Gravel & Aggregates

Construction gravel and aggregate, or simply “aggregate”, is a broad category of coarse particulate material used in construction, including class 5 gravel, sand, twin cities driveway gravel, crushed stone, limestone gravel, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates.

Aggregates are used in construction and landscaping to provide drainage, fill voids, protect pipes, and to provide hard surfaces. They are also useful for water filtration. Water will percolate through a trench filled with aggregate more quickly than it will through the surrounding soil, thus enabling an area to be drained of surface water, useful in wet or marshy areas, or to provide a solid base in driveways, which have a tendency to be too soft for vehicle transit.

Aggregates for better foundations

Building a shed or summerhouse in your yard? When preparing the foundations, gaps and trenches may be filled with aggregate, because it is easier to compact than the original soil that was removed, resulting in a more solid finish that will support the structure. Aggregates generally are not affected by the weather as much as soils, particularly clay soils. This makes the structure more stable as the aggregates will not be prone to shrinkage, as much as soil.

Unpaved roads and parking areas may be covered in a surface layer of aggregate to provide a more solid surface for vehicles, from cycles to trucks. This prevents the vehicles from sinking into the soil, particularly during wet weather.

Wide portfolio of gravel and aggregates

KD Recycling provides a wide range of aggregates, from standard construction aggregates, in various sizes, to colored aggregates, for landscaping or driveways. The red limestone from the River Valley in Shakopee, or the buff limestone from the Minnesota River valley in Burnsville will both add character to any yard or driveway.
