Slate Chippings

Slate has never been more popular. More versatile than gravel, the majority of slate chippings are flat, making them easy to walk on and the ideal material to revamp and refurbish paths, driveways and borders.

Slate Uses

Slate chippings are used for a variety of outdoor improvements including:


Garden paths


Water feature edging


Ground cover

Pond edging


Planting areas

Patio gap fillers

Slate Benefits

Slate chippings are available in 4 stunning colours, which can bring contrast to any landscaping scheme, either alongside planting, aggregates, paving or tarmac finishes. Even better, it looks fantastic both wet and dry – becoming a beautiful darker colour when it’s wet.

Besides its beautiful landscaping effects, garden slate also carries other significant benefits. 

Environmentally-friendly - slate stone is the by-product of roofing slate manufacturing; it’s classed as a recycled material and therefore more environmentally-friendly than other quarried stones.

Low maintenance - you don’t need to trim, water or cut a gravel garden.

Simple to lay – slate chippings are easier to lay than other driveway materials such as tarmac and concrete.

Reduce weeds - you simply need a weed membrane below your slate to stop weeds growing through.

Mulching - slate retains moisture and cools your soil, helping your plants in warmer weather. 

Hard-wearing – slate is durable and rarely affected by adverse weather conditions.

Slate Colours and Styles

What colour slate can you get? Here at Decorative Aggregates, our slate chippings are  available in a vast range of shapes and colours. There’s so much choice! Choose from blue, plum, green or graphite grey slate chippings to add stunning colour to your space.

40mm slate chippings are chunky - perfect for water feature edging or mulch. Try the 40mm Graphite Grey Slate.

20mm slate chippings are flat, making them easy to walk on and the ideal aggregate for a garden path. Take a look at our 20mm Welsh Green Slate Chippings.

Striking larger blue paddlestones create a scree-like effect due to their polished, flat finish - ideal for ground cover, rockeries or planting areas. 

Slate mini mulch is smaller in size with a compact finish, so it’s perfect for paths and borders. Take a look at our gorgeous Plum and Blue Slate Mini Mulch.

Angular slate interlocks meaning it can lie very flat. 40mm Blue Slate Chippings work beautifully for a driveway. 

Or why not build a stunning rockery focal point?
