One may ask, what is a patio slab? A slab is a block consisting of a thick piece of a material. This block shape makes it easier to be installed. One can install block by block the patio, as a gradual process, which makes the installation cheaper. Traditionally patio slabs used to be considered the ones which were made out of concrete to form a less expensive and yet functional patio space. This type of patio was cheaper because concrete is less expansive than other materials like the ostentatious stones used for paving a patio.
The use that is now growing the fastest (pun certainly intended) is for use in gardens as mulch, or as a surface dressing for paths. As a mulch, slate waste works very well, it comes in a variety of colors, and won’t rot away like wood chips, or other organic materials will. The downside of this of course, is that the slate waste mulch won’t add any nutrients to the soil like other kinds will. As a surface dressing it offers the same variety of colors, along with being cheaper than gravel, and lasting longer than wood chips that some people use.
Gardens in the home not just make it look beautiful and add to the aesthetic value of the house but the entire experience of gardening alone can be extremely satisfying. It is definitely not an easy task but with patience and proper planning one can help one make not just a good looking garden but also one which will also have a good monetary value.
Having a paving slab in the court yard of your lovely home may be one of your dreams. Very often this is quite an expensive venture and the cost is the main culprit that prevents most people from installing this in your home.
