Using a DG Stabilizer with Decomposed Granite

DG Stabilized Pathway

If you’re looking to create a natural looking surface for a pathway or a yard the chances are you’ve looked into several types of crushed stone alternatives. However, you’ve probably also read about the negatives: washouts, dust and puddle formation. The simplest solution for this problem is to use a good stabilizer with stone aggregates.

We believe the best decomposed granite stabilizer (that works just as well with other aggregates, too) is Organic-Lock. It’s an all natural, self-healing, strong and water permeable binder that will require minimal maintenance while providing you with a highly functional and beautiful surfaces.

Paver Problems

The impact that the environment has on a pathway effects both its appearance and its longevity. Certain pathway materials, such as asphalt and concrete, as susceptible to cracking and crumbling. Other, such as gravel and certain aggregates, can suffer from washouts.

Challenges with weather, closeness to rivers and surrounding nature all contribute to fast deterioration. The resulting potholes, muddy spots and puddles require ongoing maintenance and repair. 

Finding a Viable Solution

Using decomposed granite, or other similar aggregate, with an effective pathway stabilizer offers a better solution to these problems. Stabilized stone aggregates do not degrade, crumble or crack. They are durable and easily repairable. Landscape architects also love the natural texture and character that this product offers. The end result is a low-maintenance, beautiful and stable pathway. 

The difference with decomposed granite begins with the gradation of the material used. Angular stone with sharp edges allow it to easily lock together when compact. With a proper gradation profile, the smaller particle sized will effectively fill the voids between the larger one. Adding an effective pathway stabilizer to these materials it binds the aggregate together for a stronger end result. 

The best pathway stabilizer not only provides not only consistency in its results. It also offers lower maintenance as it ability to absorb water helps it to resist erosion. Using a superior binder such as Organic-Lock provides high quality results using a naturally sourced ingredients.
