This is one of our best-selling slates! The 40mm Blue Slate Chipping product is the larger size of blue slate, and it’s especially good for ground cover and rockeries. It includes plum, grey and green coloured pieces, for a natural variation in colour - this is very common in slate.
SLATE ORDERS: Due to high demand, delivery timings may be extended. A 1-3 day delay from the chosen delivery date may be experienced due to unprecedented volumes currently passing through the UK haulage network.
Blue is the flattest slate we have, and the 40mm will settle down very well on paths. This gives an open-textured finish, even when packed down firmly.
Alternatively try our competitively priced Graphite Grey Slate, a beautiful dark slate with flecks of gold running through it. The natural colour variations are what makes this slate special, as it can vary from blue-grey to plum. It is also known as Welsh Blue Slate or Heather Slate. The actual size ranges from 15-50mm.
How deep should I lay the 40mm blue slate chippings?
These slate chippings are best laid 5-6cm deep.
How to stop weeds growing through your slate chippings
Weeds can sprout through your slate chipping which can cause unwanted maintenance and hours wasted plucking them out. To prevent this, you can add a weed resistant membrane before you lay your slate. This can be simply cut to the shape of your landscaping area.
