveways, and in conjunction with weed-barrier fabric – a general groundcover in landscaping. It is also a great material for packing in around wood-fence post installations to help with drainage and keep wet dirt off of the posts. This helps to help slow rotting of buried posts. Due to it’s angular nature this is a good packing material that also still drains freely due to the lack of fines – also great for wet areas in the landscape. A truly versatile product.

Bin # 11

Pea Gravel, 1/2”

The standard gravel for exposed aggregate concrete and playgrounds, Pea Gravel is a “soft”, round rock, about 1/2” in diameter.

Sand

Bedding Sand (coarse)Click for Larger Photo

Bin # 09

Bedding Sand (coarse)

A coarse, general purpose sand. Great for bedding water pipe or irrigation lines in trenches, turning into sand bags, and laying underneath paving stones.

Gravel Mixtures & Fill

Bin # n/a

Clear Crush, 3/4”-3”

From the same quarry as our popular 3/4” fractured rock, this product offers a larger scale version with the same coloring. This material can be hand-placed, however, due to the larger size of this rock a machine such as a bobcat loader is advised for placement as larger rocks are simply harder to hand-shovel. Uses include ground-cover for larger scale installation and “tightening up” of poor or damp sub-soils in preparation for further building or overlay with road-base material on top such as for a driveway installation.

Bin # n/a

Recycled Asphalt, 3/4”

As it sounds – ground up asphalt that is screened to 3/4” minus material. Should be placed at about 3” depth on a prepared sub-base of road base. This can then provide an excellent gravel roadway material such as for long gravel driveway installations. Best placed, smoothed out and compacted. Will initially seem “a little soft” but once it is weathered – rained on and the sun bakes it – this gravel it will harden up and create a great, durable surface. NOT an asphalt replacement! This gravel however does have the unique benefit of VERY minimal dust due to the bit of residual oil in the gravel mixture that “locks up” the fines and prevents them from blowing around.

Road Base, 3/4” (MoT Spec)Click for Larger Photo

Road Base, 3/4” (MoT Spec)

Road Base is built to pack. A dense mixture of rock and sand made for strong, hard-packing bases, Road Base is perfect for use under paving stones (under the bedding sand layer), retaining wall blocks, poured concrete slabs, or roadways.

This product is also commonly referred to as ‘3/4” Minus’, ‘3/4” Crush’, or ‘Road Pack’.

Bin # n/a

Road Base, 3” (MoT Spec)

Similar to our 3/4” road base, but with larger rocks. This is the same material used to build up strength under road-ways and highways in preparation for topping off with 3/4” road base. Suitable anywhere a large depth of good structural fill is required in preparation for further building such as around house foundations, under driveways, and concrete slabs. This material has the added benefit of being a “tight” material but still freely draining – something that simply cannot be found with standard clay/dirt backfill on a jobsite.
