Welsh Green Slate Chippings 40mm
Beautiful green slate from Wales, with tones of grey and green, this lovely slate is a perfect foil for plants and rockeries. It is also ideal to use around water and in water features.
This 40mm slate is quite chunky so it is great for adding texture to bedding areas. We wouldn't recommend this size for walking on as it could be quite uneven underfoot.

How deep should you lay the 40mm green 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 sledge hammer or place compactor (these can often be hired from a hardware store).
What else can I use green slate chippings for?
Green slate chippings look stunning, and add that extra wow factor to a rockery or water feature. Check out our inspiration pages for more detail.
