Photo - Decomposed Granite (DG) Pathway Construction

First start with a pile of decomposed granite
with stabilizer mixed in.

Lay the DG down 1.5 inches at a time and
compact with either a roller or a gas powered
compacter like the one shown here.
        

Next, hose down the pathway and let it dry. 
  

Then do another layer and repeat the hosing down process.

A good DG pathway should be about 3 inches deep and
be installed in layers to form a solid pathway.
