Blue slate chippings and much more


Decorative chippings are a simple, inexpensive way to add character and style to any garden. We stock a wide range of different styles and are pretty sure that whatever colour, texture or look you’re after, we’ll be able to help.

Chippings are useful in a wide variety of ways:

•        In small borders and boundaries, they can either complement or contrast natural elements within the planting scheme.

•        Chippings can be used as an edging, or even across a whole large area, in any hard-landscaping scheme.

•        Professional landscapers often use chippings as a central design element to a whole area.

•        Tough, long-lasting chippings can be used as a parking area or as an entire driveway.

Decorative chippings come in a variety of sizes, ranging from 6mm limestone to 150mm Scottish cobbles. In most sizes we can offer you a choice of a rounded, smoother finishes or a more rugged, angular character.

Chippings of various sizes can be combined, with smaller stones sweeping onto larger ones, to give a natural-looking progression similar to beachscapes. For example, our smooth, rounded Scottish pebbles are available in two sizes: highly decorative 14–20mm and ever-popular 20–30mm pebbles. These products are often used alongside our Scottish cobbles 50–80mm in beach-style landscaping.

If you’re after something sharper looking, rather than rounded stones, we have Welsh green 14mm available from stock and a 20mm size available to order. Staffordshire pink is available from stock in both 10mm and 20mm sizes. And there’s a range of slates in different sizes and colours.

Finally, gravel. Finding a substitute for the now-unavailable Chichester gravel can be tricky – but we think our Thames shingle range has nailed it. This is available from stock in both 10mm and 20mm sizes.
