Garden paving slabs can make your garden and your entire outdoor area come to life. With so many choices in sizes, shapes, colors and textures that are available today, your yard and garden can be anything from a contemporary and bright space to an earthy and inviting garden nook.
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.
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.
The look of slate can’t be beat when you’re dealing with any number of projects, in all different settings, whether rustic, or modern, there is a cut or color of slate to be found that will make the project look great. The subtle changes in the color throughout the stone, and the different look you can get from a different angle looking at the same piece make the possibilities endless when you use slate in your project.
