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.
