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.

To construct your Deco pathway, follow these simple steps:

  1. Calculate how much material you will need. If you are not sure how to do this, click here.
  2. Prepare the area by marking out the pathway with spray paint.
  3. Dig out the soil and remove.
  4. Smooth the area out.
  5. Add a layer of road base such as crusher dust. This will create stability in your path.
  6. Cover the path with Deco granite.
  7. Add a fine layer of cement mix. This will make your path more durable.
  8. Use a Whacker Packer to pack down the granite.
  9. Sprinkle with water and allow to set.

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