Decomposed Granite Gravel

Living Earth - Gravel - Decomposed Granite - Click to view larger imageDecomposed Granite is the ultimate for driveways and pathways. Mined in the Texas Hill Country, this material has small, coarse granite chunks and lots of fine material. When installed as a driveway or pathway, the fine material takes a hard set, while the coarser material rises to the surface. It all stays in place, yet quickly drains.

Decomposed granite is a good surface for walkways, driveways or as a well-drained surface in pet kennels. Using decomposed granite provides a natural look to any surface and many people are able to install it themselves.
