Slate chippings are small pieces of slate, graded into different sizes. They are popular as a decorative stone due to the range of natural colours available, enabling a wide range of creative effects in modern gardens. They are particularly popular in minimalist gardens that have more hard landscaping and less planting, where they help to add subtle colour all year round. Slate chips are less likely to be dug into by cats and other animals, due to the weight and the shape of the pieces. Our range includes green, plum (our biggest seller) and blue slate chippings in 20mm and 40mm sizes.
Slate chippings are an ever-popular choice with people seeking decorative aggregates for their garden. At Madingley Mulch, we supply a choice of different colours and sizes to suit your needs.
About Slate Chippings
Slate naturally occurs in a number of different colours, including plum, green and blue, depending on the amount of iron it contains. Sometimes different coloured slates are naturally produced in the same area. The varying colours are one of the things that make this natural product so popular with gardeners for a number of uses.
Many customers decide to use slate in preference to other materials such as gravel primarily because of its decorative qualities. It is especially popular in gardens and courtyards with hard landscaping features, such as paving and decking, and is often used on borders and in decorative areas. However, it is also in demand for driveways and path edgings, and can be used over flower beds for weed suppression and decoration. Another reason for choosing slate chips is that they are less likely to be dug up by cats than other garden aggregates.
