Options for Mixing GraniteCrete with Decomposed Granite

There are three primary methods for mixing GraniteCrete with decomposed granite when installing GraniteCrete. The best method to use depends on the size of the installation.

Based on our experience, we recommend the following methods for the following installation sizes:

  • For installations up to 1,000 square feet, we recommend mixing GraniteCrete and decomposed granite onsite using a portable concrete mixer, preferably with a fiberglass drum for easy cleaning.
  • For installations ranging from 1,000 square feet to 5,000 square feet, we recommend the use of pre-mixed (and dry) decomposed granite and GraniteCrete admixture; pre-mixed material can be purchased from one of our retailers.
  • For installations greater than 5,000 square feet, we recommend the use of a volumetric mixer. A volumetric mixer has separate areas for decomposed granite, GraniteCrete admixture, and water. It is able to mix these materials together at the job site to produce GraniteCrete ready to install, saving valuable time.

Whatever the method, it is important the the GraniteCrete admixture and the decomposed granite be mixed evenly. For guidance on mixing or installing GraniteCrete, refer to our installation instructions, contact your retailer, or contact us.

We can recommend the following businesses below for rental of a volumetric truck.
