How to Pack Down Crushed Granite

Crushed granite has a finer texture than gravel. Often called “decomposed granite,” the small pieces compact more smoothly than coarse gravel, although both materials are packed the same way. Packing or tamping helps crushed granite settle more densely than loosely laid material, which results in a firmer path, driveway or patio. Where the granite is poured over a gravel substrate, dampen the gravel with water before compacting it.

Maybe not herbs, but I really like the idea of this kind of structure in the back yard. Pea gravel separates the shaped beds, nice. Choose plants that will thrive in my unfortunate climate.
