Like ancient coins, these charcoal colored chips look tumbled and well-worn but their softened edges create a perfect groundcover.

Crushed stone, also known as gravel, decorative rock or deco gravel, is a popular material for both commercial and residential projects. Created by crushing large stones, it has angular surfaces which help it lock into place for increased stability. Crushed rock ranges in size from 3/8” to 12+” in diameter. The most common sizes are 3/8" and 3/4" and is an ideal groundcover to surround trees or plants, for pathways, driveways, and more. The larger sizes (1"-3", 3"-8") are often referred to as "Rubble" and can be used to slow water run off in drainage areas or to separate various areas of a landscape. Low cost and easy installation make crushed rock a good choice to cover your largest areas. Favorites include California Gold 3/4” and Hickory Creek.
