Crushed Granite Patio


Recommended Posts

I am going to make a small informal "patio" around the firepit at the lake using crushed granite. When I typically landscape an area with woodchips or rock, I'll roundup the spot and then cover with some heavy duty landscape fabric. Do you think this is necessary with crushed, packed rock like this? The guy at the nursery doesn't seem to think so if we go 3 inches deep or so. Again, I'm going to tamp this down good after its smoothed out so it will be along the lines of cement almost. Any experiences/insight with using crushed granite for a patio or rock is appreciated. Thanks!

I would stick put some fabric down if you are going to used crushed granite. Fabric is pretty cheap.You will not get a concrete-like compaction as you would using class 5 or class 2 limestone. I use granite for permeable driveways and patios.Either way you will probably end up with weeds but depending on the size of the granite they should pull pretty easy.
