Red Granite

I am about to purchase this product to use as a mulch and for its color.
I checked out a local distributor and his product is more round then my sample. I believe I would be much happier with the sample because it is mostly flat and it is 1 inch by 2 inches by 5/16ths. This I think will make it easier to walk on. The rounded type which is about 3/4 inch may feel like walking on marbles. Do you agree?

A main road borders my property and I will be doing weekly cleanups to pick up discards like cans and bottles from uncaring motorists. So the stone mulch must feel comfortable underfoot. Your thoughts?

Rounded rock, such as pea rock. is quite round and is not like marbles at all. They are not smooth enough nor are they on a hard surface to encourage rolling. I don't this would be the case at all.

I would think unless your walking in bare feet, anything will be just fine other than mud or water.

I went back to the distributor and this time I spread out some of his stone and walked on it and I was comfortable with it. Thanks.
