Another thing that should be a big selling point that most people don’t actually think about when they’re looking for outdoor materials is how easy it is to clean. You won’t be mopping your patio any time soon, so you need something that will come clean with the hose when the birds dive bomb your brand new patio, or when someone drops a bowl of dip onto it. Slate is not very porous, especially after it has been waterproofed, so you won’t have to scrub for any normal messes.
Slate is one of the most durable materials that you can use in a project, there are hundreds of buildings that have been around for literally thousands of years that have been constructed from slate. These structures tend to be in areas where there is little to no freezing cycle however. It is recommended that if you’re using it anywhere where there is snow or frost, even occasionally, you had better make sure you use a waterproofing agent on your slate paving slabs as often as recommended, or you risk the frost breaking the stone apart over the next few season.
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 paving slabs don’t just make the garden beautiful but also save on a lot of money that one would have otherwise spent on landscaping. This also helps in unleashing the creative abilities of the homemakers. The entire idea is not just about having a good looking garden but living every moment of having a garden which has a unique touch, since it will have your own personal touch. All in all it is about giving the creativity in you a boost.
