Decomposed granite (sometimes called DG) is a lot like gravel except more fine and stable because it compacts. Made from Granite fines, it has the appearance of compacted sand, so it looks very soft and feels soft underfoot. DG also has a polymer mixed in that binds it and lend to it's compactibility and weathering ability. It comes in a variety of colors such as tan, grey, green, buff. It is perfect for a small courtyard and can look very clean and modern. I particularly love it for garden paths or paths with floating stone pavers recessed.
Price: $40.00-$55.00 per cubic yard
