Buildbase can supply slate in bulk bags, which are a minimum fill of 800KG. Our slate is typically also available in 40mm and 20mm sizes. If you are unsure how many bags will be required, please use our aggregate calculator. Our attractive plum slate and green slate chippings are pastel in appearance when dry. When wet they really come to life, giving a very bright and shiny contemporary look.
Slate chippings are extremely popular for use in gardens and on pathways. As slate chippings are quite flat, they compact and settle nicely underfoot.
Some slate is a by-product of roof tile manufacture thus are classed as a recycled material, meaning they are more environmentally sound than some other quarried stones. Slate chippings are often used as a mulch on borders and gardens to eliminate weed growth and to retain moisture in the soil during warm spells.
For other projects, we have a comprehensive range of other aggregates, such as gravel and limestone.
