Gravel is the material of choice when it comes to driveways, pavements, and parking lots in rural areas. However, gravel is very uncommon in some areas. If you’re planning to get a driveway installed in your home and the area is large, then gravel is the way to go because it is more affordable compared to concrete.
Gravel is a term used to refer to loose rocks and stones that are smaller than cobble, but the particles are larger than sand. Sizes of gravel vary between 0.1 inches to 3 inches in diameter. Gravel is often confused with natural stone, but we will explore the differences below.
At A Plus Affordable Asphalt our focus is not just asphalt and concrete; we also offer natural stone and gravel driveway installs in New Bedford, Carver, Raynham, Fall River, Bridgewater and other areas in MA.
One of the commonest misconceptions when it comes to gravel driveways is that gravel and natural stone is the same thing. Many driveway companies use these two raw materials in driveway projects as well as paving and landscaping.
Crushed stone is manmade and its main component is natural stone in most cases. Some of the other materials used in crushed stone are granite, limestone, and tap rock. Gravel, on the other hand, is a natural material that is made wholly from natural stone and rocks. Gravel is made when large rocks are eroded over time. As a result, gravel is available in different colors that depend on the color of the natural stone from which it was formed.
Aside from the fact that one is man-made and the other natural, another difference between these two is that gravel is lighter than crushed stone, and hence easier to install. Further, gravel has a more rounded shape as opposed crushed stone, which is sharp and diagonal.
