What It Is
Stone dust is like a darker, coarser version of sand. It is a byproduct of running stones through a crushing machine to make crushed stone.
How It's Used
Stone dust makes a great setting bed for stone pavers. It can be smoothed to create a very flat surface and it's strong enough to support the weight of stone pavers.
How to Buy It
You can buy stone dust at most stone yards. Some excavation companies sell stone dust, along with crushed stone and sand that you might need for other projects. For a fee, most of these places will deliver stone dust to your property.
