Washed Concrete Sand-see photo H. Washed Concrete Sand is more coarse than Mason Sand and more fine than Filter Sand. In addition to using concrete sand in mixing concrete it is also suitable for using in sand boxes because it is cleaner than the other sands yet still maintains some of the packing characteristics of sand.

Bank Run-See photo A. Bank run is gravel removed from the bank or ground and delivered directly to you. It is not a crushed material and has not been processed. The aggregates found in bank run are a mix of the native soil and will vary between dig sites depending upon the glacial deposits in which we are excavating. Bank Run is most frequently used as a base layer or filler in driveways and other parking areas because of its lower cost.
Modified Bank Run-See photo B. Modified Bank Run is gravel that has been run through a crusher to break up the larger stones which results in aggregate material 4” and smaller. Typical uses of Modified Bank Run include top dressing driveways and other parking areas, it can also be used as a base layer in driveways but is a bit more expensive than Bank Run.

Crushed Bank Run-See photos C and D. Crushed Bank Run is gravel that has been crushed to create aggregate material 1 1/2” and smaller. It may also be referred to as Item 4 material. Processing Bank Run through the rock crushers results in a more uniform product. It packs well and is often used as top dressing driveways and other driving/parking areas.

Surge Stone-See photo E. Surge Stone is produced when crushed gravel is piled from a conveyor belt and the larger (2”-8” diameter) stones roll to the bottom edges of the pile. Surge stone is used for drainage and erosion control by slowing and spreading the flow of water over the ground surface rather than eroding the surface soil. It can be placed in drainage ditches and at the bottom of swales to assist with erosion control.

Washed Screened Sand-See photo F. Washed Screened Sand has the finest particle size of our available line of sands. It is often used for the base layer for pool liners and for animal bedding on farms. It is the least expensive of our washed sands.

Washed Mason Sand-See Photo G. Washed Mason Sand is a bit more coarse than Washed Screen Sand and is used to mix with mortar when working on masonry projects.

Washed Filter Sand-See photo I. Our Washed Filter Sand has been approved for use in septic systems by the Tompkins County Health Department. It is the coarsest of our sands and is most frequently used during construction of private septic systems.

Washed #1A Stone-See photos J and K. These stones have been processed through a rock crusher and a wash plant. Typical sizes of #1A’s are between 3/16” and 5/16” in diameter. They can be used in septic systems, concrete, and blacktop/asphalt on streets and roadways. It can be used in place of pea gravel, but it is crushed so it will have rough edges rather than the smooth edges of pea gravel. It is easy to shovel making manual labor easier, but is easily picked up on the soles of shoes so it is generally not recommended for top dressings on driveways or parking areas.

Washed #1 Stone-See photos L and M. Washed #1 stones have been processed through a rock crusher and a wash plant. They have typical sizes measuring between 5/16” and 5/8” in diameter. #1 stone is used in concrete and blacktop/macadam. It can also be used in french drains, but is often mixed with #2 stones for this application. It is also relatively easy to shovel.

Photo O. #2 Stones close up view.                                 
Washed #2 Stones-See photo N and O. Washed #2 stones are processed through a rock crusher and typically measure between 5/8” and 1 1/8”. #2 stones can be used in drainage applications, septic systems, concrete, and is sometimes used in making blacktop/macadam. These stones do not pack well so they are not typically recommended as a top dressing for driveways, but some people use them for back-filling around buildings and in parking areas.

Photo P. #1 & #2 Mix.                                 
Stone mixes of #1 and #2 stone are available and are often used for drainage and back-filling around buildings.

Limestone Crusher Run-Limestone Crusher Run is crushed limestone that we do not produce at our Dryden quarry, but we do bring it to our pit in bulk to sell to our customers. Limestone is a sedimentary rock found in localized deposits throughout the northeast that is widely used in construction projects. Limestone Crusher Run is produced first by blasting native rock into more manageable pieces and is then processed through a rock crusher to make aggregates 1 1/2” and smaller. Since it is comprised of solid sedimentary rock rather than gravel, it has a lower sand/silt content yet still packs nicely for a top coating on driveways. Many people use it to help reduce dust in driveways if they choose not to pave their driveways.

If you have any questions about the aggregate products we sell please feel free to call the office at 607-844-8196.
