We have the real stuff....not the fake stuff some of our competitors sell.
Our 3/8" Pea Gravel is washed, round, smooth, forever lasting "pea" sized rock and sold by the cubic yard. Some of our competitors sell what they call pea gravel but it is very small 1/4" crushed rock (with sharp edges) or Pea Gravel that has not been washed so it contains fines and sandy dirt mixed in. Pea Gravel does not compact or "set up".
3/8" Pea Gravel is commonly used for drainage applications, pipe beading, Red-i-Mix concrete and lastly, for under swingsets to provide cushion for falling little butts!
For under playsets or swingsets, it is recommended to apply 3/8" Pea Gravel at least 6" deep. Some sites recommend up to 9" deep. FYI, 1 yard covers 54 square feet 6" deep. You can also go to our How Much Do I Need? page for a useful calculator to help you determine how much you'll need.
This material is an excellent alternative to Drain Rock (for the right applications) and is usually $7-10 cheaper per yard, making it a great value. It is the byproduct of the topsoil screening process and is approximately 80% round drain rock, 10% dirt and 10% small sticks. We have to warn you though, it is not a pretty product. If it was a baby, we'd say it had a face only a mother could love!! However, it is a perfect substitute for Drain Rock if you are planning to bury it anyway (and not look at it). Many of our customers have used it as backfill for their retaining walls, to fill in muddy areas, potholes etc. Tailing rock does not compact or "set up".
See the picture below with the cell phone in the middle as a size reference.
Sold by the cubic yard, this rock is also called Washed Rock. It is commonly used for drainage applications and as a very low maintenance ground cover. For ground cover applications, put down our weed blocking fabric first, then apply the rock on top. This 7/8"x 1/4" Drain Rock (smaller) is more desirable than the larger sized 1 1/2"-3/4" Drain Rock because of one simple fact: It is easier to shovel!!
The rock is round and smooth so it is NOT usually recommended for walkways or driveways because it does not pack down. It does not compact or "set up". Please use 5/8" Minus Crushed Rock or Crushed Concrete for this purpose).
