Stabilized Decomposed Granite and D. G. Materials Decomposed Granite is an elegant addition to any landscape. Primarily used for paths, walkways, and driveways, this sophisticated material is a striking tan color that packs extremely well. Its rustic, natural appearance is a beautiful complement to landscapes and provides a stable base that can be treated with polymers to set the color and reduce track-ability, or can be left as is for an organic, high-end feel.
Most of the stabilizer materials are organic binders that are the most widely used pysllium husk binder used in the United States. Psyllium husk is an organic polymer that acts as glue that binds or stabilizes decomposed granite or crushed aggregates. Common applications of Stabilized Decomposed Granite and Crushed Stone Fines include hiking trails, bike paths, fire lanes, garden paths, patios or any other application that want a natural looking surface.
Whether for driveways, pathways, patios, utility landscape areas or to surround trees, crushed stone or decomposed granite can be a versatile material that prevents weed growth, maintain even soil moisture and makes an outdoor space more appealing. These two are not the same material, though. Decomposed granite has a natural coarse look to it, while crushed stone products tend to be more flat and have a higher amount of fine material. Crushed stone products, granite, sandstone, limestone and others offer a greater array of natural colors to work with than most true decomposed granite materials. Decomposed Granite Per Ton As a general rule of 3/8" or 1/4" of crushed stone or decomposed granite material will cover a little over 100 square feet of an ground area at a 2-1/2" depth. Decomposed Granite Per Yard As a general rule 1 cubic yard of 3/8" or 1/4" of crushed stone or decomposed granite material will cover 125 square feet in a 2-1/2" inch layer. A cubic yard of moist crushed stone fines or decomposed granite material weighs more or less 3,000 pounds.
