D. G. Stabilizer Products
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. 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.

There are 2 primary groups of stabilizer materials;
Pysllium binder agents, dry powders that are blended into the decomposed granite or crushed stone fines prior to installation of the materials. The material we sell is effectively or literally the same as every other pysllium binder agent sold or used by all other companies in our industry. D. G. Stabilizer & Binder is a highly effective material building stabilized decomposed granite and crushed stone pathways that can certified ADA compliant. We do not think this is needed for residential decomposed granite installations but that is just our opinion. Crushed Stone Fine materials used in residential pathways may benefit greatly for the use of D. G. Stabilizer and Binder since crushed stone fines do not bind up naturally like true decomposed granite.

Liquid Polymer agents, these are "liquid glues" that are blended into the decomposed granite or crushed stone fines during installation of the materials. When the finished material dries it becomes very hard. G-3 Pathway Stabilizer and TerraKoat area the leading materials in this group in the industry.

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.

As a general rule of 3/8" or 1/4" of crushed stone or decomposed granite material will cover a little over 90 square feet of an ground area at a 3 inch layer.
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 110 square feet in a 3 inch layer. A cubic yard of moist crushed stone fines or decomposed granite material weighs more or less 3,000 pounds.
