WARNING!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!! NOT SAND!
5 dollars for 3/4 bag of rock. First and last buy from homedepot for not taking this seriously. You cannot trust this brand saying it's good for paver base unless you want to decorate your garden. I bought it just to end up with tons of rocks. And homedepot is not exactly responsive in regards to complaints like this. They should have better service and discuss with their source vendors. This is beyond ridiculous advertising incorrect products description!!

    Exactly as described
    This is a great product that i have used on several small jobs at my home and for customers of mine. So far, all i have had is a good experience with this product. Packs well and works as intended for the first or “base” layer.

      Full of Rocks
      The bags that I purchased were about 1/3 rock and 2/3 sand. The pictures of it on the web site do not show rock. The description on the bag does not say sand and rock mix. I have used paver base over the years and have never seen a bag so full of rocks. Usually, there are no large rocks and minimal pea gravel sized rocks. When I called HD about it they said that's how it comes and they cannot control their suppliers. Worst answer I've ever gotten. I had to use it as I was in the middle of a job with paid workers and could not stop to return it as the HD person said. This is ridiculous.

        This is NOT stone dust. This is NOT paver base. This is construction debris run through some sort of grinder and put into these 50lb bags. You will find some debris dust, but mostly large chunks of brick, rocks, plastic, wood grade stakes, and some metal.... Seriously disappointed in this transaction. I bought 100 bags, and tried to work through appriximately 25 bags, before giving up and loading the other 75 bags of this GARBAGE ( two pick up truck liads ) back onto my truck. I was refunded for the 75 I returned, but was told "yeah that stinks, can't help with the other 25 bags" even after showing the service desk rep a couple pics of this junk... DO NOT buy this junk....

          A bag of rocks
          The contents don't look anything like the picture above. It's mostly a bag of rocks with some fine brown dirt mixed in. A lot of the rocks are over 2 inches in diameter so have to throw them away if you only want a 2-inch base.

            Paver base contains silica sand, and safe handling requires an N95 mask. Very dusty! And also contains big stones
            Well I learned something. This product is basically mine tailings from quartz production. Many workers die from working around this product without a proper N95 respirator mask. silica sand causes lung damage and cancer. It is not safe for do-it-yourself patio builders like me to go raking this stuff. I bought 25 bags for my pathway project, because I didn’t have enough DG (my backyard is closer to a hard slab of granite) to set some leftover flagstone onto a path. Not only was each bag full of large stones and unground mine bits making it unsuitable for its stated purpose, but just dumping the product from the bag sent up a cloud of fine gray dust. Alarmed, I read the bag for the first time, and learned an N95 mask is recommended and saw the printed warning to avoid inhaling this dust. Researching further, I decided to return the bags I hadn’t yet opened. Home Depot could have made this a lot more clear to customers. I’ll certainly be reading material specs more closely in future.

                old stock hardened
                All 35 bags looks like hardened cement left over so hard to break, hard to level. Ordered another 75 bags and was fine. Will be returning the rest.

                  Used this as a base for a paver patio. There were a lot of larger rocks in excess of 3-4 inches in the mix which made getting the base somewhat level before and during compacting difficult. Once compacted with a place compactor, it seemed to do it's job and made a really nice base. Finished the project with landscaping fabric, leveling sand, and polypropylene paver base panels before adding bricks. So far everything is holding together. Other than the size of some of the rocks, the paver base is working as it should. I'm not sure I could have hand tampered this stuff.
