Raleigh Wash Rock
The Raleigh Wash Rock is a cut rock, frequently called gravel, that is lighter than our other cut rocks. This rock has a variation of colors depending on the location of the rock vein when it is mined. Due to that variation of color, we advise ordering all of the needed materials at the same time. In addition, it is a good idea to visit the sales yard to see what colors are currently represented.
This rock comes in size #57, which are 1 inch in size, and pea gravel, which are ⅜ inch in size.

Most standard pick-up trucks (ex. F150) or single axle 5x8 trailer can hold 1 yard because of the weight.

#78/Pea gravel: driveways or walkways.
For french drains it is recommended to have at least 4 inches of clean rock on top of the drain pipe.

When using #78/ Pea gravel for a walkway or driveway, it is advised that you used 2-4 inches of depth to provide coverage. However, more than 4 inches is not recommended as it could cause difficulty walking or parking on.
