The team at Clarke’s Trucking and Excavating Limited & KZ Concrete has answered a few of the most common questions to help our clients in St. John’s and surrounding areas. You can also call us for more information.

  • What kind of gravel do you recommend for my driveway?
    We recommend Class A road gravel.
  • I have an above-ground swimming pool. What can I put under it for a base?
    We recommend fine sand.
  • What kind of material can I use in my dog kennel?
    For a larger dog, you can use ¾" washed stone. For smaller dogs, we recommend a smaller stone, like pea stone.
  • How much topsoil do I need for my lawn?
    The first question is – how big is your lawn? Does your city or town have any regulations on the topsoil depth for your property? We suggest the deeper, the better for grass root growth – at least 6 inches.
  • How much concrete can a mixer hold?
    All of our mixers can hold a maximum of 1 ¼ yards (equals 1m). However, you can purchase in ¼ yard increments.
  • Do I have to book a concrete mixer in advance?
    Yes. We recommend it strongly. Phone us and book your appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
