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.
Slate is a material that needs to be cut and chipped into size either by hand, or by machinery, and sometimes there is a significant amount of waste involved in the process. One of the biggest perpetrators seems to be large paving slabs – due to their large size, and particular shapes, there are a lot of large cuts involved in their manufacturing. There are many ways that the slate waste is used, but I’m only going to list three, as I don’t want this post to get too long.
It’s not just the trees, plants and lawn that make the garden beautiful, the paving slabs and bricks are also involved in the beautification. Traditionally the slabs were made of concrete, however these days the slabs are available in a wide range and array of materials. These materials include limestone, granite, sandstone etc.
Another advantage to the clay brick pavers is the non-slip, skid proof texture they offer. The surface of these bricks is very abrasive and very good for wet areas that get lots of traffic. These would be places like pools and pathways. Many public areas use them for pedestrian walkways. And they can be used immediately after being put in place. No waiting time for setting up like some of the other applications. Paving slabs and paver applications can be a real asset for your landscaping needs, and can be the finishing touch you are looking for that makes your yard or garden look great.
