DeGe Pathway Binder & Stabilizer 500 Pounds
100% Natural Organic Decomposed Granite Binder & Stabilizer
Blends with 3 to 5 cubic yards of D. G. material

Decomposed Granite and Crushed Stone Fines are blended with various binders and are primarily used for paths, walkways, and driveways to provide a more firm or hardened stable surface that once cured, set the D. G. material in place and reduce track-ability. 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 require a natural looking surface. It is our experience and that of landscape professionals that in most circumstances the active ingredient in DeGe Pathway Binder and Stabilizer offers the best value for creating hardened surfaces, ease of use for mixing and being environmentally friendly.
Eco-friendly, VOC-free, safe around plants and animals
Create beautiful, natural surface pathways and patios
Excellent for commercial and residential D. G. paving applications
Reduces or eliminates dust from D. G. materials.

Easy to use dry flowable powder, that is non toxic.
Works best with 1/4" minus or 3/8" minus decomposed granite and crushed stone fine materials
Fantastic results by mixing 9 to 15 pounds of binder per cubic yard of D. G. material.
Product Specifications and Uses
DeGe Pathway Binder & Stabilizer 500 Lbs is a dry flowable stabilizer for decomposed granite (DG) crushed rock fines pathways and planter beds. It provides cross-linking stability and reduces dust and tracking of loose materials on residential and light commercial foot traffic applications. G3 is environmentally friendly, VOC-free, and safe for use around people, animals, and landscaping. Primarily used for paths, walkways, and driveways, this material packs extremely well.
The best results from mixing any binding agent with rock materials comes from obtaining a detailed "sieve analysis" from a soils laboratory. The reality in the landscape industry is that this rarely ever happens. The next reality is that overwhelming amount of binder blended material is done on the ground through "loader mixing." There are few companies at select locations using advanced pugmill blenders to get exact ratios with their binders to rock material but that is the exception, not the rule. Just the hauling of material from another region for blending at fix site is usually cost prohibitive. So using a small or large tractor loader to mix the dry stabilizer is the common practice at nearly every quarry, landscape materials yard or job site.
Rates of Use
DeGe Pathway Binder & Stabilizer mixes with any decomposed granite or crushed rock fine or even top soil. The standard industry practice on rates of use vary from 7 to 12 pounds of binder per ton of earth material. Ironically the more pure and higher quality the decomposed granite is, the more binder is needed, so Champagne Rose Decomposed Granite will require 10 to 12 pounds of binder per ton of material, where as Black Hawk D.G. will only 7 to 9 pounds of binder per ton of material.
The best results from mixing any binding agent with decomposed granite or crushed rock fines will come from making a test sample and making any increases of the DeGe Pathway Binder & Stabilizer material based upon the cured hardness of the test sample. We suggest a 2 foot x 2 foot framed box made from 2" x 4".
