Crushed Stone

Crushed stone is an extremely popular material for residential products such as landscaping and
driveways. Unlikely Crushed Gravel, Crushed Stone is man-made and is a combination of natural stone
including tap rock, granite and limestone. It is crushed to achieve the jagged edge aesthetic of gravel.
Parts of its appeal for homeowners is its versatility as far as different sizes, colours and more which can
help achieve their desired aesthetic or style. Due to it having a combination of different materials, it can
be considered more aesthetically pleasing to some because it doesn’t simply have a uniform tone or
colour. It may be slightly more expensive then Crushed Gravel but is generally considered a more
economical alternative to other products like a concrete driveway. Price the price difference usually
comes down to homeowners’ choice in the size, colours and amount needed.

Crushed Gravel

Like Crushed Stone, Crushed Gravel is a very popular rock-based material. It is naturally made and is
formed from large rocks which have eroded over time, creating smaller rocks. One of the differences it
has from Crushed Stone is that it is typically smoother and rounder due to its long-term erosion.
Crushed Gravel is usually made up of a combination of gravel and stone dust, also available in various
colours and sizes. It is popular for driveways and landscaping, but it’s also lighter which makes it popular
for construction sites too. It is typically the more affordable option for both commercial and residential
projects but may be more difficult to achieve the desired style or aesthetic, with Crushed Stone being
the more versatile in that regard.
