How do you install decomposed granite?

Answer

Decomposed granite is a cheap material for patios, walkways and driveways. To install decomposed granite, first determine the size and shape of the intended surface with a tape measure and lay out the path with ropes. Pack loose dirt at the bottom of the expanse until it is hard and flat and cover the bottom with weed barrier fabric. Spike through the corner to hold it down. Fill the excavation with five inches aggregate and rake it over the site in other to compact the rocks into solid base. Add two to three inches of decomposed granite over the aggregate. Stamp the granite until it feels firm under your feet. Finally secure metal or plastic edge restraints around the outside of the site with a hammer and nine inch nail spikes.
