Aggregate Base Course
Typically composed of crushed rock. Aggregate Base Course is used for the layer of material directly under asphalt or concrete. Generally “ABC” is sized as 1/4" or 3/4" but can be crushed smaller by request. ABC can be used for driveways, paths, roads and anything that needs a hard surface.
Ag Lime is a soil additive made from pulverized limestone. Ag Lime increases the pH of acidic soils and provides a source of calcium and magnesium for plants. Ag Lime also improves the water penetration and improves the uptake of major plant nutrients. It helps farmers increase their yields.
Rip Rap is typically used as armor for shorelines, streambeds, pilings and steep slopes from erosion. It can be in various sizes from 6" to 48", depending on the use.
Salvaged asphalt from roadways, driveways and highways. Can be taken to a crusher and made into sized ABC. This works great for residential driveways and saves the material from being disposed of by burying.
Salvaged concrete from highways, sidewalks, curbs and pipe. Can be taken to a crusher and made into sized ABC or select crushed material. This is a great option for municipal streets and highway reconstruction.

Screened Fill Sand
By running the fill sand through a 3/8" screening plant to guarantee a constant uniformity. There are multiple uses for this sand such as a leveling material, beaches, and volleyball courts (white sand), and granular fill, to name just a few. The fill sand can be screened to varying sizes for different uses.
Many dairy farmers in the area use this screened white sand for bedding their cattle. Typically the material being screened is the same as regular screened sand.
Typically the upper portion of native soil. It is generally the top 2" - 8" and is highest in organic matter. There are many different specs for Topsoil. Topsoil can be custom mixed and screened by request.
