Rocks
In line with other reviews. You get gravel and crushed rock. 1 bag of 12 was 3/4 drain rock and the other 11 were 3/4 clean crush. Lots of fines in the drain rock minimal fines in the clean crush. This actually worked in my favor, but was looking for the clean crush for the angular stone to lock during compaction for a base. Sacks come on pallets.Overall happy with this order.

    Perfect for landscaping!
    Bought this to do some drought friendly landscaping, arrived around 2pm on the sheduled delivery day. Looks just like the photos online, the driver asked where to leave it and was super polite. Would highly recommend!

      I used this gravel around concrete steps stones and it looks really modern. The gravel pieces are pretty uniform around 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch, and delivery was smooth and driver was friendly and placed the bags exactly where I wanted them. For this price, you can't beat how good it looks. When you need a large quantity like I did, it can be hundreds of dollars of savings.

      Be aware that rock can be different colors and sizes
      I bought 8 bags of this product for a shed pad I was building. Out of the 8 bags, 2 bags were great. The rock was clean and almost entirely 3/4". The other 6 bags had dirty rock that was a mix of 3/4" and smaller rock down to 1/8". You would think that for a single order, the delivery would consist of the same rock. Now I did not really care about the appearance of the rock since most of the pad is going to be covered by the shed but I really need the rock to be consistently 3/4" to make the gravel lock together properly. I went to the store to see if they could replace the 6 bags and they said they could not because I had it delivered. I am thinking of building a sifter to get rid of the small rock. See the picture below. The clean rock is on the left. The dirty rock is in the middle. The small rock is on the right. I felt that the description of the item on the website is misleading. It says it can be used for landscaping. I would not use the rock for landscaping since you might get the dirty rock and it would look terrible in landscaping. That being said, on the plus side, the price is good given the amount of rock. And it is convenient that the rock is delivered in bags. It avoids having a big pile of rock on the driveway. I was able to shovel the rock from the bag into a wheelbarrow.

      This is typically used as a building aggregate and is a 3/4" minus so there are smaller sizes throughout the product. The material is a 3/4 Crushed gravel and it sounds like you wanted a 3/4" Gravel which is more universal in size. Seems a bit odd as compaction is much better with smaller pebbles and fines in the material. The best would be to use a 3/4" Base for the best compaction rate. The description states that it can be used as a ground cover in landscaping, which it can and has been used in the past. Specifically for driveway's. It is unfortunate that it did not fit your specific needs for your project. Main

      This rock is clean and of excellent size within specs. The bag is easily loaded into my truck and easily unloaded (for my purpose) by shovel into my wheelbarrow with no mess.

      Did exactly what it’s supposed to do, just wish it was closer to 3/4” to lock into better.

        I used this product to make gravel walkways through my landscaping. It worked exactly as I anticipated.

        The gravel worked out to be exactly the right size and amount to fill a drainage area between the road and my driveway, while not impeding water flow.

        The gravel was as I wanted except for one bag that had quite a bit of sand and really small pebbles.

        This is a 3/4 gravel and not a base rock such as class II base which has fines that allow for compaction. Main

        The mix varies from bag to bag. Better consistency would be appreciated. Some bags had 70% sand and 30% rock others was 70% rock and 30% sand.

        Delivery was changed several times by HomeDepot. Wasted days having someone wait only to be notified of another re-scheduled delivery date. Very frustrating trying to speak to simeone only to be transfered or put on hold and then they would hang up on me.

        This is a place to review the product itself and the issues with any deliveries or customer service not associated with MSU is unwarranted. Main
