Recycled Contractor's Rock has many use's both as driveway bottom course, the entire driveway material, as well as retaining wall and drainage line applications.

You should check your local ordinance's for the rules on acceptable materials in your area.

Driveways - Because there is a small amount of concrete on the rock, it seems to somehow interlock when spread on very sandy or clay soil driveways. It will stabilize almost any surface. Most customers then have us spread dump recycled asphalt or concrete over it. Some customers just use the recyled concrete rock as the entire driveway material.

Retaining walls and drainage applications - 1"-1/2" recycled Contractor's rock can be a less expensive option than gravel, because it is approximately 50% the price of gravel and in most low water flow/pressure residential situations it will work just as well. Check with your city/county for allowable materials and uses.


The best shovel for installing landscaping rock, crusher fines, roadbase, and structural fill dirt is a square nose (flathead) shovel. The square nose makes it easier to get a shovel full compared to a round point shovel. Round point shovels work better for digging holes. To shovel mulch the best option is a scoop shovel. These can all be purchased new or used on several local and national web sites.

The best rake for all types of landscape material leveling is a bow rake. You can often find these at garage sales as well as on the Internet.
