Use Recycled Road Base Aggregate
Road base aggregate makes an ideal recycled base material. It is often used again as road base, but can also be used for construction fill, trench bedding, and more. Course and strong, recycled road base aggregate provides a solid foundation component anytime you need a good base material.
Consider Three-Quarter-Inch to One-and-a-Half–Inch Aggregate
This type of aggregate has a consistent range in its size and coarseness. Although it can be used as a concrete component, it also makes a perfect material for good drainage. A popular choice for retaining wall drains, drain fields, and flowerbeds, this type of aggregate offers a predictable and consistent coarseness to provide dependable drainage and prevent erosion.
Utilize Recycled Sand Aggregate
Sand aggregate is finer in texture than other options and is often used as a composite ingredient in concrete to add strength. The fine, uniform texture of recycled sand aggregate also makes it a good bedding material.
Aggregate materials provide crucial drainage and strength reinforcement. With the aggregates from A-1 Ready Mix Concrete, you can save money on materials for your landscaping, concrete, or pipe bedding work while helping the environment at the same time.
