Processed gravel has a more rounded shape that is created by natural processes, unlike crushed stone, which is created by breaking down larger rocks with a crusher. This processed gravel combines several different materials to create the final, eye-catching product. It is a blend of stone, sand, and other particles often used for driveways, gardens, and walkways. Processed gravel typically comes in ¾-3 ½” sizes.
Crushed stone is created by breaking down a specific rock formation using a crusher. It can be created using several types of rock, including limestone, granite, washed gravel, and quartzite. This is a lower cost material that is frequently used in the construction industry. Crushed Stone commonly comes in 1/4” to 2” size but can be as large as 3-6”.
Lombardi Gravel offers a wide variety of earth products, from structural fill to screened topsoil, to clay products. Each earth product is best for different types of projects. For example, screened topsoil is great for nurturing a finicky garden or fruit trees to their full potential, while structural fill is a less expensive option for larger construction products.
Topsoil is the key ingredient for growing any plant. Screened topsoil is sifted through specifically sized mesh during the manufacturing process so that the topsoil has a consistent particle size. This helps nutrients and water flow naturally through the soil.
