What Is Stone Dust
When manufacturers process large stones to form gravel, they send it through a machine that crushes it up into smaller pieces. As the pieces go through the machine they pass over a screen that sifts out all the tiny bits of stone and dust.
This mixture of dust and small stone bits is sold as a separate product, and it is sometimes called “quarry dust,” “quarry screenings,” or simply “grit.”
You can use this fine dust in your landscaping for various purposes.
Uses For Stone Dust
Stone dust is mainly used as a base for any type of pavers or other stones. It makes an excellent patio or walkway base because it is fine enough to create a smooth surface for laying a flat patio, and strong enough to support the weight of large stones.
Here are a few more common uses for stone dust:
- Leveling and forming a strong base for retaining walls
- As a level surface for pathways
- Any other place where you need a smooth, level, compact base layer
Because it contains so many fines, this material needs moderate compaction to create a good base. Otherwise, it will compact on its own over time.
