A proper D. G. surface does not move underfoot like sand or gravel, but its porosity allows water to penetrate to the soil below. That aspect makes DG or crushed stone fines a good paving material around trees and shrubs.
The standard application process is to spread about 2" of DG or crushed stone fines, water it thoroughly then compact it with a water-filled sod roller, hand tamper or use a vibra plate it to settle. Then repeat the process with at least another 1" to 2" layer for extra depth for stability.
