The following most commonly used aggregates are kept in stock at Elbridge, and available for collection, or delivery (minimum charge applicable).

4-10mm Shingle / Gravel – Also referred to as Pea Shingle. A mixture of rounded and angular gravel, varying in colour and shape dependent on source. Used in construction and domestic applications such as footpaths, pipe bedding, drainage, planting borders and hard landscaping.

Sharp Sand / Grit – A rough, graded sand with a higher percentage of larger grain sizes. This makes it more commonly used in gardens as it’s coarse open structure allows moisture movement from area to area.

Building Sand – Also known as soft sand due to its fine rounded particles and clay content. Typical use is to produce mortar for bricklaying and block work. These sands are supplied from various sources and care should be taken in matching existing colours.
