3 Main Types of Aggregates Used in Landscaping

Types of Aggregates Used in Landscaping

Our aggregates are available in a range of styles, sizes and types. We carry decorative and construction aggregates that can be used for many different purposes in gardening, landscaping or building. With all the possibilities and varieties, it can become almost overwhelming to choose the right option for your garden.

This is why we’ve put together this list of the three main types of aggregates to use in your landscaping. They include washed sand, recycled asphalt and concrete, and road gravel products. These products were picked not for their aesthetic beauty, but their many functional possibilities. For decorative aggregate suggestions, check out this article.

The Three Main Aggregates Used in Landscaping

Washed Sand

Washed sand is available in both 3-mm and 5-mm sieve sizes. It can be used as a fill material for bricklaying, masonry, stucco and joint material for paving stones. Plus, it can be used as a fine pack for solidifying the ground, or as inexpensive play area material for a children’s play area. You can even add it to your garden beds to loosen the soil.

Recycled Asphalt & Concrete

The ideal materials for walkways and pathways, recycled asphalt and concrete are durable and a great alternative to common road gravel. They are one of our most affordable aggregate products and many prefer them for their ability to deter dust clouds from forming. 

Road Gravel

When you want an all-around landscaping product, you’re probably looking for road gravel. Our 20-mm seize size ensures you get a great mix of sand and gravel that will compact down and form a sturdy, lasting surface. Some people may know this product as road crush or crushed gravel, but all who have used it know the aggregate as a useful and versatile landscaping product.
