Pea Gravel, Drain Rock, and Sand for Playgrounds
The National Safety Council recommends that your playground fill be at least 12 inches deep. Washington Rock can deliver enough pea gravel, drain rock, or sand to meet these guidelines.
Pea Gravel for Playgrounds
Pea Gravel is a popular choice for playground fill. Like the name suggests, pea gravel pieces are roughly the size of peas.
We can also supply 7/8” Drain Rock if you want a larger product. Check out a playground before/after photo for inspiration.
Playground Sand and Sandbox Sand
If you prefer sand, we suggest Fairway Top Dressing Sand or C-33 Sand.
Our Fairway Sand is a finely graded, double-washed product. We use it in our sandbox at promotional events, and it has been popular with parents.
If you’re looking for a less expensive product, C-33 Sand is coarser than Fairway Sand and is less likely to track into the house on shoes. Both products are a brown-gray color. We don’t offer black or white sand because they don’t naturally occur in our area.
Finally, Ultrafine Sand is a 50-50 sand-silt blend that makes a great shaping sand for building sandcastles or sand sculptures. It also makes an excellent volleyball court sand and beach sand when wet.
