There are many great things to appreciate about living in the southeast. The people are friendly, the food is great, and there is so much scenic beauty to enjoy throughout the year. Unfortunately, our region is also subject to many seasonal weather extremes, including heavy rainfall and flash flooding, and if we fail to take the proper precautions, flooding can cause extensive (and expensive) property damage.
The good news is that our team at Arkansas Aggregates is here to help! We have been the leading provider of rock products throughout the southeast for over two decades, and each year we produce and ship over two million tons of rock products. Our rock is mined in Little Rock, AR from a major outcropping of nepheline syenite, a rock similar to granite. No order is too big or too small, and if you ever have any questions, we are always a phone call or mouse click away. Here are some of the rock products that we carry that can help you protect your property from erosion and water damage:
Gravel and fill rock-We carry multiple grades of gravel, including base 57 and base 67 stone, which is perfect for French drains. A layer of gravel can also protect your outdoor planters and flower beds from both erosion and weeds.
Rip rap rock– If your property is adjacent to a shoreline or hillside, rip rap stones are ideal. Standard rip rap gradation is about 10”-18,” and the stones lock together to protect the ground underneath them from rising waters or flash floods.
Armor Stone-One popular product for erosion control is armor stone. We can custom cut boulders to order in many shapes and sizes so that you can protect your shoreline in style. But it doesn’t stop there! Armor stone is also perfect for retaining walls, walkways, and water features.
