Small stones and stone chippings (also known as decorative gravel) are perhaps the most widely used decorative aggregates, as they provide an economical and easy way to achieve a landscaped look in gardens and driveways. Typically 10mm or 20mm in size, they are available in a variety of colours and shapes – from smooth round stones to rough stone chips. We stock a variety of stone chippings in different types of stone including coloured granite chippings, traditional golden gravel and white gravel (both ever popular choices for driveways), cotswold buff and limestone chippings.
If you are looking for decorative stones for your garden, we have many different types to choose from, including garden chippings, stones and gravel in a range of colours.
About Decorative Stones
Decorative garden stones are popular because they make gardens, paths and driveways look more attractive, but they are low-maintenance and don’t require a major outlay. The textures available range from small, rough chips to smooth, larger stones. Cotswold Buff and Dove Grey are among our most popular garden stones. Our ranges also include small 10mm and 20mm decorative gravel and granite varieties in colours including gold, white and pink, as well as limestone chippings.
As well as being used to brighten driveways and footpaths and add colour to garden landscaping, decorative stones are also frequently used in mulching borders. As well as looking good, they help with garden drainage and to suppress weeds. They are also highly versatile, since they can easily be laid in uneven areas, providing a stable surface for children and pets. Yet another advantage is added security, since the sound of stones underfoot can alert you to intruders.
