Quantity Calculator

It's estimated you'll need tonnes or bulk bag.

The quantity calculator provides a rough approximation only.

Please note: Whilst we take care to ensure our photography is representative of the products we sell, many consist of natural materials and therefore variations in colour and form may occur.

Our plum or purple slate chippings are both practical and aesthetically appealing, ideal for use in a variety of different settings from driveways and paths to flowerbeds and borders. They can also be used creatively around the garden, with their bold plum and purple hues contrasting well with plants. A flat, angular product, these chippings make for a comfortable walking surface and can be used on driveways, albeit in high traffic areas the slate will gradually break down when walked or driven on. Decorative plum slate can even be used as a pot topping material as it will prevent weeds from growing and aid moisture retention in soil by reducing evaporation. Safe for fish and other wildlife when thoroughly washed, our slate is pH neutral and can be used as pond substrate or used to decorate around the edges of any water feature. The bold colours are enhanced when wet, becoming deeper and more dramatic.

As this is a natural product colours can vary slightly, and there will be the odd blue or grey chipping mixed in, but it's this variation in colour that makes the slate unique.

The product is excellent with good distribution of size

The product delivered was blue slate and not the plum slate which was ordered. I accepted the cheaper blue slate.

“It is what it says on the tin”

At first it seems more grey than anything but this is just dust. Once laid and a few rain showers on it or a good hosing then it’s fine.

lovely purple colour

love the purple colour, sets off plants perfectly and so far is keeping weeds down.
