How To Make An Affordable Deco Granite Path

1 min read

Sometimes it’s 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.
