How Much Decomposed Granite Do You Need

Gravel like decomposed granite (DG) is one of the aggregate needs you must determine when starting new landscaping, driveway or road construction projects.

Getting an estimate as close as possible to your gravel needs is important. You wouldn’t want to order too much and waste money and resources, or order too little and end up spending more by having to order another batch.

When it comes to ordering decomposed granite, there are a few factors you must consider to determine how much DG you need.

Here are Two Factors to Consider:

1. Dimensions

The measurements you need to determine before ordering your decomposed granite include length, width and depth (thickness).

Determining the depth of your project is especially important. Some projects like road construction, pathways or patios need thicker gravel.

2. Compacting

Decomposed granite must be compacted well to create an even, flat and stable surface. To ensure the surface is compacted well, you have to spread DG gradually and compact one layer at a time.

The thickness of decomposed granite decreases when it gets compacted. Make necessary adjustments in your measurements to cover the change in thickness.
