DECORATIVE GRAVEL AND CHIPPINGS Gravels are gaining an increasing presence particularly within environmentally sensitive areas where there is a requirement to conserve water and apply a greener alternative than paving or hard surfaces. These products create an attractive, SUDS compliant surface which reduces the effect of storm water run-off and promotes natural drainage into ground water systems. Alluvial gravels and decorative processed chippings provide an extensive selection of surfacing media for any garden application. Driveways, paths, borders, roofing, surfacing and many general landscaping schemes benefit from this wide range of products. Coverage – As a guide, a tonne of stone laid at a depth of 40mm will cover approximately 14-15 square metres. Page 4

SLATE A recycled, bi-product of the roofing industry, this material is used extensively as a cost effective mulch which alleviates water evaporation whilst providing a permeable surface for plants and wildlife. The three colours are washed and supplied in 20mm and 40mm grades and used extensively in hard landscaping projects. Slate is also tumbled to provide smooth, rounded Paddlestones in a 50-100mm and 100mm+ size. As agents for Welsh Slate we can ensure that these products are offered at their most competitive prices.
