Find Out Why Decomposed Granite Could Be The Answer To Your Landscaping Needs

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 2 May , 2018

One of the most versatile landscaping materials you can use around your home or business is decomposed granite. Whether you want to dress up your driveway, flameproof a fire pit, establish a pathway or merely use it for ground cover to create an outdoor living area, decomposed granite has many uses.

In this issue, we’ll talk more about decomposed granite, and why it makes sense to have a professional San Diego landscaping company to install it for you.

What is decomposed granite?

It’s much like granite, only finer. The effects of natural weathering and erosion break granite into small ¼” bits that resemble sand. It typically can be purchased in various colors, including brown, gray, red, black and green.

There are various types of decomposed granite.

  1. Loose decomposed granite, which is ideal for garden paths, play areas, etc.
  2. Stabilized decomposed granite with aggregates that are more suited for use as pavers or decorative concrete.
  3. Decomposed granite with resin, which provides a surface similar to asphalt.

How can I use decomposed granite?

As stated above, there are a host of effective uses or decomposed granite. While it will deter weed growth to an extent, you will most likely have to employ some sort of weed killer to keep them completely under control.

The available colors and texture of decomposed granite allow it to blend in very well with other materials. Also, because it has such an effective natural look, it can easily blend into the background.

Keep in mind that decomposed granite will break down over time and will need to be replaced. However, as it breaks down, it will actually blend into the soil and won’t cause any trouble.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
