What is pea stone?

Pea stone consists of small pebbles that are approximately the pea-size (up to 3/8 inch or 9.5 mm). They are smooth like river rocks but much smaller.

Some people call "pea stone or "pea gravel," an aggregate of crushed clear stone (usually granite but could be limestone) with the particles of pea-size. We also have such aggregate and call it HPB (High-Performance Bedding).

Pea stone usage

Pea stone size, smoothness, and attractive look make it widely used for different purposes. A few examples of the application:

  • decorative and functional ground cover (like in landscaping or for dog runs)
  • drainage material, especially if it is visible
  • pad layer under heavy objects, like hot tubs

Tips for using pea stone as a ground cover:

  • put landscaping fabric under it to prevent weed growth
  • install edging or wall that will keep pea stone on the place
  • introduce other decorative or functional elements: flagstone/ other paving materials, accent rocks, plant containers, garden furniture or water features
