Make a perfect entrance to your home or garden using Honister Green Slate on driveways, paths, displays and rockeries. Because we do not waste any of our extracted slate, we have a huge selection of different types of Lake District stone. You can collect yourself direct from us or get us to deliver. The photos below show a tape measure extended to 12 inches to give you a sense of scale.
Honister Slate Mine offers two types of crazy paving – thick and thin. Thin is between half-an-inch and an inch thick, while thick is between an inch to one-and-half inch thick. Thick is best used on driveways where you’ll be parking vehicles, while Thin is perfect for pathways. It cost £10 plus VAT per square metre for thin, and £15 plus VAT per sq metre for thick.
If you want to be really precise, calculate how much you’ll need by simply measuring where you want the path to go (its length and then its width) and then multiply these two figures together to get the total square metres you’ll need to cover.
Flower Garden Border
Natural slate stones stacked high make a decorative flower garden border. The varying sizes of the natural slate stones add dimension and design interest to the border. Slate is often used as a flower garden border for modern style exteriors, but it can also work for a traditional and country style decor. They average at 6 inch width at 9 inch height. They come in bundles of 15 slates for £22.50.
Our chippings are another way of creating a striking driveway, path or feature area in your garden.
Our chippings are between 20mm and 30mm in thickness and a tonne of Honister Green Slate chippings will cover an area approximately 11 sq metres. For a tonne it costs just £29 plus VAT for them loose and collected from us, or only £39 plus VAT in a dumpy bag. We’ll help you get them onto your vehicle but you’ll need a trailer or a pick-up to get them home.
If you want a pathway or a set of harder-wearing steps then choose Paddle Stones. Naturally, these are bigger and thicker than chippings and are useful if your steps are likely to take a lot of wear and tear. These are between 50mm to 100mm thick and a tonne will cover 11 square metres with a 30mm depth. Paddle Stones can also be incorporated into gardens and ponds or to showcase certain areas of your garden. For a tonne it costs just £45 plus VAT for them loose or in a dumpy bag collected from us it’s only £55 plus VAT.
Many gardens now have rockery stones and ours range between 14 inches and 32 inches in size. For a tonne of these, it’s just £85 plus VAT and this will cover an area of two square metres.
If you’re plagued with inconsiderate motorists parking on grass or the border of your home, create your own private parking areas with our parking stones which can be left natural or painted white. We offer a range of parking stones in a variety of thickness and sizes. Just get in touch and tell us what you want.
You can use dust on driveways, footpaths and roads as a handy base layer or as a solid material itself. Our dust size starts from 12mm to fine dust grain at £12 per tonne plus VAT. In a dumpy bag it’s £22 per tonne plus VAT.
