Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if granite is suitable as a hardscape rock?

I really hope it is as I have an endless supply of the stuff... I work for Lafarge aggregates and have the Mountsorrel quarry 5 minutes down the road.

I can get anything froma 3 tonne rock to pea shingle!

Comments apreciated

Granite is igneous if I remember rightly? So would think it would be fine. Its not a lime or sand stone so should inert and OK in the tank.

BTW which Lafarge site do you work at? I've been to quite a few of them with my job!

EDIT - could look really nice is a tank. Be different too.

If you could get me some granite cubes that are about 2cm cubed I'd be your best friend for a while :lol: I've had something in mind for about 6 months, but can't really find what I'm looking for...

Cubes would be near on impossible to find, especially if you want then pretty uniform. The granite is blown from the quarry then literally tipped in to a giant pestle and mortar so its totally random how it comes out.
