Flagstone is a popular choice and can give your pathway or edging a very natural look. Flagstones are thin, flat stones that are irregularly shaped. They’re ideal for an earthy, natural look in your garden. The biggest drawbacks of using flagstones as garden paving slabs are that they’re prone to chipping and staining, and usually much more expensive than man-made materials.
Another thing that should be a big selling point that most people don’t actually think about when they’re looking for outdoor materials is how easy it is to clean. You won’t be mopping your patio any time soon, so you need something that will come clean with the hose when the birds dive bomb your brand new patio, or when someone drops a bowl of dip onto it. Slate is not very porous, especially after it has been waterproofed, so you won’t have to scrub for any normal messes.
Another popular use for slate waste is as a surface dressing; there are many people who are starting to use it as a low cost alternative to gravel for their driveways. I’ve never actually seen this done in person, but I would imagine it could give you a really neat look, with all of the extra flecks of color that slate has in it, and you could have the only dark colored gravel driveway in your neighborhood.
The different variety of paving materials that are available today include asphalt, cobble stones, a variety of bonds, different kinds of brick and stone to name a few of them. You can either get them installed professionally or do it yourself. Remember to keep in mind that whatever kind of material that you choose will have its plus and minus points. So it all depends on how much you are willing to spend on it and what kind of material you want.
