Also known as rip rap or rubble, shot rock is used to armor shorelines, streambeds, bridge abutments, and pilings against scour, water, or ice erosion. It is commonly made from granite or limestone and occasionally from building demolition concrete rubble. Shot rock works by absorbing and deflecting waves before they reach the structure they are defending. The gaps trap and slow the flow of water. Shot rock also absorbs the impact of the waves to prevent damage.
Crusher Run is used as road base material. It creates an excellent hard surface for applications such as an outdoor shed, parking area, or base for flagstone walks and patios. It is any lose rock larger than 2 mm or too large to be considered gravel. This type of rock is very economical and recycles old rock material for new uses.
Also referred to as exposed concrete, washed concrete stone is achieved by washing away a thin layer of surface mortar to expose the depth at which particles that could not be seen are revealed. Timing is a big factor in this process, so it best suited for smaller projects. Washed concrete stone is often used for driveways and garden beds.
KP Heavy Equipment’s washed 3/8” chips have a similar appearance to the washed concrete stone, but are smaller and are chipped out of a larger piece of rock to create flakes. These can also be used in driveways and flower beds.
