1’s and 2’s (Ones and Twos)

At Kipton Quarry, our sandstone aggregate, known as “ones and twos,” consists of medium-sized stones that are highly versatile and widely used in various construction and landscaping applications. These aggregates are typically used for projects that require both stability and drainage properties.

In construction, “ones and twos” are commonly used as a base material for roads, driveways, and pathways. The medium-sized stones provide a stable foundation that helps distribute weight evenly and support heavy loads, making them ideal for these applications. Additionally, they are often used in the creation of concrete and asphalt mixes, where their size and shape contribute to the strength and durability of the final product​.

For landscaping purposes, these aggregates are excellent for creating French drains, retaining walls, and erosion control structures. The angular shape of the stones allows for better interlocking, which enhances stability and prevents movement, making them a popular choice for such projects. Moreover, their natural appearance and size make them suitable for decorative purposes, such as garden beds and borders.
