Paving stones, which are a combination of concrete and natural materials, are usually guaranteed by the manufacturer against chipping and cracking. If installed correctly, garden paving slabs made from paving stones can be flipped over to hide a stain or problem without ruining the look of the area. Paving stones are more expensive than other man-made options like concrete. But the low maintenance required for these garden paving slabs means you can easily maintain the look of your garden and patio area for years to come.
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.
When you choose paving slabs, be aware that each material has advantages and disadvantages. From the cost to the amount of maintenance required, each choice is unique. Strike a balance between how much you’re willing to pay and how much work you’re willing to put in to keep your paved area looking good, and you’ll find the perfect material.
This serves a couple of purposes, first, it give the base materials a good area to sit on, it allows water to pass through its gaps, and it is cheap. If you’re building yourself a patio from slate paving slabs, than you have another plus, if you go to a slate quarry or a place selling slate with access to their own quarry, you can buy both your stones and your sub-base at the same place.
