Description

A crushed 3/4” river rock with fines that is brown in color. Most commonly used as a base rock underlayment for flagstone patios and walkways. Used also as a base for laying asphalt or concrete.

When spreading and compacting 3/4” minus, make sure to use some water. This will make for very tight compaction.

Tip: If trying to fix a muddy area, dig out all the mud or dirt before applying the rock. This will help the rock compact better and last longer.
