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.
These paved areas do not just serve as walk ways but also act as borders as well as functional areas. Today everyone wants to get things made instantly and so one may also opt for pre- made garden slabs. These are priced as per the variety and the ease of installation.
The only problem with slate waste being used in these ways is that there just isn’t enough of it to go around in a lot of cases. This is great for the industry, as it means they actually have demand for their waste products, but it could also mean a price hike for it in the future. For now however, if you can get your hands on it, it makes a good cheap alternative to many other materials, a lot of which aren’t a waste product.
