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 and borders.
Slate chippings are used for a variety of outdoor improvements including:
Water feature edging
Patio gap fillers
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.
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.
