Recycled concrete aggregate or rca , is very good material to use under paving stone patios. You just have to make sure that the percentage of cement in the bland is high because when concrete is crushed in to gravel lot of dirt is mixed with it. Usually is graded and if you want very good quality crushed concrete you would have to get state approved crushed concrete. Which it will cost a lot more, and if you find crushed concrete at 1 or 2 dollars per yard that is not really good material because it contains allot of dirt and possible grass crushed with it and the reason is cheap, it is because nobody wants it. Recycled concrete is best used for a base over virgin ground, and it is recommended to use 6 to 8 inches for pedestrian areas and 10 to 12 inches for vehicular areas. Around a swimming pool at list to cover the overcut of the excavated hole poured concrete with reinforced rebar attached to the pool walls is best and recommended. You have come to the right place.
