D.G. Doesn’t Always Mean Weed Free
Decomposed granite, commonly referred to as D.G., is a small, fine material that is best used for ground cover on walkways, pathways, driveways, and garden trails. Their sizes range from 3/8” inches down to rock dust and this mixture of sizes allows for the correct blend of large particles “strength”, medium sizes “space filler”, and fines “binders”, to come together for a stable surface once wet and compacted. They can be the preferred option for ground cover not only because of their attractive design and style but also because of the low maintenance they provide. Because of this, D.G. is an excellent option to install as a xeriscape ground cover where little-to-no irrigation is needed, especially crucial for dryer, drought-prone areas.
