What are “Fines and Minuses”?
“Fines” is the term used to describe the crushed rock. “Minuses” is the sandy dirt like parts of the material.
What do the terms sized, screened, and minus mean?
These terms refer to the size of the decorative rock, as defined by the largest piece which would fit through a screen of a pre-determined size. The terms also help to denote the approximate amount of fines present in a product. For instance, the term “sized” can signify up to 1–20% fines in the product, whereas “screened” can mean 20% to 60% fines in the product, and when we visualize a product described by the term “minus,” we know it will have 60% to 80% fines.
What is Rip Rap?
Think of rip rap as large stones with angular shapes, larger than gravel but smaller than boulders. Rip rap can vary in size from about the size of a softball to as large as approximately 10″ to 12″ in diameter. The average is usually from about 3″ to 8″ in size. One ton of rip rap will usually cover an area of 35 to 40 linear feet, spread 3′ wide.

Tell me more about flagstone!
There are five basic categories of flagstone: regular select, thin select, patio select, coping, and slabs.
- Regular select is a grade of flagstone characterized by pieces of stone approximately 2′ by 3′ in surface area. Thickness is between 1″ to 1 ¾”. It is generally used in outdoor patio applications.
- Thin select is a grade characterized by pieces of stone approximately 2′ by 3′ in surface area. Thickness is 1″ or less, but not usually less than ½ inch. It is generally used in indoor flooring applications, but may also be used in the same applications as regular select with proper installation techniques.
- Patio select is characterized by pieces of stone that are less than four square feet in surface area. Thickness is between 1 and 2 inches. The pieces are generally the leftovers from making regular select.
- Coping is a category of flagstone pieces used as edging, generally used as edging around pools. Coping usually ranges in thickness from 1 ¾” to 4″.
- Slabs are larger pieces of flagstone used for signs, tables, and other custom applications.
Now let’s go over color shades. Remember that flagstone is a natural stone and therefore colors may vary slightly, but as a general rule you can use this as a guideline:
- Rosa is generally a dark purple-pink, with some golden tones. Also known as dark pink.
- Light Rose is usually a mixture of pinks and tans. Also called Light Pink.
- Peach will have a mixture of pinks and golden tones in it, but not as dark as Rosa.
- Buff is generally a mixture of tan and gold tones. It is also called Buckskin or Apache.
- Classic Oak normally has a white to beige-white tone, with some hints of pale green.
- Sedona Red is generally a dark red to red-orange. This is one of the softer flagstones.
