Decomposed granite is classification of rock that is derived from granite via its weathering to the point that the parent material readily fractures into smaller pieces of weaker rock. Further weathering yields material that easily crumbles into mixtures of gravel-sized particles. Decomposed granite resembles gravel or coarse sand.
It comes in a sandy texture and a reddish-tan hue, resembling the granite where it came from. It has practical uses that include its incorporation into paving and driveway materials, residential gardening materials in arid environments, as well as various types of walkways and heavy-use paths.
Loose Decomposed Granite drains well making it an ideal mulching material for garden beds and other landscaped areas. In addition, it can be used to cement particles together. Just add a soil stabilizer to bind the Decomposed Granite to hillsides and other high traffic areas such as pathways, patios, walkways, and driveways.
Decomposed granite will give your yard, deck, or patio a classic, rustic charm. Furthermore, this type of natural stone works great as a topdressing around dried-up plants or as ground cover. Regardless of your project, we have what you need at KK Ranch Stone & Gravel.
