Want a landscaping surface that looks natural, drains well and can be compacted? Decomposed granite is your material
Decomposed granite (DG) is the natural result of granite rock's breaking down into small, loose, powdered gravel. Common uses for DG are pathways, gardens, sports courts and nature trails. DG has excellent drainage and does not absorb heat like concrete or asphalt does. Decomposed granite is typically mixed with a stabilizer, saturated with water and compacted to keep most of the loose gravel dense.
Decomposed granite has a loose appearance on the surface, but it can be packed down and hardened with a stabilizer for high-traffic areas.
Decomposed granite can be messy. When contained between two walls, the loose gravel and mud do not spoil the landscaping.
