How Much Does Decomposed Granite Cost?

Decomposed granite is a type of granite rock that has aged and is then fractured into smaller pieces or small chunks of weak rock.  Decomposed granite, in its crushed form, is often used for pavement and building material, but unlike granite, don’t confuse the two, because the two won’t be the same material since decomposed granite tends to have sharper edges and shapes.  This material is often used for driveways, gardens, trails and urban parks.

The price of decomposed granite depends on the quality of the rock, the amount of rock that will be purchased and the company selling it.
