what are the best sizes of crusher run gravel for driveway

HXJQ engineers are often asked to make a recommendation regarding the type of gravel we would use on a driveway. There’s a couple of considerations such as a drainage consideration and an aesthetic consideration.

Typically, there is one or two products crushed by concrete jaw crushers that you would use, the first being three-quarter inch road base which the particle sizes are 3/4 inch, right down to quite a fine sand or powder and this product will compact very nicely, it may have to be the top dress over the years depending on the weather conditions and the driving conditions on your driveway

Another product that is maybe a little more aesthetically appealing could be the three-quarter inch clear crush which is exactly what it says it does not have any particles in it, it is just three quarter inch angular gravel and another choice could be a half inch clear crush as well, in my estimation, the half inch clear crush tends to knit a little better together and does not spread as much you know, with heavy traffic. Some people may opt to have three or four inches of road base down first and have it leveled and compacted and then top dress with a three-quarter or a half inch or you can just leave the three-quarter inch road base as once its been properly compacted

This is 1/2 inch clear crush gravel, it’s used commonly for either pathways and/ or driveways. it’s a nice size and I find it quite aesthetically appealing once its been washed and the dust is off. it looks quite good.So, those are some of your choices for driveways in terms of gravel. Sure there exists other choice for driveway such as driveway paved with ashalt concrete or only with concrete

Limestone, dolomite and granite are the most common types of rock processed into crushed stone. Limestone and dolomite account for 71% all crushed stone; granite makes up 15%. The remainder is sandstone, quartzite and other types of rock

Limestone is the most common used crushed stone because it’s widely available and suitable for many different applications. It’s the primary ingredient of cement, the main component of asphalt and concrete, and a base material for highways, rural roads and buildings. Applications outside of construction include agricultural lime for soil neutralization.

Production of crushed stone has three stages: Primary crushing to break down the stone to a manageable size; secondary and tertiary crushing to render the rocks into sizes specific to their applications; and screening to separate the crushed stone for further processing or for finished products sizes
