Decomposed Granite Materials Cost Per Cubic Yard
A cubic yard or often called a square yard of decomposed granite or crushed stone fines material typically weighs 3,000 pounds or 1-1/2 tons and will typically cost from 37.99 to 74.99 per yard depending upon where the job site is located, how many yards you purchase and how far away the quarry is.
1. Combining material and transport prices inflates sales tax fees to our clients, our method saves buyers hard earned money.
2. We handle materials from quarries from many regions and states and there are many factors that determine hauling costs.
3. Our primary customer is Arizona, California, Nevada and Texas and there so far is no easy way to calculate servicing all the locations in those states and the many other states we service through an e-commerce platform.

Stabilized Decomposed Granite

Stabilized materials are 50 to 100 percent more than non-stabilized materials. We are usually against the use of stabilized decomposed granite or crushed stone materials. This is because most stabilizers are not effective at what most buyers think the binding agents will do.

The amount will you need depends on how thick the coverage will be. The bare minimum is typically 2-1/2 inches for pathways and landscape ground cover. Most pathway and patio DG work is done at 3 inches deep and driveways and parking areas at 4 inches deep. It is important to remember that loose materials will compress down when properly compacted, for decomposed granite a loss of 25% is common.

Installation Costs

The costs of installing buying and installing decomposed granite are first tied to the type of decomposed granite you want and then the size and specifications of the project. Always figure that you are going to want at a depth of at least 2-1/2 inches of decomposed granite over the ground it is being applied to. Other costs are going to be;
Equipment to move and install the decomposed granite.
Labor
to move and install the decomposed granite.
Weed barrier or landscape fabric that goes between the ground and the decomposed granite.
Edging materials used to form up the parameter of the decomposed granite area. Edging materials are not typically used in "natural setting" designs, but edging materials of wood, stone, steel, aluminum or plastics are used and needed more focused or formal installations.
Equipment costs depend on the scale of your project. In most residential landscape settings a wheel barrow and vibra-plate compactor are more than enough.

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.

A proper DG 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 the last 1" to 2" layer for extra depth for stability.
