USES FOR HARDCORE GRAVEL
Our hardcore gravel is ideal for use on the following projects:
- Road Base: Hardcore gravel is commonly used as a base material for roads and driveways. Its compact nature provides a stable foundation for the overlying asphalt or concrete.
- Driveways and Parking Areas: It is an excellent choice for creating driveways and parking areas. Its ability to pack tightly helps in creating a solid and stable surface that can withstand vehicle traffic.
- Pathways and Walkways: Hardcore gravel is often used for creating pathways and walkways in gardens, parks, and other outdoor spaces. It provides a firm and durable surface for pedestrian use.
- Foundation Fill: It can be used as a base material for building foundations, providing a stable and compacted layer on which the concrete foundation can be poured.
- Landscaping Projects: Hardcore gravel is used in various landscaping projects for creating defined borders, retaining walls, and as a base for features such as patios and outdoor seating areas.
- Construction Fill: It is used as fill material in construction projects where a compacted, stable base is required, such as filling in low areas or building up the ground level.
- Trench Backfill: When utility trenches are dug for the installation of pipes or cables, hardcore gravel can be used as backfill material to provide support and stability around the utilities.
- Erosion Control: In some cases, hardcore gravel is used to control erosion on slopes and embankments due to its ability to resist water runoff and provide stability.
- Septic Tank Installation: Hardcore gravel is often used as part of the installation process for septic tanks. It helps with drainage and provides a stable base for the tank.
- Railway Ballast: In railway construction, hardcore gravel is used as ballast, providing stability to the tracks and facilitating drainage.
When using hardcore gravel for construction projects, it’s important to compact it properly to ensure a stable and solid base. The specific application and the required load-bearing capacity will determine the thickness of the hardcore layer needed.

Where It Comes From
Our aggregate materials are obtained from our quarries in Stamford and Rutland, and other surrounding areas.
Most quarry material is naturally formed, so shape, size and colour will vary. It all comes down to the screening process to achieve uniform and consistent material properties. Aggregates are as good as their processing. Through mining, crushing, washing and separating, these processes only, when delivered skillfully with the best machine technology and workforce, can produce a quality aggregate. And that success relies on our industry’s hardworking men and women and our great team here at Bullimore Aggregates.
