Pea gravel is popular for many outdoor projects because of its small size and smooth texture. It's excellent for creating walkways, patio areas and even as a base for garden beds. Pea gravel comes in various colors, including shades of brown, gray and white. Alliance Stone carries Chattahoochee, Indian and North Carolina Pea Gravel.
Our TN River Rock 4-10 is a quality gravel product for a dry creek bed or water runoff areas in your landscaping. This popular choice is larger than pea gravel and comes in various sizes and colors. Our river rock is also great for creating a natural-looking pathway or for use in a water feature.
Medium Slate Chips
Slate chips offer a bolder form of gravel that still fits most landscaping needs where ordinary gravel is often used. Our medium slate chips can be as large as 1.5"-2.5" inches in size and excellent for creating pathways and flower beds. We also offer mini slate chips that are 1/2"-1" in size.
