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).
Another popular use for slate waste is as a surface dressing; there are many people who are starting to use it as a low cost alternative to gravel for their driveways. I’ve never actually seen this done in person, but I would imagine it could give you a really neat look, with all of the extra flecks of color that slate has in it, and you could have the only dark colored gravel driveway in your neighborhood.
Natural brick used in gardens and patios won’t fade, but there are other disadvantages. Like concrete, brick has no natural give. It’s prone to cracking, and oils and other stains can ruin the look. Because of the way bricks are installed, removing one because of a crack or chip is difficult and can mar look of the entire area.
Because of its decorative features and inexpensive, people highly prefer to spruce up their exteriors with these materials. They are also easy to install. Homeowners take the help and guidance of the professional and experienced contractors to get a patio slab install in their garden yard because they have impressive knowledge about the job and get it done in a flawless manner. They measure the length and width of the garden for a better look.
