Providing Limestone for Landscaping
Quality Limestone Rocks for Landscaping
Protect Your Client’s Property With
Limestone rocks are large, angular boulders that can be used as seawalls to protect properties. Commercial and residential landscapers need limestone rock of varying sizes to design a shore protection retaining wall that minimizes erosion. As a leading supplier of sand and stone products, Pontotoc offers high-quality limestone for the landscaping industry. Our rip rap for retaining walls effectively channels water runoff and currents away from a property.
Erosion is when water flow or wind removes soil, rock, or other materials from the earth’s surface and transports it to another location. The effects of erosion are costly, including degradation, increased flooding, and the loss of soil nutrients. Limestone landscape rocks prevent erosion by forming a seawall and absorbing energy from currents, water runoff, and waves.
However, installing a rip rap shoreline is more than simply dumping limestone. Landscapers have to grade the shore to create a stable surface and then place a layer of gravel before adding the large anchor stones. Once the large stones are in place, smaller rocks are used to create a channel and form a protective layer around the shoreline. Pontotoc offers various sizes of limestone for landscaping, ranging from three-inch rocks to boulders. We also provide crushed stone and screening to fill any gaps in your shoreline erosion strategy.
Along with forming an effective erosion control solution, limestone has other applications for the landscaping industry. These include:
We understand the importance of limestone in the landscaping industry. Landscapers need a steady supply to protect their clients’ homes, which is why we’ve developed a truck loading process that only takes seven minutes.
Each truck’s license plate is assigned an automated bill of lading that’s scanned upon arrival. This allows our staff to view the cargo manifest while your driver enters the pickup line. Once the limestone is loaded onto their truck, the driver gets the load weight and drives back to your facility. Our industry-leading system provides multiple benefits for customers, including:
Driver safety is a top priority. Our process keeps your driver safe by allowing them to stay in their truck the entire time.
