What is decomposed granite?

    Decomposed granite is a type of surfacing material that is made up of small rock fragments that have weathered and decomposed over time. It is often used as a landscaping material for paths, driveways, and outdoor living areas.

    How is decomposed granite installed?

      Decomposed granite is typically installed by first laying down a layer of landscape fabric to prevent weeds from growing through. Then, a layer of decomposed granite is spread over the area and compacted with a plate compactor to ensure it is level and stable.

      What are the benefits of using decomposed granite?

        Decomposed granite is a low-maintenance and cost-effective material for landscaping projects. It is permeable, allowing water to drain through, and can be easily customized to fit a variety of design styles.

        Is decomposed granite eco-friendly?

            Can decomposed granite be used for a driveway?
