Aggregate and Stone
A lot of people are going to put both aggregate and stone into the same basket. We separate the two because of the fact that we can provide quality stone finishes. That is just the truth we are talking about stone we are referring to actual stone pebbles. When we talk about aggregate we are actually referring to what is commonly known as tiny rocks. That is by no means a scientific name of course. We hope though that in making this distinction you got a better idea of what we mean when we talk about one or the other.
The first thing that we are going to want to clear up is that this type of mulch is not going to be a big benefit for plants and flowers. Yet, they can be a great asset to the overall look and design of the area. We are pretty much going to have to make a mixture of soil and stones that are properly distributed to allow the plants to develop and the stones to show. Right off the bat, we can tell you that you are not getting tangible benefits from stone, but you are getting looks.
Aggregate For Concrete
Aggregate can actually be mixed in with cement and sand to create what is known as an aggregate finish on a concrete structure. Do we happen to sell the type of aggregate that is going to mix in well with sand and cement? Yes, we like to believe that we do! Although a cement mixer is a pretty tough machine we are not going to want large chunks of aggregate. That is just going to complicate the entire process. What we do want is to make sure that it can all be mixed in while keeping certain characteristics!
How To Know How Much You Need
This is one of the problems that people face with virtually all of our products. If you are a local customer we can actually head over to you and help you determine how much mulch you are going to need. The last thing that we would want would be to have you buy a whole bunch of products that you are not going to use. We have been in this business for quite a while so you can say that we have a pretty good eye for these measurements.
Aggregate For Playground Areas
Wood chips and other types of mulch, as well as aggregate, are well known for being used in playground areas. If we are honest about it they have fallen a bit out of favor with some customers. That being said, this is still an option that we are going to have for you. As we just mentioned in the last paragraph we are going to be able to help you determine how much aggregate you need. Whether it be for decorative purposes or in these cases to cover playground areas.
