Lilycan Toppings

A replacement for Lilydale Toppings. Unfortunately Lilydale is no longer produced. This is the closest copy and customers have had good results blending it with the old when topping up.

Grey Crushed Granite

This is the easiest to use. If you have a landscaping project that could use a light grey colour, this is what you need.

Crushed Rock B Grade 20mm

A great money saving alternative. Depending on what is quarried at the time (as it can vary) it can really look good. It is probably the best crushed rock, gravel aggregate for a driveway, so you really should come and have a look at what is available.

Granitic Sand or Crushed Granite.

  Provides homeowners with a lot of flexibility in terms of their driveway design preferences.

A key advantage to working with loose fill materials like crushed granite is that it’s easy to create interesting shapes. All you have to do is imagine the layout and fill it in with the desired stone aggregate materials.

Crushed granite is also great for constructing a unique driveway because of the many different colours available. The colours associated with granite can accentuate other landscaping features and will work well with a wide range of natural edging materials for added beauty.

Different Varieties.

We stock four varieties including, Tyabb Brown, Lilycan, which is a replacement for Lilydale , which is no longer produced.

A 20mm crushed rock which is mainly used for under road bases, concrete slabs and as base for laying pavers. However it is also a cheaper alternative and can look great in the right landscaping situation.

We also have a 5mm Grey colour crushed granite which we find to be the easiest to use – it screeds and levels out very easily and will pack super hard. However, when choosing which material to use, the easiest product to use may not be the best product but a product that suits and enhances your landcaping design.

Weeds.

As a side note, a lot of people attest that crushed granite will stop any weed growth. Some people even suggest laying weed mat underneath. As someone who has a lot on his own property I can tell you this is not the case. The weed seeds will grow in the dirt which gathers on top and grow right down through the rock. So please be aware that it is a great cheap, easy to lay product but it will still require weed killer to be applied every 12 months or so.

Just a Thought.

A little thought should also be given to existing colours of your house, surrounding landscaping and neighborhood character.
