The first thought that comes to the mind with the thought of garden is flowers and trees. A garden is not just about the flora there but also the other aspects count. Another important major thing that is essential in the garden making is the paving slabs. The common idea is that the paving slabs should be made of concrete however, one now it is a well accepted that the paving slabs can be made of an array of materials. These could vary from being slate, granite, limestone etc.
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 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.
When you choose paving slabs, be aware that each material has advantages and disadvantages. From the cost to the amount of maintenance required, each choice is unique. Strike a balance between how much you’re willing to pay and how much work you’re willing to put in to keep your paved area looking good, and you’ll find the perfect material.
