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.

Kafka Granite’s naturally occurring decomposed granite and crushed stone are screened to a 1/4” minus size, allowing for a firm surface that compacts well, while retaining permeability. Our nearly 40 colors of pathway materials make for beautiful and organic walkways, nature paths, bike trails, courtyards, patios, and more. Read more ➞
At Kafka Granite, we have the ability to pre-mix our Standard Pathway Mix with organic stabilizing binders to create an even more durable natural pathway. Compared to the traditional pathway mix, the stabilized mix better resists the erosive effects of weather and traffic, while retaining a natural look and feel. Read more ➞
For an entirely waterless and dustless decomposed granite pathway solution, Kafka Granite combines their Standard Pathway Mix with an engineered wax polymer. For extremely high traffic areas or steep slopes, our Wax Polymer Pathway Mix trumps all other pathway solutions. Read more ➞

What are the different options of pathway materials and their best uses?
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 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.
