Exterior Service Disconnet pad area

Need info on floor area in front of Service Disconnet outdoors in open area. I dont need clearances, but information on accecptable material that can be used in front of disconnect, i.e. concrete, dirt, pavers, or rocks.

 

I am questioning a contractor who placed agregates ranging from 1 to 4 inch in front of the disconnect.  That area is also surround by 4-6 inch rock.  There is no path to the disconnect through the 4-6 inch rock and then you stand on the 1 to 4 inch rock to either turn on the disconnect of trn off the disconnect. I am told no requirements other than flat area and using ROCKS does not seem Flat to me when they move and could casue a safety issue.

 

where can I find written information or direction on the " pad area " requirements?

thanks  Rick
