Clean Chip – All You Need to Know
Clean chip is a versatile, beautiful landscaping material. This page covers what clean chip is, what it is used for, and how you can obtain it for your next project.
About Clean Chip
Clean chip is made up of crushed rock. East Valley Sand and Gravel provides it in different sizes, including 3/4″ and 1 1/4″. Clean chip differs from gravel in that gravel is generally made from natural processes, whereas clean chip is produced with crushing machines.
Uses of Clean Chip
Clean chip has a wide variety of uses, both for home and industrial applications.
For home-improvement projects, clean chip is an attractive way to add drainage, borders, and other enhancements to your property. For example, it can be an eye-catching alternative to mulch in gardens, in flowerbeds, and around trees. Driveways can also benefit from clean chip, both for its aesthetic and drainage properties. The 3/4″ size is particularly useful for areas that need high drainage capabilities, such as along foundations or behind retaining walls. The 1 1/4″ size can be used for pathways and other landscaping applications.
Clean chip is also useful in industrial and heavier construction settings. The 1 1/4″ variety of clean chip, for instance, works well for surface or subsurface areas around industrial facilities, shops, and barns.
