Granite is a popular natural stone material used in everything from countertops to paving stones. It is not only the slabs of granite that are useful; even the dust left behind from crushing or cutting this stone is beneficial in landscaping. Granite dust is a type of sand which can offer drainage and nutrient benefits for landscaping projects. Green Landscape Supply offers quality granite dust at our locations in Norcross and Buford, GA, with limited delivery within the greater Atlanta metro area.
Granite dust is fine particles of granite. You may also hear it called decomposed granite or stone dust, but they are all similar in properties. At Green Landscape Supply, we use granite dust to create some of our most popular soil mixes. Granite dust improves the soil drainage capabilities and adds nutrients to the soil that can benefit flowers and other plants. We also sell it as its own entity for use in various landscaping applications such as paving projects and mulch.
Stone Dust for Landscaping
Granite dust is most commonly used as a paving material. A layer of granite dust is used under some paving materials to provide a level top layer and adequate drainage. Stone dust is also used for filling in cracks between stone pavers. It can be swept into the cracks and compressed to stabilize pavers while still allowing drainage. In some cases, granite dust can be used as a mulch to insulate the soil and preserve moisture.
