All about Slate Chippings
Our slate chippings are available in a variety of naturally occurring colours and shades that are truly eye-catching– the perfect way to make a statement with your garden, paths, driveway, or borders.
Our slate chips can also be used as a decorative feature in plant pots (whilst offering the benefits of aiding water retention and discouraging weed growth) – the natural shades of the chippings look stunning when bordering plants and flowers of all colours.
They can even be placed in water and are 100% fish friendly, making them ideal for adding the finishing touch to your pond or water features.
Not sure which colour slate chippings to choose? Our friendly team are happy to advise: just give us a call on 0114 437 2145. Alternatively, all our aggregates are available in sample sizes, priced at just £3.99 (delivery included).
Please note: all of our aggregates are formed from natural materials and will change colour when wet. The sizes quoted above are the grading size of the screen that the pebbles pass through. As a result the actual size of the slate can be larger.
High strength and long-wearing, slate chippings are a great choice for driveways and garden paths. Their beautiful colours catch the light in the sunshine and turn a darker shade when wet that gives off a lustrous sheen.
Our slate chippings are available in 20mm, 40mm and 30-100 mm assortments. More compact 20mm garden slate chippings are perfect for mulching, helping plants thrive in the hotter months by absorbing heat and ensuring the soil is not too alkaline for plants such as camellias. A weather-resistant and weed-resistant option for revamping garden pathways, the reflective nature of slate chippings will brighten up high traffic areas. Because slate doesn't hold water, there’s no chance of puddling either. Combining different colours will give you a natural but eye-catching look whilst contemporary but classic grey will keep things minimalistic.
Slate chippings are also a cost-effective and practical option when it comes to resurfacing a driveway. Durable and decorative, this natural aggregate always looks elegant and modern. Puddle resistant, chip resistant and slip-resistant, popular shades of plum and blue offer striking curb appeal whilst grey is a great choice for timeless style.
