Now is the time to install your RV, camper or toy hauler parking pad. Soon we will be getting rain and snow that will make the project more difficult and time consuming. Each city and county has different rules and regulations for new parking pads and driveways, depending if they are visible from the street and are in the property yard. You should check with them before beginning your project.

While each type of roadbase has many uses, specific types of roadbases work better in different situations. Class 6 Granite roadbase is the best overall material to build your parking pad with. It works better on freshly graded dirt. Poorly drained areas where standing water may be an issue, on sandy or clay soils, because of the amount of aggregate and binders in it.

Class 6 Recycled Concrete Roadbase works well installed over freshly graded dirt, as a top layer over existing base of material and in some situations over clay soil. It doesn't work quite as well in sandy, mucky clay or poorly drained areas.

Recycled Asphalt roadbases does not usually meet the specification recipe for Class 6 Roadbase due to the varying amount of aggregate in some of the asphalt that was crushed. The tradeoff is that freshly crushed and screened asphalt compacts well over newly graded dirt thats been compacted and will stay compacted, depending on the traffic and how the snow is plowed. It works over clay soils at a 4 inch or thicker depth. It will disappear in sandy soils.

What is Class 6 roadbase? Class 6 is a (specification or Spec or recipe) for 3/4 inch minus roadbase. That means that the size of the largest aggregate in the material is 3/4 inch rock, then 1/2 inch rock, then 3/8 inch rock and then the fines. In Granite road base it consists of granite fines, in Recycled Asphalt it contains asphalt fines, and in Recycled Concrete it contains concrete fines. Granite roadbase meets this, Recycled Concrete roadbase sometimes meets it, Recycled Asphalt roadbase seldom meets it.

What are the different types of Road Base available? The Roadbases we sell the most of are:
Granite Class 6 Roadbase
Recycled Concrete Roadbase
Recycled Asphalt Roadbase

Due to the pandemic there is often a shortage of Recycled Asphalt and Recycled Concrete. We have mountains of Granite Roadbase, no pun intended

We sell washed concrete sand which is suitable for roundpens and horse arenas.

It is a medium size course sand particle that holds up best to most arena roundpen uses very well.

You do not want over 3 inches of sand in the arena or roundpen and you may want to start with a 2 inch lift. Too much sand can injure your horse. It is much easier to add more material than to remove it.

Heavy daily use of the arenas and roundpens by multiple horses can break the sand down and it will become dusty. This is natural, just as every so often your car needs new brakes or tires, your horse riding and exercise areas will need new sand.

At that point you can add another inch or so of sand or use squeegee instead. Squeegee is 1/4 inch minus rock with 20 - 30 percent sand in it. Squeegee covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep per ton, the same coverage as sand.

Squeegee is the material sized between sand and pea gravel. While some arenas and roundpens add up to 50 percent squeegee, most of the time it is a better idea to start with 25 - 30 percent.

The amount of sand or squeegee needed to achieve average depths is as follows.

  • Coverages : All Crushers Fines;
    Class 1 Structural Fill Dirt, Sand, Squeegee & Pea Gravel covers 100 square feet (10 feet x 10 feet) 2 inches deep.
    Class 6 Granite Roadbase covers 80 square (8 feet x 10 feet) 3 inches deep or 60 square feet ( 6 feet x 10 feet ) 3 inches deep.
  • The ground should be graded with a slight downhill slope to help with drainage.
  • Most sand and squeegee is delivered in 15 ton truck loads.
  • The delivery price is the same whether you get 12, 13.50 or 15 tons delivered.
  • You will have to decide, based on your budget, if its is less expensive to buy a little more than you need and get a full truckload so you'll have a little extra either for the arena or roundpen in the near future or only buy as close as you can to the exact amount you need.

To Order the Correct Amount of Material

Measure the length and width of the area to be covered. If you don't have a tape measure, walk the length and width of the area. Figure each full step as 2 1/2 feet. Get the total square footage of the area by multiplying the length by the width.

Example: 120 feet long by 60 feet wide = 7200 square feet
1 ton of Washed Sand covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep.
For every 2 inches of depth you will need 72 tons of Sand

Please note: This is only a rough indication of the amount of material you may need. Actual dimensions may vary due to irregularities in soil types and established rough grade.
