Decorative Aggregates are a simple and cost-effective method of revitalising and brightening up your outdoor area, whether it's a small patio, a driveway or a large water feature to transform your garden. They are incredibly versatile and hard-wearing, meaning that once they are in place, you won't need to worry about replacing them for a good while.
The decorative stones not only look great, but they are also a great addition to a path or driveway for added security, as they will make noise when a vehicle or person crosses them.
At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies, have a wide range of high-quality products to choose from:
Cobbles and Pebbles. Naturally rounded stones that have a smooth surface and tend to be a larger size. They are great for water features, rockeries and landscaping and are a popular choice because they are vivid under sunshine, whilst being bright and shiny when wet either from the rain or from your water feature.
Stone Chippings and Garden Gravel. Much smaller and are commonly mixed with cement to create a path or driveway. However, they are also great when used loosely to create interesting landscaping including borders, pathways and as part of borders.
Slate Chippings. A popular choice if you are looking for something a little more dramatic, especially as part of water features, as the wet surface creates a beautiful sheen.
We strongly recommend using a weed membrane beneath your decorative aggregates, as this will help to slow down the growth of weeds, reducing your need to apply weed killer products etc.
A bulk bag is ideal if you have a large area to cover, such as a driveway or large flower beds.
