Pearock 1/4″ – 7/8″

Pearock or Pea gravel is a type of small, rounded rock that is commonly used in construction projects and landscaping.  The color of pea gravel can range from natural earth tones like beige, brown, and gray to more vibrant colors like white or red, depending on the source and region.

Uses of Pea Gravel in Construction Projects:

Landscaping: Pea gravel is used in landscaping projects and as a decorative element to create pathways, driveways, and patios. Its small size and smooth texture make it comfortable to walk on, providing an attractive and natural look to outdoor spaces.

Drainage: Pea gravel is an excellent material for drainage applications. Its porous nature allows water to filter through easily, preventing water accumulation in areas such as garden beds, around the foundation of buildings, or in French drains. It provides effective water management while minimizing soil erosion.

Backfilling: Pea gravel is often used as backfill material in construction projects in trenches or excavated areas around pipes, underground utilities, or retaining walls. The small stones create a stable and permeable fill that promotes proper drainage.

Erosion Control: It can be used to create retaining walls or as a protective layer to minimize soil erosion caused by water runoff.
