STONE DUST - Michigan's locally available material. Stone dust is a screened by product of a rock crushing operation. The quality of the material is determined by the screen size, and the source of the material being crushed. Eastern Michigan sources tend to be limestone. Western sources are the best - granite rock and northern also tend to be rock but have sand components that make them loose. Also northern sources are in low demand so the screen sizes tend to be coarse. Popular because of it's price and low maintenance product, it is a poor choice. The player's perspective is that it is hard and abrasive. Use of Turface MVP helps increase water retention, reduces glare, increases drainage and hardness.
