I'm looking at different types of paths to install in an edwardian garden. I was thinking a 10mm pea shingle path with a brick edge, or maybe a herringbone brick path.
I've been trying to work out what material the paths around an old house near my parents is. It's very solid underfoot but with plenty of dusty small loose stones on it's surface. I've seen it in the grounds of stately homes and gardens. Similar to this
I've been searching online and found something called "decomposed granite", it seems to be only available in america. Does anyone know what i'm talking about?! and if so, what is it? And, is it practical or usual to have it in a domestic garden? How is it installed?
All thoughts and explanations would be very very helpful,
