Landscape Supplies Portland, Oregon
Meisel Rock Products has many Portland, Oregon area rock quarries which provide sand, crushed rock, round rock, pea gravel, and crushed drainage rock for landscaping projects. Our most popular material for landscaping is sand and gravel. Many of our customers come to us for landscaping rock materials for patios, whole yard renovations, water features, and larger rocks for accent features.
Larger rocks can be used as accent pieces mixed in the landscape with plants to give a natural feel to the outdoor space. Larger sized rocks can also be used as stepping stones for stairs like those seen in the image above. Larger landscaping rocks are often used for backyard focal points and are favored by many home owners for the low maintenance required to maintain apposed to using plants as focal points. Larger landscaping rocks are also used for ponds, rock gardens, in rock wall construction and retaining wall construction. If you live in the Willamette Valley you are probably familiar with the clay soil found near any body of water. A lot of our customers purchase sand to mix with this soil to make it more appropriate for growing plants. Depending on your location and the size of your order we may offer delivery for your Portland area landscaping project. Contact us at our main office to find out if delivery is an option.
Round Rock & Pea Gravel
Round rock and pea gravel are most often used for walkways and paths as seen in the image above. They can also be used as ground cover for areas of the landscape where plant growth is unwanted. Round rock comes in a number of sizes and once the average size is below 3/8ths of an inch in diameter it becomes pea rock or pea gravel. The color of round rock and pea gravel is usually more appealing than the crushed rock variety and has fewer jagged edges making it ideal for places people will be walking.
