Decorative aggregates are materials like coloured slates, beach pebble and beautiful natural stones that can be used to cover large areas and enhance the look and feel of a garden or outside space. They are used for a number of reasons.
One of their biggest benefits is that they can save you time. Using these decorative aggregates cuts down on a lot of the hard work of maintaining a lawn, bedding areas and weeding. You don’t need to spend time mowing or pruning, just more time enjoying your garden and outside space with your nearest and dearest.
Another key reason people are using more aggregate is down to the sheer variety on offer. This makes it easier to find materials that suit your taste, budget and design scheme. With everything from Scottish beach pebbles to green slate, there are stones and durable materials of all shapes, colours and sizes to choose from.
The cost of aggregate materials has also come down in recent years. Compared to some other landscaping materials, aggregate covers a large area for relatively little outlay. This makes it a perfect choice if you’re planning on overhauling your outside space without breaking the bank. Plus, you don’t need any special tools or skills to lay aggregate. Just a few hours and a rake or two and you can spread the materials wherever you want it.
Apart from the odd bit of maintenance in the form of gentle weeding, your aggregate will maintain its good looks for months and even years on end. Plus, if it starts to thin out at any point due to high traffic areas, or the adventures of children or pets, you can easily get more to top up any areas that require it. By adding a few dashes of colourful stone here and there, you can completely change the appearance of your garden and get a professional-looking makeover in a matter of minutes.
