Gravel & Roadbase
Crusher dust is a finely crushed granite product that compacts well to form a hard base. It can be used as a cost-effective back filling and packing material around or under water tanks and slabs. It can also be blended with natural sands to improve concrete shrinkage and water demand or as a material to back-fill trenches with.
Crusher dust also contains minerals that are insoluble to water, which makes it an ideal material to stop mineral leaching in soils, to reduce water logging and to raise the pH levels of soil.
5-7mm Drainage Gravel
5-7mm blue metal screenings also called pea gravel is most commonly used around in-ground stormwater and plumbing pipes. Because the colour is consistent it can also be used as a decorative gravel on driveways or pathways.
Being finer than the other drainage gravels also makes it easier to walk on with bare feet.
Red Drainage Gravel - 10 and 20mm
10mm and 20mm red/grey metal screenings. The 20mm is most commonly used behind retaining walls for drainage. Both gravel sizes can be used on driveways if colour consistency is not an issue. If you prefer a consistent colour use the Blue Drainage Gravel.

Blue Drainage Gravel - 10 and 20mm
10mm and 20mm blue/grey metal screenings. The 20mm is most commonly used for visible drainage. Both sizes can be used on driveways or pathways if colour consistency is required.

Drainage Gravel - 40-75mm
This 75mm blue gravel is ideal for drainage where a larger size aggregate is needed due to higher water flow. It is also ideal as a base for vehicle crossings in wet of boggy areas.
River Gravel - 10, 20, 40 and 75-150mm
This natural river rock comes in a range of sizes.
Smaller 10mm gravel is often used on driveways and pathways whereas the larger sizes including the 20mm, 40mm and 75-150mm are often used to create dry creek river beds.

Creating a Dry Creek Bed
This 25mm roadbase is unspecified and is a cheaper alternative to blue roadbase if a consistent colour is not required.
A quality blue/grey 27mm roadbase for driveways or as a substrate for pavers. When rolled in correctly it forms a very stable road. If colour consistency is not an issue then the Red Roadbase is a cheaper alternative.
If you want a soft, rustic look for your drive or pathways, decomposed granite is an alternative to gravel or hard surfaces such as paving, bitumen or concrete.
It is usually a reddish tan colour and should alway be compacted when laid. It is also beneficial to add a stabiliser or cement dust prior to compaction to create a harder wearing surface.
