Un-crushed coarse grey wacke-derived fluviatile gravels with a small proportion of coarser-grained slightly to moderately weathered greywacke sandstone clasts. It has grey-gold tones, reflecting the look of a typical NZ River and is very suitable for the mulching of gardens and other decorative uses such as the creation of natural water features. It is also great drainage, RipRap and Gabion Rock.
All the grades have permeability coefficient of 82ms plus which indicates drainage capabilities greater than crushed rock. The grades over 80mm are ideal for Gabion baskets & Rip/Rap.
