With Summer arriving and Fall just around the corner, many are starting their landscaping projects at their homes or businesses. Landscaping with rocks and stones can be a long process but also has the benefits that homeowners want and appreciate in making their property have that “WOW” factor.
There are many options when it comes to making the perfect landscaping theme for the homeowner. It’s important to have the correct materials when completing these projects. For example, selecting the right mason sand for installing pavers instead of using a torpedo sand or concrete sand that could cause uneven pavers. The same goes for having the proper materials for a new driveway. A 1” down to dust material (Indiana #53), ¾” clean limestone (Indiana #8), or #2 limestone are great materials to consider for driveway. An Indiana #53 can be used in a variety of ways such as a base for pavers or even retaining walls. Landscapers can “mix and match” stones with a variety of options such as pea gravel, red granite or limestone with other decorative rocks to beautify the look to your property. Limestone or red granite screenings are both dense graded materials that are used for walkways or paths. These materials compact to provide a sturdy base needed in high traffic areas. Using large armor stone, rip rap or boulders with your landscaping stone can provide added curb appeal to hardscapes. Often times, stones of these sizes are used for erosion control and in drainage. You’ll find armor stones and boulders on beaches used as break walls to protect the shore.
No matter the job big or small it’s critical to have the right materials from start to finish:
