Been taking quite a few trips to the local rock yard lately. In fact, I will be seeing them quite a bit in the coming weeks.
The Wm. Dickson Co. is a gravel pit as well as a place where you can recycle big chunks of concrete (cheap!) and these guys feed it into a machine the size of our house and then it spits out little 1 1/4" minus pieces. Nice. That is what we are putting as the base to our walkways and patio. After we compact it, we cover it with landscape fabric, edge it with bricks and fill in with 5/8" minus gravel.
Just wanted to share the crazy photos. Don't be fooled by the scale. The scoop on that loader holds about 3 tons of the crushed concrete at a time.
