Most of the gravel options in Georgia are sourced from granite quarries. Our Georgia granite is typically a great quality of rock. Many different sizes are available from large rock, to sand, and a mixture of various sizes. Granite Gravel is typically gray in color and angular in shape because of the crushing process. It is considered manufactured gravel and GDOT considers gravel to be a coarse aggregate in their specifications. This type of gravel is very functional for uses. The most tonnage of gravel is used for road construction and ready-mix concrete. However, our most popular uses for gravel outside of the large-scale projects are for residential and commercial driveways. The other projects needed gravel include drainage (french drains) and base material (patios, masonry, concrete foundations, and retaining walls).
River Rock and Pea Gravel are the naturally occurring options of gravel RSI provides. River gravel or river stones are weathered naturally, not crushed, and sized with different screens to produce a uniform product. River Rock products are a decorative option that add beautiful earth-tone colors that will not decompose like other ground covers. River Rock and Pea Gravel also make an appealing look for driveways and even other uses such as concrete with exposed aggregate. Even though the quality of River Rock and Pea Gravel is exceptional, the cost as compared to granite gravel limits its use in many applications. This is not the case in areas throughout the country, specifically outside of Georgia, as rock deposits vary and costs are related to availability and transport.
