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 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.
Concrete garden paving slabs are a popular and economical choice. One popular option is concrete that’s been cast or stamped to look like paving stones or natural stone with imperfections and irregularities built in. Concrete slabs are even tinted in a way that makes them hard to distinguish from the real thing.
What one needs to understand is that though these various slab paving options cost more than the concrete ones they also offer more options on the creative side. All this helps a great deal in making sure that the garden or patio not just looks good but also can be maintained well.
