Fiber reinforcement is a mesh containing millions of polypropylene fibers that disperse throughout the concrete mix. They are chemically inert and have no absorption properties. They do not affect the mix design.
Synthetic fibers provide a secondary reinforcement to both strengthen concrete and increase durability. This is done by controlling internal cracks caused by drying conditions. Benefits of using fiber reinforcement are:
Controls plastic shrinkage cracks, and restrains crack growth
Bonds with the fresh concrete and distributes stress more evenly
Reduces evaporation of water by lowering the bleed rate
Improves freeze-thaw durability
Reduces chloride ion and salt migration
Fiber does not take the place of wire mesh. Wire mesh helps control cracks after they are formed, while fibers help prevent cracks from forming in the first place.

Road gravel is what you see along the shoulders of roads. Road gravel consists of sand, rock and clay. A gravel surface is more resistant to washing out in a heavy rain than dirt or sand.
Road gravel, recycled blacktop, and recycled concrete all have excellent compaction for driveways.
Top soil is the upper layer of soil where most of the nutrients for plants are found. Our topsoil is obtained by scraping the surface of excavated areas. It is then pulverized or screened to remove large rocks, sod and debris. It can be used in the yard, for raising grade levels, or for potting and planting. It is easy to work with and will grow grass.
Black dirt is darker in color than top soil. The black dirt is excavated from lower areas. It is then pulverized or screened to remove large rocks, sod and debris. It can be use in your yard for potting and planting. It is easy to work with and will grow grass.
