Working Side By Side with Local Shellfish Growers
Most landscape designers recommend that one yard will cover approximately 100 square feet at 2-3" depth due to its high surface area to volume ratio.
Oyster shell, primarily sun-bleached white and off white in color, breaks down in a way that makes the ground cover more compact and stable. It is supplied as either 3" or 1" minus, 1" clean crushed shell or oyster flour.

Application & Maintenance
Crushed oyster shell is a reliable and attractive alternative to asphalt and concrete driveways and you never have to worry about cracks. Cold and heat won't damage the shells and they don't develop ruts and holes.
If used on driveways or walkways we recommend a gravel base layers that is well compacted before the shell is applied. On application the crushed oyster shell requires good compaction to allow it to re-calcify and fuse into itself to make a hard, porous surface.
Our crushed oyster shell is commonly used as landscaping materials for patio and outdoor living areas, fire pits, walkways, water-wise landscaping, planter beds, driveways, dog runs, and many more uses.
