This stunning slate may have a few blue and grey pieces intermingled, and it provides a natural, open-textured finish.
Alternatively, try our competitively priced Graphite Grey Slate, our best selling 40mm slate. This 40mm slate provides a lovely rugged texture when packed down firmly. As it's a natural product, the colour can vary from blue-grey to plum, however, this variation is what makes this slate unique. The actual size ranges from 15-50mm.
How deep should you lay the 40mm plum slate chippings?
These slate chippings are best laid 5-6cm deep.
What do you need to lay under slate chippings?
You need to create a sturdy base before you add slate chippings. Line your trench with 10cm of crushed stone to create this. Compact this with a sledgehammer or place compactor (these can often be hired from a hardware store).
What else can you use plum slate chippings for?
