The first thought that comes to the mind with the thought of garden is flowers and trees. A garden is not just about the flora there but also the other aspects count. Another important major thing that is essential in the garden making is the paving slabs. The common idea is that the paving slabs should be made of concrete however, one now it is a well accepted that the paving slabs can be made of an array of materials. These could vary from being slate, granite, limestone etc.
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.
The only problem with slate waste being used in these ways is that there just isn’t enough of it to go around in a lot of cases. This is great for the industry, as it means they actually have demand for their waste products, but it could also mean a price hike for it in the future. For now however, if you can get your hands on it, it makes a good cheap alternative to many other materials, a lot of which aren’t a waste product.
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.
