Decomposed Granite or simply DG is an excellent decorative inorganic landscaping surface material. It can be used simply for ground cover areas, pathways and trails, filler for hardscape joints, and even driveway material. For the purpose of this article we are going to focus on the use of DG for ground cover applications. We have seen a recent explosion in the number of installations and search engine inquiries for decomposed granite. Many of the installations we see are wonderful and are holding up well after years of use. Unfortunately we are also seeing DG being used where it shouldn’t be and results in a failed installation where no one is happy with the outcome. Decorative Stone Solutions feels now is the time to let everyone know that DG is not the perfect product for every application and there are some basic truths regarding the Do’s and Don’ts of DG installs.
