Do you need AMS, aggregate suppliers Bournemouth? | Avon Material Supplies

Choosing the best aggregates in Bournemouth

If you are carrying out any hard landscaping or exterior construction tasks, it’s likely that you will need aggregates of some description for your project. Aggregates can be purely decorative, or an integral part of common construction tasks, which include sub-bases, drainage work, roadways and pathways. Regardless of the application, you’ll be looking for high quality, affordable aggregates in Bournemouth.

This is where Avon Material Supplies (AMS) comes in. As one of the leading suppliers of construction aggregates in Dorset for over 25 years, we have supplied the aggregates used in a number of high profile projects including the development of The Hilton Bournemouth, and various improvements to the Dorset road network.

Types of aggregates

We offer a wide variety of Bournemouth aggregates, but some of our most popular include:

  • Topsoil alternative – available in 10mm or 20mm options, our affordable topsoil alternative is screened and works just as any other topsoil would. It is ideal for flower beds and repairing lawn damage due to its great drainage properties.
  • Washed sharp sand (grit) – used by numerous construction companies and tradesmen, our washed sharp sand is used for laying paving and slabs, as part of concrete production, in lime mortar and more.
  • Type 1 recycled – an excellent type 1 limestone alternative used in road and path construction as a suitable sub-base, for hardcore, backfill, trench fill and more.
  • Type 1 limestone – our type 1 limestone works as an extremely stable sub-base so is used for car parks, highways and highly trafficked areas where a primary material is a requirement.
  • Shingle – we offer 10, 20 and 40mm shingle that is ideal for non-deocorative parking areas and paths, general landscaping and drainage applications such as pipe bedding and soak-aways.
  • All in ballast – our all in ballast is a mix of coarse sand and washed gravel that is commonly mixed with cement to produce a strong concrete for foundations and building bases.
  • Building sand – used by many construction industry professionals for bricklaying and pointing.
