Our Stabilized Pathway Mix
consists of Decomposed Granite or Crushed Stone blended with non-toxic, non-staining water activated Stabilizer binder. This binds and locks the crushed stone screenings to provide a durable, permeable, natural aggregrate surface. These surfaces substantially resist the erosive effects of weather and traffic compared to traditional gravel materials. With a natural look much less obtrusive than concrete or asphalt, a Stabilized surface blends in well in natural settings, making it popular for use in Botanical Gardens, Green Roofs, Nature Paths, Greenways, Golf Course Cart Paths, Trails, or any environment where a more organic feel is desired.
Activation of the Stabilized Path product is accomplished by thoroughly soaking the pre-mixed Decomposed Granite or Crushed Aggregate material in place and then compacting. Once dry, this surface will reabsorb a limited amount of water and remain porous, yet will retain it’s firmness, even in wet conditions. Being a natural aggregate, a small amount of maintenance is recommended to keep a Stabilized D.G. or Stone surface looking as fresh as it did after installation.
The benefits of a Stabilized Pathway do not end with aesthetic appeal and the ability to help control storm water runoff. They also help reduce the heat island effect (when you are surrounded by heat absorbing materials like asphalt and concrete), and provide a handicap accessible surface solution for natural environments.
