Decomposed Granite Pathway Materials
Kafka Granite Pathway Materials are used where a firm pathway is required for pedestrian or vehicular traffic, but a natural look, unlike hardscape surfaces, is preferred. We offer decomposed granite pathways in three variations: Standard Pathway Mix, Stabilized Pathway Mix, and Wax Polymer Pathway. These products are an affordable and aesthetically pleasing alternative to concrete, asphalt, pavers, and other hardscape surface materials.

Standard Pathway Mix is ideal for low-traffic areas that call for a permeable and easy-to-manage pathway solution. This option doesn’t include any additives, but is crushed to the perfect size to warrant optimum compaction and drainage.
Stabilized Pathway Mix includes our aggregate mixed with Organic-Lock™, an organic stabilizing binder. The addition of an organic binder enhances the durability of these pathways while not compromising its natural quality. These pathways remain permeable and work well in areas with slightly higher pedestrian or vehicular traffic, or in areas that require wheelchair accessibility.
Wax Polymer Pathway Mix is the most durable pathway material offered by Kafka. Our crushed stone, granite aggregate, or recycled material comes premixed with an engineered polymer that completely eliminates mud and dust. The addition of engineered polymer makes this an impermeable pathway, but this is the ideal solution for areas that are steeply graded.
