Sierra Silver Grey Decomposed Granite A Decomposed Granite Material Central California quarry shipping bulk throughout California and in supersacks where requested. This is an outstanding decomposed granite material with a unique color and texture for decomposed granite. The very high quartz content and contrasting colors of white, silver and grey quartz pebbles and fines in this material make it a superior ground cover material for landscapes with grey or silver grey color tones are wanted. Due too its superior characteristics we also use this material for our Silver Bocce Ball Court Blends, for both the Dry Climate and Wet Climate mixtures. Even by itself it makes a great less expensive alternative to crush oyster shell mixes for Bocce Ball and Petangue court surfaces.
Decomposed Granite and crushed stone products are commonly used for decorative walkways, patio & outdoor living areas, planter beds, light duty driveways, water wise landscaping, dog runs, utility and side yard areas.
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.
