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.
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.
Flagstone is a popular choice and can give your pathway or edging a very natural look. Flagstones are thin, flat stones that are irregularly shaped. They’re ideal for an earthy, natural look in your garden. The biggest drawbacks of using flagstones as garden paving slabs are that they’re prone to chipping and staining, and usually much more expensive than man-made materials.
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.
