How To Make A Deco Garden Path

2 min read

Sometimes it is great to be able to improve the look and functionality of your garden without embarking on a major landscaping project that costs a huge amount of money.

A design element such as a simple, neat pathway can really add interest, colour, texture and definition to your garden. And if you use a material like Deco Granite (Decomposed Granite), you can even complete the job yourself.

Deco is usually a brown/orange colour and is quite a fine material. You can compact this product, but it is not as stable as road base or crusher dust. For this reason it is often used as a finishing product on top of road base.

To construct your Deco pathway, follow these simple steps:

  1. Prepare the area by marking out the pathway with spray paint.
  2. Dig out the soil and remove.
  3. Smooth the area out.
  4. Add a layer of roadbase such as crusher dust. This will create stability in your path.
  5. Cover the path with Deco granite.
  6. Add a fine layer of cement mix. This will make your path more durable.
  7. Use a Whacker Packer to pack down the granite.
  8. Sprinkle with water and allow to set.

Deco pathways are attractive, durable and an excellent DIY project for the handyman.

We sell all of the products you will need to complete your path and ensure it lasts the distance and looks fantastic as well.

Until the end of October 2013, we are offering a discount on our Whacker Packer hire. Normally, we hire them out for $65 per day. Until the end of the month, you can hire one for $45 for the day.
