Gravels & Aggregates
Instantly transform your garden, drive, path or pond with gravel or aggregate. Gravel and aggregates are low maintenance, affordable and easy to lay. Here at Decorative Aggregates, we stock the most extensive range of quality aggregates in the UK and our wide range of colourful gravel and aggregates can be used to complement any existing planting or landscaping areas.
Gravel is a versatile aggregate with many uses for outdoor improvements:
Base layer under tarmac
Surrounding water features
We offer gravel in a variety of sizes to suit your needs and they can be purchased in bulk bags or individually sealed 20kg poly bags. The gravel is available in different stone types and we ensure products that aren’t suitable for ponds are labelled with a warning sign on their product page with our ‘Not Fish Friendly’ icon.
Benefits of Gravel
Gravel is a fantastic choice in any landscaping and gardening project thanks to a range of practical benefits which reduce outdoor upkeep.
Low maintenance – gravel suppresses weeds and doesn’t require any mowing or watering.
Drainage – gravel provides natural drainage, leaving your drive, path or garden, puddle-free.
Hard-wearing – gravel very rarely gets affected by adverse weather conditions.
Secure – gravel is an effective security measure, making a distinct, crunch sound when it’s walked upon.
Simple to lay – gravel is easier to lay than concrete, paving and tarmac.
Mulch - gravel is drought resistant, helping plants to survive the warm summers.
Gravel Colours and Styles
Our best-selling chestnut coloured Pea Gravel is an attractive natural aggregate and the perfect accompaniment to a pond or water feature.
Stunning white gravel gives any garden that wow factor. Try Polar White Marble for a brighter, modern look if you want to complement individual plants or provide an eye-catching contrast to slate rockeries.
If you’re looking to create a beautiful gravel driveway, the warm hue of Cotswold Gold Gravel is ideal for paths and drives - delivering a professional finish with subtle creams and yellows.
Gravel for Mulch
Gardeners can use our aggregates and gravel as mulches. Used on top of soil, they aid moisture retention in the summer and provide insulation from temperature fluctuation. Gravels such as Cheshire Pink, Cotswold Buff and Pea Gravel create both a very effective and attractive solution.
