What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Decomposed Granite
Decomposed granite has a loose appearance on the surface, but it can be packed down and hardened with a stabilizer for high-traffic areas.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rockin' Landscape
Here's a mix of decomposed granite (top) and pea gravel (bottom), separated by a line of blue fescue (Festuca glauca).
