Stone dust also called stone screenings is like a darker, coarser version of sand. It is a byproduct of running stones through a crushing machine to make the crushed stone. It has been used and continues to be used as the base and setting bed in many patios, hardscape blocks, walkways and driveways that are second only to sand as a base for pavers.
A thin layer is applied and leveled to allow pavers laid directly on top of the stone dust. Because stone dust contains very fine mineral aggregates, it forms a hard, impenetrable surface.
Recently stone dust has found another use as a soil additive. The minerals in stone dust help in the growing of many garden vegetables prove that stone dust can replace the nutrients that have been lost to the earth over the past centuries as a result of excessive farming and use of harsh chemicals in agriculture. It absorbs moisture, holds on to it and drains very slowly because powdery nature restrains drainage that why crops don’t need a lot of water to produce harvests of magnificent vegetables.
Also, is very often used in horse stalls and riding areas.
