## How much does a load of DG cost?

Decomposed granite is a low-cost material–from \$40 to \$50 per cubic yard is the typical price range–and can be used as a border for a more expensive paving material.

How much does stabilized DG cost?

Stabilized decomposed granite costs about \$185 per ton. The price for this type of granite is much higher than that of simple crushed granite because the supplier must add and mix a stabilizing agent with the granite.

### What is decomposed granite used for?

Decomposed granite, as a crushed stone form, is used as a pavement building material. It is used on driveways, garden walkways, bocce courts and pétanque terrains, and urban, regional, and national park walkways and heavy-use paths.

Is DG more expensive than gravel?

The best part about decomposed granite is that it’s relatively inexpensive compared with other solutions such as concrete or pavers. Cost typically statrt at \$40 to \$50 per cubic yard for locally available options, whereas more exotic colors will be higher. It’s also durable and easy to maintain.

#### How many tons of DG do I need?

explains that you have to first measure and record the length, width and depth of the area in feet. Then, multiply the length by width by depth. Take that total and divide it by 27. The resulting number equals how many cubic yards of crushed granite you will need.

How much DG do I need?

How much decomposed granite do you need? Multiply the length of the area to be covered, in feet, by the width, in feet, which gives you the area’s square feet. Then multiply the square feet by 0.25 feet (representing a minimum depth of 3 inches, converted to feet), which gives you cubic feet.

## Do I need stabilizer for decomposed granite?

This is an ideal stabilizer because it requires little to no maintenance, does not fail over time, and has excellent erosion control. It is also permeable, allowing water to easily pass through; since it does not contain any oils, resins, polymers, or enzymes, it will not cause water pollution.

How thick should DG be?

We recommend getting enough DG to achieve a depth of 2″ to 3″ throughout your walkway, and 4″ if you are covering a whole driveway.

### How many stones does it take to cover 200 square feet?

If the area to be covered is 200 cubic feet, for example, each bag of rock covers 4 cubic feet ,so you will need 50 bags of landscape rock to fill the space.
