Decomposed Granite for Ground Cover and Decorative Paving

Decomposed granite has two major applications. First, it can be used as a long lasting ground cover that will not discolor or break down over time. If you are considering using decomposed granite as a ground cover, you may need to consider what plants you will be using this ground cover with, as decomposed granite may affect the alkalinity or acidity of your soil.

The other common application for decomposed granite is for a base on which you can lay decorative stone pavers. When mixed with a stabilizer, decomposed granite can provide you with a level and stable surface on which to put down your decorative paving stones. If you are interested in using decomposed granite as a paving stone base, please get in touch with one of our trained expert staff members who will be able to tell you the proper mix of decomposed granite and stabilizer.
