Start as you mean to go on….

Clear those borders, empty those plant pots and trim those hedges.

Create a fabulous gravel garden that requires little effort but gives a big impact, with the added bonus of being affordable and low maintenance.

Here at Decorative Aggregates, we stock a huge range of beautiful gravels, stunning slates chippings and a large selection of feature stones to help create the ideal garden for you.

With aggregates to suit different colour schemes, designs and tastes, from Red, Green, Plum, Black and Whites to golden colours. There’s something for everyone.

For a more environmental friendly option our Slate Chippings are a by-product of the roofing slate manufacturing. Our slate chippings are dispatched directly from the quarry down in Wales. We have 4 stunning colours available Graphite Grey, Plum, Green and Blue. Perfect for bringing any garden area alive.

Why not go for something a little different and eye-catching  with  the stunning  ‘Barleycorn’.

We import this fabulous Quartz aggregate from Europe, with its distinctive mix of yellow, creams and ambers, it really gives those dull areas a lift. This aggregate is not widely available in the UK.  As its hard wearing and durable it is perfect for drives, groundcover and paths, in fact in any area.  It is between 8-20mm and best laid 4-5cm deep.

Add those finishing touches or even add a feature to your Gravel Garden, using one of our beautiful slate standing stones, or one of our range of boulders or even a water feature for the wow factor.
