Pit Run Gravel
The name basically describes this aggregate. It is the raw gravel that is dug out of the bank of a gravel deposit. Tasmanian Gravel Ltd. is fortunate to be able to offer approximately 75mm (3”) minus Pit Run. This means, on average, the stones are 75mm (3” and down) to sand with some clay in the mix as well. Pit Run Gravel is one of the least expensive aggregate products and thus is used to build up grades that are significantly low (prior to ‘A’ or ‘C’ Base) and filling holes.
A 19mm (3/4 inch) crushed stone or screened aggregate with no additional clay added. Used for driveways, parking areas and walking paths. With no additional clay, the surface does not get as muddy as ‘A’ or ‘C’ Base when wet.

If you want the kids to have hours of fun in the sandbox and stay clean then this is the sand for you! Almost 100% of the clay has been washed out leaving a free flowing ‘beach type’ sand ( it’s the clay in most sands that leaves the deep ‘brown’ color on clothes and hands ).
