Slate Chippings

Slate Chippings are a decorative aggregate often used to add an attractive look to landscaping and gardening projects. Slate is a fine-grained, layered rock made up of clay and volcanic ash. The rock formation requires it to be cut along the grain, which gives it its well-known and recognisable smooth surface.

Decorative slate chippings are an excellent choice for paths, driveways, rockeries, borders, and much more. Decorative garden slate has an attractive glisten when wet making it an ideal choice for all seasons or around water features.

Slate Mulch

Slate chippings are most commonly used in decorative landscaping, however they can also be used to create slate mulch borders and beds in your garden. The main benefit of creating a mulch with slate is that the top soil it is mixed with will help plants and trees to grow. Slate is a good option instead of using bark or compost as it won’t break down and rot over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Slate Chippings different colours?
Slate Chippings are produced from a natural rock and the colour is based on the levels of iron that were present within the rock whilst it was forming. The overall colouring and hue of the slate chippings can also be affected by the existence of other organic materials. For decorative slate chippings the colours selected are more likely to be plum, blue, or green.
