Different Types of Gravel

Gravel is classified into different grades based on its size, shape, and texture, which determine its suitability for various construction and landscaping applications. The different grades of gravel serve different purposes, such as providing drainage, stabilizing soil, creating a base for roads and buildings, and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces. For example, larger grades of gravel are commonly used as a base material for driveways and roads, as they provide stability and support for heavy traffic. On the other hand, smaller grades of gravel are more suitable for landscaping and decorative purposes, as they offer a smoother texture and a range of colors to choose from.
