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 different variety of paving materials that are available today include asphalt, cobble stones, a variety of bonds, different kinds of brick and stone to name a few of them. You can either get them installed professionally or do it yourself. Remember to keep in mind that whatever kind of material that you choose will have its plus and minus points. So it all depends on how much you are willing to spend on it and what kind of material you want.
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.
One may ask, what is a patio slab? A slab is a block consisting of a thick piece of a material. This block shape makes it easier to be installed. One can install block by block the patio, as a gradual process, which makes the installation cheaper. Traditionally patio slabs used to be considered the ones which were made out of concrete to form a less expensive and yet functional patio space. This type of patio was cheaper because concrete is less expansive than other materials like the ostentatious stones used for paving a patio.
