Green Slate is a beautiful natural aggregate made from green slate chippings. The green colour is created by minerals in the rock, which give it a green tint rather than the grey or blue you see with other slates. Green is an ideal colour for enhancing water features and establishing boundaries that appear natural.
The angular shape of Green Slate and the different sizes of chippings make it a good choice for pathways. When compressed, the slate is relatively flat and it doesn’t sink like gravel, so some would say it’s a better choice for paths.
Other uses for green slate include patios, drainage areas, bedding areas, planting areas, borders, hedgerows, around trees and water features. Green Slate is particularly popular as a decorative material around ponds. Because of its durability, you can use it anywhere and it is relatively inexpensive too compared to other slates.
We mostly see Green Slate used for borders and decorative features. It’s available in either 20mm or 40mm sizes. The large chippings are best for pathways. The smaller chippings are best for decoration and planting areas.
Because slate is a natural product, it also ages over time. After a period of several years, the aged appearance has a character all of its own. This is especially useful for period properties where maintaining character is important.
