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.
People do not leave any stone unturned to give their homes the best look they can afford, and an addition of patio makes the palette of your home flamboyant more. However, as not everyone earns the same, one may find installing a patio somewhat tough. However, there are ways still. You can still furbish and add flamboyance to your home through adding patio slabs, which are available at affordable prices abundantly in the market.
The most common use of slate waste, that has been around for a long time is to use the waste for sub-base material. When people are putting in a shed, or a patio, or anything that needs a good, solid base for stability of the project, they can pick up slate waste to put in under the base material (sand, pea gravel, etc).
Concrete garden paving slabs are one of the least expensive options, but they do tend to crack over time. Cracking and concrete’s natural tendency to stain are two of the biggest disadvantages of using concrete. If one slab needs to be replaced, it’s also very difficult to do so without leaving marks and scars around the area.
