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 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.
The look of slate can’t be beat when you’re dealing with any number of projects, in all different settings, whether rustic, or modern, there is a cut or color of slate to be found that will make the project look great. The subtle changes in the color throughout the stone, and the different look you can get from a different angle looking at the same piece make the possibilities endless when you use slate in your project.
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.
