Aggregates
Aggregates are a granular material used in construction. The most common natural aggregates are sand, gravel, and crushed rock. Aggregates can be used in a wide variety of applications, including concrete and asphalt production, sub-base, capping and drainage systems, as well as for decorative purposes.
Lawn Sand
Lawn sand is used for leveling ditches and for covering exposed roots in lawns.
Playground Sand
Playground sand is used in public playgrounds, under pools, and other recreation applications.
Masonry Sand
Masonry sand is used in brick and block mortar, patchwork, and finish work on concrete walls.
Drain Rock
Drain rock is a clean, crushed stone that is ideally used as trench backfill or drainage filter aggregate. It is available in multiple sizes.
Pea Rock
Pea rock is commonly used for drainage and as a base for concrete slabs and footers.
River Rock
River rock is used as a base cover for fountains, rock gardens, aquariums, vases, and trees.

Topsoil
Used in landscaping applications, topsoil is the uppermost layer of soil, usually the top 15–20 cm. Topsoil has the highest concentration of organic matter and microorganisms, and is where most of the Earth's biological soil activity occurs. Plants generally concentrate their roots in and obtain most of their nutrients from this layer.
Potting Soil
Potting soils are soil-less mixes used as the medium for growing plants in pots.
