Sand & Gravel
Balboa Brick & Supply Corp provides loose materials, such as sand, gravel, landscaping rocks and decomposed granite to help make landscaping visually more appealing. Sand and gravel also provide a barrier against erosion, better drainage, and a firm foundation where needed. Whether you’re building a volleyball court, a sandbox for your children, or laying a gravel path, our friendly staff can help you choose the right product or landscaping materials for your landscaping project.
The advantages of using sand & gravel in landscaping are:
- Sand and gravel both make excellent and effective bases.
- Sand and gravel are much more cost-effective than other materials.
- Sand and gravel are the best material choices for a lawn-free garden.
- Gravel helps control the ground temperature of the soil preventing weeds.
We offer a large variety of sands, gravels and rocks such as:
Most commonly used to cover walkways or driveways, this aggregate packs tightly and resists shifting once in place. It also works well as a base for patios.
Volleyball sand is screened and washed to remove gravel, small pebbles and dust. Volleyball sand is finer and more distinct in color compared to other sands. It is designed to absorb impacts from knees and elbows as players dive for the ball.
Cushion sand is commonly used under patios or newly poured concrete to help level the area and bring it up to grade. Cushion sand packs very well compared to other sands.
Brick sand is the most common sand used in masonry projects. The sand is finely screened and been washed to reduce imperfections.
Coarse sand is washed and screened at the quarry. Concrete sand is ideal for mixing with cement and aggregate to create concrete.
