Delivery of crushed rock/concrete products
So that you don't fill out a check based on the amount of the quote that you received, please be aware that delivered amounts may vary +/- .75 yards according to how much is actually loaded into the dump truck. When you receive the bill from the driver, the bill will reflect the actual (and exact) amount of yards that have been loaded into the dump truck. This actual amount may vary from what you originally ordered by +/- .75 yards.
For example, you order 6 yards of 5/8" Minus Crushed Rock to be delivered from Joe's Landscaping Supplies. When we load it into the dump truck, the truck may end up with slighlty more or less than 6 yards due to the large size of our loader bucket and the difficulty to measure exact amounts when the bucket scoops up the material. Once it is loaded into the truck, we drive the truck onto a big scale that weighs it. We subtract the truck weight from the total weight to determine the exact weight of the material that has been loaded.
We know that most rock and concrete materials are approximately 1.3 tons per yard. So if you order 6 yards, you may get exactly 6 yards or 6.4 yards or even 5.8 yards. It just depends on the scale weight. We don't don't charge you any more or any less than what has been loaded in the truck so you can be assured that you are getting exactly what you are paying for! Which we can't say our competitors all do. We are very honest and precise and will adjust your invoice to reflect the actual amount you received and you pay for only that amount!
The driver will inform you of the invoice total when he/she arrives at your address. If we load the truck far enough in advance of when we deliver it to you, we may call or email you with the exact total so you can have payment ready.
1/4" Minus Crushed Rock
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock is recommended for applications where you want the rock to pack down.
This very small crushed aggregate is mostly used for specialty walkways or under pavers and stepping stones. This size is hard to find too (at least if you call our competitors) so the price is a little higher than the standard 5/8" minus size. Never fear, Joe has it in stock!
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock contains no "minus" size material.
It is the same size as Pea Gravel (the size of a pea) and can be used for drainage applications or even as a topdressing on top of existing larger 5/8" Minus Crushed Rock to give your walkway a more manicured look and some pazaz!!
Sold by the cubic yard, 5/8" Minus Crushed Concrete is almost exactly the same as 5/8" Minus Crushed Rock both in how it looks and its applications.
It is used as a top course for driveways, walkways, and compacts down (+ great for potholes too). The best part is that it is usually $3-5 cheaper per yard than 5/8" Minus Crushed Rock.
5/8" Minus Crushed Rock
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock is recommended for applications where you need the rock to pack down.
This is the most commonly sold crushed rock and typically used as a "top course" material. It is perfect for driveways, filling in potholes, for walkways or for use as a compacting fill. For a less expensive alternative to this product, see also our 5/8" Minus Crushed Concrete (above).
1 1/4" Minus Crushed Concrete
Sold by the cubic yard, this recycled Crushed Concrete is recommended for applications where you need the material to pack down.
1 1/4" Minus Crushed Concrete is used for driveways and walkways and is considered a "base course" material because it is larger rock.
Note that the color of the crushed concrete is a lighter shade than the crushed rock. Also, since it is a recycled product, there can be a small amount of inert content such as pieces of brick, wiring, rebar mixed in or stuck in the crushed up pieces of concrete. You can either remove them or not depending on the application you are using the material for. Overal, this is a great material for the value and much cheaper than Crushed Rock
1 1/4" Minus Crushed Rock
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock is recommended for applications where you need the rock to pack down.
1 1/4" Minus Crushed Rock is used for driveways and walkways and is considered a "base course" material because it is larger rock.

1 1/4" x 5/8" Clean Crushed Rock
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock is recommended for drainage applications and for packing, however it does not pack down as well as 1 1/4" Minus Crushed Rock because it doesn't have as many smaller pieces in it.
1 1/4" x 5/8" Clean Crushed Rock is used for driveways and walkways and is considered a "base course" material because it is larger rock.

2" Crushed Rock Chips contain no "minus" size material. It is often referred to as "Railroad Ballast" as it is used in between railroad ties and around railroad tracks for stability and drainage. This stuff is great if you have a muddy driveway or other area that you need to fill in and stabilize.
1"- 3" Recycled Concrete "Cobbles"
Sold by the cubic yard, recycled Crushed Concrete is a low cost remedy and recommended for filling applications or for use in stablizing very wet muddy driveways or other areas. See also our Compactible Fill Material here. It too is a low cost material for muddy areas, filling in holes and driving on!
1"-3" Crushed Concrete is used for driveways and is considered a "base course" material because it is larger rock.
