In the southeast, we enjoy mild conditions for several months a year. Unfortunately, we are also no stranger to seasonal weather extremes, and heavy rainfall year almost year-round. It’s an inconvenience for most homes and businesses, but for many, it can be much more serious. Properties that are adjacent to lakes or rivers can quickly experience rapidly rising water levels, and if they are located at the bottom of a large hill, they run the risk of having to clean up large amounts of mud and debris after a flash flood.

The good news is that an investment in Rip Rap Stone or Armor Stone is a great way to protect your investment. Arkansas Aggregates is the leading provider of rock products in the southeast, and we are always a phone call or mouse click away when you are looking for gravel, 3/4 crushed stone, railroad ballast, or any other products. For properties adjacent to water or hillsides, we recommend protecting your investment with rip rap or armor stone. Here is a quick look at the benefits of each product:

Rip Rap Stone-Rip rap stones are an average of 10”-18” in diameter, and are the most affordable way to protect yourself from erosion. In addition to stabilizing a shoreline or hillside, they also work great for drainage ditches and earthworks. We will always be glad to help you make sure that you order the right quantity for your needs, and will ship it to you right away by truck, rail, or barge.

Armor Stone-Armor stone can be used for many of the same purposes as rip rap, but the key difference is that it is cut to order. Many of our clients use armor stone to create a unique, rustic look for their properties that seamlessly blends into its surroundings. Whether you want to create a walkway, retaining wall, water feature, or even a poolside grotto, we can provide the rock that you need cut to your exact specifications!
