A reddish burnt orange cast gives the decomposed granite material the semblance of adobe brick. A perfect ally for red-toned flagstones.
Red with a hint of gold
Decomposed granite, abbreviated as “DG” and resembling fine gravel or coarse sand, is formed from broken down granite rock. Loose DG drains well, making it an ideal mulching material for garden beds. To cement the particles together, add a soil stabilizer to bind the DG on hillsides and in high traffic areas such as patios, walkways, paths and driveways. With dozens of colors available, a decomposed granite material like Desert Gold or Southwest Brown may be the missing piece in your landscaping project.
