We supply and install a range of products relating to aggregates, stone and topsoil.
Please check out our decorative gravel page for details of our range. We can supply and lay decorative gravel.
Our aim is to provide a friendly competitive service providing everything from blocks of rock armour stone, all crushed aggregate supplies to sand, gravel and topsoil, planings and removal of inert waste to landfill. We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously, we only use licensed sites for disposal of waste, we operate modern trucks with engines complying with the lowest emission level standards currently in force.
There isn’t really anywhere we can’t supply, although airside at an airport would require extra insurance to be arranged first.
One type of aggregate we supply is Gabion stone – this is a clean stone, typically 5” to 8” in size, which is normally filled into what are known as gabion baskets. These are metal, mesh cages often 1m long x 1/2 m wide and high. They can be wired together to make a retaining wall or a dividing wall and can be several metres high if need be.
Sub base or 6F2 and 6F5; these are both quarried and recycled products. There are very few recycling sites in our immediate area, but more as you travel down towards Tyneside, however we are situated between three quarries which produce high quality Whinstone products. It is often cheaper supplying these than collecting and hauling a recycled product from 20 miles or so away, and the quality is guaranteed, while quality can vary from site to site with recycled material.
Sand and Gravels
Sand and Gravels
Concrete sand (sharp sand) – as well as brown and yellow building sand.
Single Sizes – which are used for drainage backfill. The size of the gravel used in dependant on the size of the drainage pipe being used and the application. Pipe sizes at a house building project typically use 10mm or 20mm gravel, while backfilling a filed drainage pipe is often done with 20mm or 40mm river gravel. Large quantities of these single sizes are used as the base material for concrete, typically from a ready-mix plant and the production of tar in all its different specifications from a tar coating plant.
