Decomposed GraniteThe basics: Decomposed granite, or DG, is a granitic rock that has weathered to the point of breaking into very small pieces and silt-like particles.
Pea Gravel The basics: Pea gravel is a small, rounded rock that got its name because the rocks are about the size of a pea.
River Rock The basics: River rocks are larger than pea gravel, typically 1 inch and larger in diameter.

Our Lab won't even walk on it ;-) I added fine stone dust as a test in a small area with the idea to fill-in the void between the river rocks and it seems to make it firmer. I love the look and color of the crushed granite and am considering using it in my landscaping. I like to use this rock decoratively in the garden — to topdress container plantings, to puddle around boulders and to line borders of patios and beds. Not sure I will be doing this on the pathway part because I'm planning to install flag stones 3 inches apart for that section.
