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.
