BLOG: Decorative Stone

Economical & Attractive

What do you know about decorative stone? In recent years it has become very popular in our gardens due to the fact it is not only an economical alternative to laying a brick or stone path it is also helps to create attractive and low maintenance gardens. Furthermore, decorative stone can be used as an alternative to mulch as it keeps down weeds in the borders. 

So you will be pleased to learn we stock an extensive range of high quality pebbles, gravel, cobbles, rockery stone, slate and chippings supplied by Kelkay.

Colour & Texture

You can lay pebbles and aggregates over a large area, which is a great sustainable alternative to a lawn, as rainwater will naturally drain away just as it does through grass. Compliment water features by surrounding them with the colourful hues of decorative stoness, or use a mixture of sandstone setts and different size paving slabs to make an attractive and interesting path. Rockery stone and cobbles come in a number of sizes so you can create different effects along flower borders, edges and pathways. The vast selection of colours from warm Mediterranean tones to artic whites and blues means there is a decorative stone to suit any style of garden.

Transform your Garden Overnight

Paths are an integral to our whole garden, as they are not only functional but also provide focal points and boundaries, while  bringing colour and texture to soft landscaping.  You can use natural stone stepping-stones across your lawn to create patterns and to lead the eye down the garden. Perhaps you have a north facing area in your garden where nothing agrees to grow? If so, creating an imaginative area of hard landscaping will provide an attractive and low maintenance option. The best bit of all is you can lay these materials so quickly and easily you can transform your garden almost overnight!

Correct Amount

Depending on whether you are laying a path, creating a low maintenance flower border or simply creating a focal point you will need to ensure you buy enough of your chosen material to lay it to the correct level. Please do contact us for advice if you are unsure.
